Migration as Concept reaches ‘end of life’

The access control system manufacturer Inner Range has asked customers with Concept systems to migrate swiftly to Integriti as Concept has reached ‘end of life’. Integriti is compatible with 95 per cent of Concept hardware so migrating is easy, efficient and extremely cost-effective at only a fraction of the cost of an entire system replacement, the makers say.

Inner Range first announced Concept was nearing ‘end of life’ in January 2019. Some Concept parts are still available to buy and Inner Range is continuing to provide technical support for customers, repairing or replacing parts from stock or suitable alternatives as necessary. However, the firm says that the product’s underlying technology is no longer economical to maintain in comparison with modern platforms like Integriti. The manufacturer is now urging customers to migrate before parts become obsolete. Concept systems use Insight software. Insight follows the same ‘end of life’ timeline as Concept.

Tim Northwood, General Manager at Inner Range, said: “Concept was our flagship product, first launched in 1989, so it’s had a good innings and we remain very proud of its legacy. But we gave notice 18 months ago that Concept was reaching End of Life and we are renewing our call for any remaining Concept customers who have not yet migrated, to move to our Integriti system.

“We’ll continue to provide technical support for Concept users where we can. But eventually we’ll reach a point where it’s no longer possible to source suitable parts so we want to help customers secure their systems for the long term. Integriti is a brilliant product for small, medium and enterprise spaces and offers a very cost-effective migration path for our Concept customers.”

About the product

Integriti is for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at local, national and global levels, Inner Range says. Concept users migrating to Integriti can make more integrations with manufacturers for security, building automation, people and business continuity processes; and the product compatible with IT platforms, such as Windows and Vista.

Concept 2000 was Inner Range’s flagship system. It was designed by three of the four founders of Inner Range: Doug Frazer, David Baughan, and Alan Winch. First installed in 1989, the system was updated to the Concept 3000 and later the Concept 4000. To migrate your system contact Inner Range on 0845 470 5000 or Visit
