    With AmeriSys, the transition from one or several different legacy systems can be done in a relatively painfree fashion. We have already thought out and completed such transitions and we have the equipment that knows how to make it simple and easy, taking care of complexities and diffusing the situation.

    With AmeriSys, all you have to do is simply replace the cards and readers. AmeriSys has cloners that mirror the old cards' information to the new cards. When the new cards are presented to the AmeriSys readers, the new readers will emulate the old reader and your access controller will not even notice the changeover.

    You can even integrate many different cards, from many different legacy systems into a single AmeriSys card!

    This makes the upgrade to higher security significantly easier to manage and simpler to effect. You may decide to replace all your readers at once and eliminate the old legacy cards when you issue the new cards or, you may decide to gradually replace the readers and leave both the old and the new cards in circulation.

    The cloner automatically teaches the new cards and readers to behave like the ones they replace. Different manufacturers, different bit lengths, etc. Who cares! AmeriSys products take care of all that for you. Your Wiegand access controller doesn't notice the changeover. You avoid rebuilding controller databases. With AmeriSys, the changeover is quick, simple and painless.

    With AmeriSys, we want you to be in control of the upgrade. With other products, you may find the upgrade is in control of you...

    Over a two-year period, the State of New Jersey gradually replaced all its public building access control systems with such readers. The transition was completed in a smooth, methodical, systematic, well-regulated, friendly fashion and now they enjoy the results of a single card system that is smart, flexible, expandable and offers multi-application support.
