Well Hello 2024

New information for the new year.


From our Staff ID Card Bureau Service, we are now offering a Welsh / English bilingual card printing service. Other languages may be possible. Contact us for further information.


Yesterday, I attended the webinar by Elatec on RFID Authentication and Basics. It is fascinating to gain a further understanding of the basics of RFID use in the many fields that use this technology. This is an ongoing post and update on varying products found on the main website.

I just finished reading:  Elon Musk by Walter Isaacson. Interesting to read into the story and life of such a brilliant entrepreneur.  Of someone who is hugely successful but is also a complex and disturbed individual, at times it seems.

Made some small changes to my product pages already. I will be adding a prompt in my product information to request that purchasers of that product leave a product review.

Small but a start.[2].html


New to the website: Maglocks from STP, we are adding their product range over the next couple of months.

All the relevant brackets and technical information sheets are available on request.





We now have RFID Locking Solutions from PS Locks of Austria on the website. see Security & RFID Locking in the dropdown. 

Also, we have RFID Locks from Lowe & Fitcher. again Security menu, RFID Locking Solutions.

We have been able to link with two new distributors, my first one is 4Gon Solutions Specialising in IT Hardware.

Both are trade-only sites.  Products from both distributors will be added to the website throughout the year. Visit their sites and see if they have the solutions for your project.

My second distributor is Security Trade Products (STP) specialising in Magnetic Locking Solutions (Mag Locks)  

All products from both distributors can be added to the main site upon request. 

Sustanability Verification

Security & Identity Solutions, the company behind Spectrum ID, has been awarded verification from SafeSupplier for demonstrating their ethical, environmental and financial credentials, to help clients assess compliance within their supply chain.

SafeSupplier offers a robust, streamlined, consistent and effective supplier on-boarding and management solution, that demonstrates supplier compliance to regulatory requirements, international standards and industry best practice in the supply chain. The company's application for SafeSupplier verification was driven by the desire to demonstrate the highest standards in health and safety, quality, ethical best practices and responsible growth.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing suppliers who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety, quality, ethical best practice and responsible growth policies in place."

"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Security & Identity Solutions has done. The firm's high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector."
