Founded with Vision
We were founded in 1981 to bring to market the first secure keypad. Our idea was to "scramble" the digits on a telephone-like keypad so they came up in a different position every time. The resulting product became the ScramblePad®, for which we were awarded a patent. The ScramblePad was quickly embraced by government intelligence agencies for its high security features.
Scrambling digit positions and viewing restrictors prevent stolen codes.
A Long Term Investment
Our hardware is proven for its reliability, flexibility and long life cycle. Our software excels in ease of install, ease of use, and broad feature set. It wins industry awards to prove it. For most applications, a Hirsch system solution results in the lowest total installed cost, as well as the lowest life cycle cost.
The Hirsch product line is as solid as it looks—award-winning, high security,
easy to install and use, and most important of all, reliable.
All Hirsch Identive are “burned in” to ensure reliability.
Then, we factory assemble all the components and test the entire unit for proper operation before shipping. This results in an MTBF of 100 years for our controllers. Even though Hirsch uses “just in time” manufacturing processes, we typically maintain ample inventory for prompt shipments from stock.
Rigorous testing ensures each unit meets or
exceeds Hirsch's high quality standards.
Hirsch’s on-site warehouse prides itself
on meeting shipment commitments, including
Our Velocity software is designed from the bottom up around the firmware in our controllers and is extensively tested in factory and field settings to ensure performance, reliability, and system integrity. We design forward-compatibility into our systems so our customers will find expansion and modernization to be simple and economical.
