Re: Checkpoint security system Ken Siegert 22 Oct 2002 18:46 UTC


I asked our Circulation Coordinator to comment on your e-mail.  Here
is her response:

"It's a lot better than our old security system (3M model from the
80's).  We had a problem with the alarm not working when walking
through with a sensitized book AND sounding when there was nobody
around.  We called the company and someone came out to fix it.  Our
electrical box would get too warm and "misfire".  Other than that one
incident, the system works fine."

Hope this helps!
