I found this fascinating.

I used to do training and support for a company that manufactures security systems. We made the boards that the door contacts, PIRs, and the like connect to, but we didn't make peripheral hardware, other than card readers. I enjoyed hearing how the doohickey on the other end of the wire worked

Glad you liked it. Maybe you should do one from the other end as well and we can do competing podcast. ;)

I've been out of that industry for almost 10 years. Not sure I remember enough to talk coherently about it.:)

There was a lot I didn't know in here. I'm looking forward to more!

Any particular type things you guys would like to know about?

I would think that some persons would be interested in knowing how prox readers and cards work. I encounter lots of misconceptions about prox cards, such "they send out a signal all on their ownsome."
