Bibliotheca Tattle-Tape™ Gate

Tattle-Tape Gate

Minitex now offers bibliotheca Tattle-Tape™ gates, including a Special Discounted Introductory Offer.

This security system can blend nicely with your library décor while keeping your collection entirely secure using the latest DSP technology. Designed for use with Tattle-Tape™ Security Strips, this system detects all EM strips  in any orientation. Along with a selection of built-in LED alarm light colors to choose from, it also features interchangeable graphic panels and is completely safe for all magnetic media. 

Reduce unwanted alarms - The Tattle-Tape™ gate can detect when an activated strip is leaving the library, significantly reducing false alarms at the gate when people enter. With multiple pedestals used to cover a larger entrance-way, the alarm lights on the gates also identify which aisle caused the alarm, helping staff locate items that triggered the alarm faster. 
Integrated with libraryConnect™ - Staff can remotely access libraryConnect™ for in-depth statistics and configuration options. This allows staff to remotely upgrade firmware, run monthly reports and change the alarm colors and patterns. 
Genuine Tattle-Tape™ technology - With powerful algorithms, the genuine Tattle-Tape™ technology can distinguish between common metal items and any EM strip to yield the most accurate results. This means less false alarms and fewer inconveniences for both users and staff. 
Integrated, visible people counter The on-board bi-directional people counter accurately counts the number of people entering and leaving the library. This information is transferred  to libraryConnect™ as well as the control box, which has a convenient display for quick access to live stats. 
Flexible configuration and installation - Simple set-up and maintenance allows our trained technicians to cause little disruption to your library and staff can quickly troubleshoot concerns with our dedicated phone support teams. 

If you’re ordering from an office or library supply company you are paying way too much!
