Step 3:    Build trust, and make hardware more reliable, profitable, and accountable for the companies you

               work with. In short, make lives a little easier.


Step 4:    After 1 million installations, know that you have an industry standard to uphold, as engineers,

               craftsmen, and as a partner. Do not waiver from this singular path, which is perpetual, ongoing,

               and never taken for granted.


Finish:     Confidence has now been installed throughout the access control community.



About Mercury Security

Since its start in 1992, Mercury Security has focused on a distinct manufacturing niche: innovative OEM hardware for the increasingly demanding world of facility security and access control. Authentic Mercury controllers, readers and embedded solutions consistently provide our partners the most reliable and scalable open platforms.


In 2013, Mercury was acquired by ACRE, an international holding company, based in the United States, which owns companies in the global market for electronic security systems. ACRE’s mission is to consolidate the fragmented access control marketplace with emphasis on open standards using Mercury’s robust platform as the de facto standard.


With more than three million panels installed around the world, Mercury has grown to become the controller platform supplier of choice for true access control.
