Many installers of Kantech access control solutions will be pleased to see that EntraPass 7.10 extends the advantages of the EntraPass Go Install app to installation engineers who use Android devices. They can now configure Kantech door controllers with just one touch on a mobile device.

It also allows installers to store pictures and notes which will help with subsequent visits.
