In August 2014, the stunning new health school in Thisted, West Denmark was ready to welcome a new set of students. No detail is left to chance in the architectural structure – even the 39 access control readers installed by Dan Group Alarm, Karl Mikkelsen are incorporated into the building’s design.

Karl Mikkelsen has worked with readers from Conlan since the mid 90ies and estimates a count of 12-1300 readers installed.

In Thisted, we have installed the M1200 and CM 1200 readers from Conlan – that is mifare readers with and without keypads. To manage access to the building, we have installed the NOX system,

says Karl.


The criteria for selecting a security system for the health school were largely focused on usability for employees at the school.

I often work with the NOX system, because the user interface is so intuitive. You don’t need to be a technician to operate it. And Conlan’s readers work seamlessly with the system. This is one of the reasons I chose them for this job.


However, usability was not the only factor determining the best solution in Thisted.

Conlan’s new Mykey line has a clean and modern design. This is something the end users really value.

More options with mifare

Additionally, the mifare readers offer varied functionality.

The mifare technology lets you combine a number of parameters. For instance, you can enter a building, pay at the cafeteria and take out library books, all via the same mifare card. I believe this will become even more popular in the future.
