VERTEX INDUSTRIES RECEIVES ORDER FOR ITS ACCESS CONTROL/ATTENDANCE
 SYSTEMS FOR 29 NEW YORK CITY HIGH SCHOOLS
 CLIFTON, N.J., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertex Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: VETX) has received an order for its Access Control/Attendance System for 29 New York City high schools, James Q. Maloy, chairman and president of Vertex, announced today.
 Maloy noted that the contract, with a high six-figure dollar value, brings the total number of systems ordered to date by New York City to 45 high schools out of a total of 115 high schools. The order includes the application software for these schools as well as the balance of New York City high schools. In addition, Vertex announced that a similar system has been installed in one Chicago high school.
 Said Maloy: "We are seeing increased interest in our school Access Control/Attendance System, not only in New York City high schools where there have been a number of recent shootings, but in other cities across the nation where school security has become a major concern in the wake of recent violence. There is a need in today's public school systems to utilize state-of-the-art technology in an effort to provide increased safety for students and teachers alike. In addition, the Access Control/Attendance System automatically records student attendance, thereby alleviating teachers of this manual, time-consuming task."
 The Vertex school Access Control/Attendance System utilizes a resident computer data base of valid student identification numbers whereby access control to a facility can be maintained by validation of each and every student and/or staff entering the school, lunchroom, gym, or classroom. Invalid badges can be flagged and captured by the badge reader while both a visual and audible alarm are activated.
 The individual ID badge contains a copy-protected encrypted Bar Code, additional pertinent individual data, and a color photograph on a laminated credit-card size card for ease of placement in a wallet. The data base is extensive and contains biographical data on each student which can be updated to accommodate changing data and conditions.
 Vertex Industries, organized in 1974, manufactures complete Data Collection Systems which include Bar Code Scanners, Portable and Fixed Data Collection Terminals, Optical Readers, Label Generators, Transaction Processors, Multiplexers and Data Collection Software, used mainly in factories, warehouses, offices, hospitals and transportation. In addition to Bar Code products, Vertex is a major supplier of Magnetic Stripe technology.
