Long-Range Wireless: Multi-Mile Wireless Access Control and Security Devices
For security and access control dealers there are times when sales are lost simply because a customer doesn’t have the budget to pay for the costly installation required to implement a wired system. Or the customer may not be able to run wires in buildings with historical significance, or across paved areas outdoors.
For pre-existing construction the installation of security and access control devices at building and property entry points can be a challenge. Trenching for outside cabling and routing cable through walls and ceilings of buildings is both messy and expensive.
The use of long-range wireless access control and security devices make installation much easier and therefore much less expensive to install. Using these wireless devices, access problems can be quickly solved in as little as a single day. Installation consists of locating the proper location for a device, mounting it on a pole or wall, and providing power either via an electrical outlet, batteries, or solar power. These devices consist of wireless base station intercoms and handheld two way radios, wireless call boxes with remote gate opening and keypad capability, long distance motion and vehicle proximity sensors, as well as wireless public address and remote switch monitoring devices.
