Neil Thomas, National Sales Manager at Videx, said: “Systems can be installed in a very short space of time, and cost effectively, requiring only the mounting of the entrance panel, the connection to a power supply, antenna and gate or door releasing device. There is no need for any cabling to telephone points as the system utilises the existing mobile network infrastructure, allowing calls to be made to anywhere in the world. Our new system also comes with a customisable LCD display, back lit keypad for poor lighting conditions and an event log that can record events that can be viewed using PC software.”
Programming and maintenance of the user’s details, access control codes and fobs can all be controlled via SMS text messages, via the entrance panel using the keypad and display, and via a PC using either a USB or RS485 connection.
The GSM system’s flexibility allows changes to be made remotely without the need to revisit the site. Dry contact relay output, additional switched 0V output, push to exit button input, trade time clock input and auxiliary inputs are also all available.
