CARMEL, IN – July 7, 2011 – Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of Schlage contactless smart credentials and readers, announced today that its new GCK400 Wireless Gate Kit leverages existing access control systems to gate entrances while saving thousands of dollars per gate in trenching costs. Because of the expenses in digging trenches and laying cable to their perimeter gates, many companies are not able to use their access cards for parking lots or are forced to use a standalone system at the gates, inhibiting real time access control throughout the facility and grounds.
"Gates are a prime location for wireless systems," explains Sean Leonard, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies portfolio marketing director. "The GCK400 Wireless Gate Kit works in tandem with any access control system to provide up to 4,000 feet of clear line of site access control, eliminating the problems and costs of digging trenches to lay cable."
According to Leonard, with no trenches to dig or wire to pull, a wireless gate access control solution takes just 45 minutes to install versus a day or more with a hardwired system, saving a lot in labor costs and freeing up budget to even further extend the organization’s card access control system.
The kit, which includes the panel interface module (PIM), wireless reader interface, antenna, 12 VDC transformer and grounding, makes installation easy. Once the card is read at the reader, data goes directly in real time to the access control system for a decision on whether to allow entry or not.
The new GCK400 Wireless Gate Kit is available now.
