Effectively, the access control
business, whether for a residential building or an office building,
comes to be an application that requires a high level of
reliability. Guests are not always those who might come back some
other time. Deliveries that require a signature such as a judicial
notice, or others that residents are expressly waiting for because
of their criticality, must find means of proper notification on the
spot. As prone to interference of all kinds as the wireless is, it
is not able to optimally and dependably secure such kinds of service.
Unhappy tenants move out, which you want to avoid as a building
The arrangement explained above can always
be used in any building. It does not require the tenants' phone lines
to actually have dial tone or telephone service. The resident's line
can be completely vacant. What the system needs is only the presence
of the physical wire to tie into.
What if the building's phone lines are
defective or malfunctioning, you say. Well, you can have a dedicated
service line for the Controller instead, a phone line that you get
from the local phone company just for your door entry service. That
single line will be tied to the Controller in a snap. With that
arrangement the Controller will channel the calls to every tenant to
their pre-registered phone number in the system. That way from their
cell phones they will communicate with their guests and eventually
hit a key on the phone to grant access if they so desire. You should
be aware though that this arrangement, unlike the previous one
discussed, entails a monthly fee from the local phone company for
that subscriber line, as they do for any subscriber line.
You use the above arrangement if for
any reason you absolutely must have a wireless system that can
reach residents cellphones, instead of landline phones, or if you
must have video capability as well for screening guests on
smartphone displays. You must however provide WiFi connectivity
or a LAN connectivity with internet access, generally available thru
the Admistrative office, to carry out the service. Residents will be
able to communicate via audio-video exchange with entry guests
whether they are at home or away, as long as their smartphones are
under cellular coverage. Simultaneous audio-video exchange will
depend on the smartphone platform, generally available with Android
phones. With other platforms, may be one channel at a time.
The built-in video capability of the
System is able to integrate with our
Video Surveillance Systems for monitoring a whole array of
standalone cameras throughout the property, i.e. surveillance
cameras in a parking area.
For a flexible wire-free or wireless system for entry access control of your multi-unit building,
this system will deliver on every bit of expectation and demand.
