Visitor buttons allow visitors etc. who do not have a remote control to open the gate. They are usually mounted on a post, rail, wall etc. on either side of the gate and well clear of the gate so that they can be operated from the window of a vehicle.
There are three types of visitor buttons:
- Hard Wired Push Button
- Wireless Push Button
- Wireless Keypad with PIN number
Hard Wired Visitor Button
This button requires a cable to be run from the button to the control box.
Wireless Visitor Button
This button consists of a weather proof button mounted on a small box with wireless transmitter that does not require any cabling to the control box. It can be mounted on any surface or post etc. that is within radio range (50 - 100mtrs) of the control box.
Keypad with PIN Number
The Wirless Keypad requires no cabling and can be mounted in a position the same as the Wireless Visitor Button. It allows programming of different PIN numbers (up to 20 PIN numbers) for selected people to use and open the gate.
Powder Coated Visitor Button Cover
This cover can be mounted on any surface including the metal visitor post. It is designed to provide mechanical and weather protection for all visitor buttons.
Metal Visitor Post
A 1600mm metal post, pre-drilled wih pole cap, that can be concreted into the ground and used to mount all visitor buttons.
Longer poles are also available that have two push buttons, one for large vehicles that require a higher push button/keypad such as busses and trucks, and one mounted at normal height for cars and 4WD's etc.
Remote Control Options
Additional Remote Controls
Two remote controls are included in every kit, however additional remotes can be added for additional family, friends, work colleagues etc.
For added security a button on the remote can be programmed to disable all remotes and visitor buttons from opening the gate. This may be useful if you do not want people entering your property when you leave for the day/week or go to bed at night.
A button on your remote control can be programmed to open the gate and gate stays open (auto close disabled). Gate can then be closed with the Open/Close button.
Photo Electric Sensor
The Photo Electric Sensor is used to delay the auto gate close timer from timing out to close the gate. This may be necessary where large vehicles use the gate and require the gate to remain open for a longer period.
When a vehicle breaks the PE sensor it will delay the automatic timer from timing out and closing the gate.
The PE Sensor is of industrial quality and is rated at IP67 for outdoor use.
Vehicle Loops (single or double) can be placed in the driveway to automatically open the gate when a vehicle drives over the loop. A single vehicle loop can be placed on one side only or a double loop can be installed on both sides.
If an alarm is fitted to the gate to indicate the gate is opening, it will also sound the alarm if the gate is left open and a vehicle passes through.
Gate Open Alarm
The Gate Alarm will sound an alarm in the house/shed etc. to indicate that the gate is opening.
If an alarm is fitted to the gate to indicate the gate is opening, it will also sound the alarm if the gate is left open and a vehicle passes through when a PE Sensor or Vehicle Loop is installed.
The alarm also provides feedback when a normal remote, mid range remote or long range remote is used to open/close, lock/unlock the gate.
The Alarm is radio controlled and has various ranges of up to 5KM, depending on environment and installation.
Long Distance Remotes
Long distance remote controls (up to 5 km) can be installed to control the gate opening/closing, gate lock, gate stay open, etc.
If a Time Clock is fitted, the clock will open and close the gate at times programmed into the time clock, or alternately the time clock can be used to perform other functions such as lock/unlock the gate at different times etc.
Flashing Strobe Light
The Flashing Strobe Light will start to flash 5 seconds before the gate is about to close if in AUTO close mode. It will remain flashing until gate closes.
The Flashing light will also indicate that the gate has been locked, or gate is locked and an attempt has been made to open the gate.
GSM units can be installed to open the gate from a mobile phone or land line from anywhere in the world.
Up to 999 guest phone numbers can be programmed to the GSM so that the gate will open when a guest phones the gate, or alternatively the GSM can be programmed to open when anyone dials the gate.
All calls to open the gate are free calls
Gate LED Light
A gate LED light can be installed to light up the gate/driveway etc. at night when the gate opens or alternatively, come on at dusk and stay on for a predertermined amount of time
