ZKAccess announced the availability of its Wireless Bridge kit for ZKAccess RFID and biometric door controllers.
According to the biometrics security firm, the kit provides customers the fastest, easiest and least expensive way to install and manage their ZKAccess door access control systems.
Wireless Bridge is a compact 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi kit designed to allow individual ZKAccess C3 and InBio door controllers to connect with wireless access points up to 300 feet away when the door controllers are installed outdoors. Typical wi-fi ranges up to 150 feet can be expected when ZKAccess door controllers are installed indoors and range boosters are available upon request. The kit includes a PCB board, mounting plate, external antenna and connecting wires and can be quickly and easily installed inside the ZKAccess door controller’s metal enclosure.
The Wireless Bridge can save material cost and time since the installer does not have to run CAT5e/6 cable when connecting ZKAccess door access controllers to the network. And ZKAccess wireless door controllers operate seamlessly with ZKAccess traditional wired door controllers.
“We are very pleased to bring our Wireless Bridge to market,” says Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. “Today, customers mostly care about installation cost/time. Prior to our Wireless Bridge, customers had less than a handful of wireless access control vendors to choose from, which allowed for inflated purchase prices. Now with our Wireless Bridge, ZKAccess dealers currently pay less than $950 for a complete 4-door wireless card access system which also includes the readers, REXs, 50 prox cards and software.”
Earlier this year, ZKAccess CEO Larry Reed and COO Manish Dalal educated attendees at the New Jersey Electronic Security Association (NJESA) Annual Symposium and Expo.on its product capabilities using a demo board with live-working access control panels, readers, door locks, REXs and sensors.
