Videx has added new features and functionality to its GSMPRO intercom system that provides users with much greater freedom and security.
The GSMPRO, which is now expandable to an eight-door access control system, enables people to answer calls to their front door or gate from their mobile phone or landline.
It’s available with an integrated backlit coded keypad, with up to 400 access codes and 32 temporary codes. This can be programmed to expire after a number of hours, to meet specific access control needs.
Codes can also be programmed via PC software and remotely via SMS for greater flexibility. Videx have recently launched an app for both Android and iOS to simplify the process of sending SMS messages.
Videx took into account the special requests from customers and added specific features allowing the GSM range to be used on installations with complex requirements.
There are several other programming commands included making the system easy to set up and simple to use. For example, it is now possible to program all an apartment’s telephone numbers in a single SMS message and program up to five dials to open numbers in one SMS.
Neil Thomas, National Sales Manager at Videx UK, said: “Our new generation GSMPRO now boasts many more features which makes it an ideal access control choice for a greater range of businesses and organisations. For example, it now has free access time bands enabling users to set up to 10 time periods where the entrance is held open, for specific hours of the day and on specific days of the week, which makes it perfect for housing associations, warehouses, and offices. It’s also now an eight-door access control system, with the ability to add up to seven extra keypad or proximity access entrances. Additional entrances connect back to the GSMPRO via an RS485 bus using standard CAT5 cable.
“A great new feature is that the system now carries a new remote event log that can be accessed online, allowing events to be viewed in real time, on the move via a phone, tablet/laptop. It's a great security feature because it’s where a record is kept of calls, gate/door openings and much more. What’s also useful is that alerts can be programmed where an email will be sent should that alert be triggered. For example, if the gate or door is opened out of normal hours - any unusual activity is flagged.”
