Using New Cellular Technology To Reduce Cost, Increase Control.

Topic: Using NEW cellular technology to reduce cost and increase control
How access control and monitoring can go wireless, dependably and inexpensively

Overview: In this economy budgets are tight but access control and monitoring needs are increasing. In some cases, this increasing need is being driven by regulatory requirements affecting airports and the energy industry. Running wires is limiting, costly and unnecessary and control panels can be expensive and complex. Now you can use the Internet combined with cellular technology to provide access control and monitoring virtually anywhere at a lower cost.

In this Webcast, several case studies will be discussed where wiring presented costly challenges and how cellular technology was used to provide greater benefits at a lower cost than traditional systems.

Examples addressed will include:

  • Airport perimeters and runway access control points.
  • School facilities and perimeters.
  • Oil and gas exploration/ production and distribution facilities.
  • Perimeter intrusion monitoring.
  • Farms, ranches and hunting leases.
  • Trucking yards.
  • Self storage facilities.

In addition to being used as an alternative to traditional wired systems, cellular technology can be used to provide access control where only padlocks or stand-alone systems were feasible before.

While this approach offers cost savings to end-users, system integrators can benefit from special programs designed to increase revenue.
