How it works
You may be familiar with traditional dial-to-open systems where you dial the SIM card number which operates the output relay to open your gate. These require a mobile phone SIM card which must see regular usage to avoid it being barred from the network. This has been a constant problem over the last 10 years of supporting these products. Obviously mobile phone networks do not provide a SIM card designed for this purpose but they do offer a solution...
Our system works differently. We use the latest Internet-of-Things 'IoT' class of eSIM chips which can roam on all major networks throughout Europe. These are the SIMs the networks want you to use in this type of equipment.
The telephone number you dial is not linked to the SIM so each output relay can have it's own number making it possible to open and close a barrier with a number to open and a number to close. You can also operate two barriers with the same unit.
The database of numbers is stored in the cloud on a secure AWS instance instead of on the actual unit which allows for an unlimited numbers of users and advanced control of times and dates to be easily configured. Dialling in results in a secure https connection being made to the remote gate opener unit to tell it to release the barrier.
The portal is regularly maintained giving existing users access to all the latest features throughout the life of the unit.
Dial-in, SMS and Online control is seamless and instant. There is no need to find a suitable SIM card and manage it yourself. Maintenance of the unit is taken care of by us and has mostly been prepaid with the networks for a decade.
3G ends this year (2021) and 2G ends 31st December 2025. You will need a 4G unit after this date. Don't waste your money on 3G; it's over this year throughout Europe.
For European customers, we have connectivity to at least two networks in every country throughout Europe. Please inquire if you would like confirmation of availability on your chosen network.
