Universal Gate Access Solution

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Aug 19, 2013

Gates are great for keeping property secure, but they also keep the good guys out. Agencies like Ambulances, Police, and Fire can find themselves stopped cold at gated properties or overhead doors if they do not carry multiple RF openers. A product named Click 2 Enter claims to solve the problem, with equipment already carried by every agency's vehicle: the two-way radio. How does this product work, what are its limitations, how much does it cost? We answer those questions in this note.

SOS makes siren operated controllers to open vehicle gates with a standard YELP signal. Not as secure as Click 2 Enter, but no special equipment is needed for the fire, police and emergency vehicles. As an integrator, I had a municipal customer that installed these at their facilities vehicle gates.

SOS also offers a silent version that looks somewhat similar to Click 2 Enter, but their web page doesn't offer much detail.
