Communication interfaces are an important part of access systems, of every kind. This category is dedicated to the machine-to-machine communication devices that allow your door control systems to function properly. This can include interface communications from a control panel to a computer, external power supply, modem, or Ethernet gateway—connecting your systems over the Internet. Giving your systems this kind of communication is not only standard, but it is the best way to increase your systems security when breached. Please browse our selection and find the parts that are right for you.

Programming an IntelliProx unit is accomplished using the HPP-22 Hand-Held Remote Programmer. The HPP-22 has the appearance of a TV remote control, but has a different principle of operation. It is a mini-transmitter using a radio frequency (RF) rather than an infrared signal to transmit data. Unlike a television remote control (that requires a direct line-of-sight between the infrared transmitter in the remote and the infrared receiver in the television) the HPP-22 should be held parallel to the proximity antenna. Hold the HPP-22 within the range of the proximity antenna (approximately 1-foot) and press the appropriate button to send a command. Allow about 0.5 seconds for a response from the reader Learn More$146.25
Device networking is what powers M2M (machine to machine) communication. The UDS family of external device servers enables users to connect, manage and control just about any piece of equipment with a serial port from virtually anywhere over Ethernet or the Internet. With the UDS1100, virtually any piece of equipment can be added to an Ethernet network in a matter of minutes! This single-port external device server is a quick, simple and inexpensive way to bring the advantages of remote management to equipment not currently connected to a network. Learn More$178.13
The Net2 nano range of access control units uses Paxton Access" Net2Air wireless technology to communicate with the Net2 software. The Net2Air USB bridge provides the wireless communication link between the PC running Net2 software and Net2 nano control units. We recommend the use of the Net2Air site surveyor kit for checking signal strength around a site prior to installation. Learn More$136.50
The Schlage ANT400-REM optional remote antennas are designed for use with the AD-400 Series devices. They increase installation flexibility of wireless products, extend the range of wireless communication in certain directions and expand the range of applications of AD-Series solution. A remote antenna is used to improve signal communication strength for wireless communications through an obstruction. A typical application would be when a remote device down a hallway requires a few extra feet of signal strength to reach the PIM400 which is sometimes located around a corner or behind a wire mesh or thick brick construction material.

What is M2M?
The concept of m2m, or machine to machine communication, is simply how your access system communicates. It concerns technologies that can provide both wired and wireless communication routes from one device to the other. It can transmit personal data such as employee ID for prox card readers, as well as keycards and other keyless entry and electronic lock information. This can allow you to have an outside, editable database of information that gives you advanced control over your entryway access.
In wired technology, machine to machine interface communications promotes technology like Ethernet cables, which can ultimately benefit a wireless Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, wireless m2m can be beneficial insofar as companies that don’t already have a built in wired structure can easily adapt to the new implementation.
Gateway Interface Module
A gateway interface module is optimal for multi-door functions, as it provides a central unit for which to control all of your entryways at once, rather than programming each on individually.
Our Trilogy Networx communicate through Ethernet or Wi-Fi, and give you the advanced accessibility of programming and storage—providing all of the standard functionality that comes with a standalone unit.
USB interface communication modules, such as Alarm Lock’s AL-PCI2U, allow you to connect with your PC, and transfer data across multiple platforms. This can provide you with multi-function use in your keypad locks as well as control from a notebook or desktop PC. They provide a large amount of memory to match your systems needs, and help to give you unified access control.
Hand Held Programmer
A hand held programmer can be useful because then you have the added freedom of mobility. Unlike a standard television remote, the hand held programmers, like the Keri Systems HPP-22, uses radio frequencies, so that you do not need a direct line of sight. Which means that you can have control where you need it, maintaining the essential purpose of the remote access software.
For all of our communication interface products, we encourage our customers with specific needs to take advantage of our search tools. Just enter the specific product that you need, and you should find a vast inventory waiting for you of exactly what replacement or new part you want. If it’s not available, please contact one of our service representatives and we will get it to you as fast as possible. Thanks for choosing Buy Access!
