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.

The M3M Max 3 Modem provides dial-up remote site management to the Max 3 and MiniMax 3 access control systems. The Max 3 modem is designed for easy plug-on “stackable” mounting to the first Max 3 module in a system. Power and communications are established with the included wire harnesses that connects easily between the Max 3 Modem and the Max 3 module. Learn More$299.40
The ioProx receiver can be programmed for either Wiegand format, which is compatible with most door controllers on the market, or for Kantech eXtended Secure Format (XSF) which, when used with one of Kantech’s door controllers, provides enhanced security with an additional measure of protection against ID access code duplication. The ioProx receiver is capable of reading from a distance of up to 24.38 m (80 ft) with a power dipole antenna or 12.19 m (40 ft) with a standard antenna. This longer read range is ideal for applications in remote locations where the limited read range of traditional access control is insufficient. Learn More$211.25

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.

When increased wireless communication range is required, the ANT400-REM-I/O+6dB model can up to double the range in the line of sight that it is aimed. This “gain antenna” increases the signal strength by focusing the energy Learn More$239.25

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!
