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

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.
