Remote Control Division (Secured Facilities)
How Safe and Secured is the remote control use in your facility Automatic door, Gate, barrier and even security shutter etc @ (Airport, Seaport, Government building especially supreme court and parliament building, Military camps, schools, campus and even hospital).
Dear Security Manager.
Do you think your building or facilities are safe if you are using the generic remote control supply by your gate contractor or security system integrator, chances your building is not secured.
Generic Remote Control
Most or all generic remote control uses dipswitches inside the remote control to set the ID-Code. These mean that when the building management distributes the remote control to the building key user for gate or barrier control, if for some reason the remote control was misplaced or some user open up the remote control and buy a 3rd party remote control and reset the dipswitches, the new copy remote control will then be able to be used to operate the building gate or barrier automation. This will compromised the security of the building.
Securitex Intelligent Remote Control (I-Key)
In order to counter this security breach Securitex now use the intelligent remote control (I-Key) to solve this issue. The I-Key remote control can be individually control just like the access cardkey use in the building access control system. Every remote control has it own unique ID code, Site Code and even control number to identify which company supply this remote control and to who and what facility use them.
I-key remote as Cardkey for building access control application
The I-Key remote control can even be use like a normal proximity card to be read by the building access control reader. The programming of the I-key remote control to the building access control system can only be done by the building security management because these remote controls are supplied as Security controlled item. In the event there is security breach, example a suspected copy I-key unit was discovered, the security management can engage Securitex to trace the company who supply this remote and to who (Securitex provide this service free even for other supplier who supply I-key).
With the above unique feature this effectively means that if a user decide to bypass the security management and get an extra remote control from 3rd party to be use in these secured building this will not be possible. Assume he / she can locate the same remote control from the 3rd party source, this remote control will not work on this secured premises as the “Site Code” is different. Assume he can get pass the site code issue, he will still need the security management to programmed these new remote control into the building security system before he can use it. In this way the issue of 3rd party remote control is solve.
The Secured building owner and security management can registered this building and site with Securitex so that if anyone from this registered building contacted us for additional I-Key we will check the identity of the person who want to buy this extra remote control and if it is to be use in the Secured registered building we will refer them back to the management.
