Recommended Applications of TimeTec BLE-2, Bluetooth Access Controller
FingerTec News | 04/12/2020
 
TimeTec BLE-2 is a Bluetooth device that caters for different ultra-modern access control requirements encompassing cloud solutions. It requires no cabling, and it can be easily combined with different TimeTec cloud solutions and Apps, hardware and accessories, as a tool to unlock doors, access to turnstiles and parking barriers, and more.

Check out the different scenarios to best use TimeTec BLE-2.
1. Gated & Guarded Residential Housing Estate
BLE-2 as an automated visitor cars’ entry and exit control
 
To facilitate the workflow of security guards.
Guards will no longer need to press the push button to open the barrier gate after registering a visitor. With BLE-2, the guards will only have to register the visitors via the i-Vizit system and the boom-gate/barrier gate would automatically be raised, allowing the visitor to access an area.

By having BLE-2, the management can increase the security level by locking the push-button from guards access. This restriction will prevent guards from using the button to open the barrier gate manually to unsolicited visitors. This way, the guards will be compelled to register visitors before allowing them to enter the compound.
