AL-IM2-80211 - Networx Version 2 Gateway by Alarm Lock
The Trilogy Networx AL Generation Gateway, interfaces Networx locks with a PC network via a hardware Ethernet connection. It is very similar in function to the original hardwired Networx Gateway Modules, but is enhanced with additional extended potential range, supporting up to seven (7) Expanders (model AL-IME2-EXP Expanders).
Similar to the AL-IME2 model, this 802.11 Gateway Module includes a bi-directional radio, and interfaces Networx locks with a PC network with hardwire Ethernet and wireless 802.11. It is very similar in function to the original 802.11 Networx Gateway Modules, but is enhanced with additional extended potential range, supporting up to seven (7) Expanders (model AL-IME2-EXP Expanders). Each Expander can extend the AL-IM2-80211 Gateway's coverage area by approximately 100 feet.
Features and Benefits:
- Version 2 model virtually same as the original "version 1" Gateways, buth with added ability to expand your Networx lock system with up to 7 Expanders (AL-IME2-EXP).
