In a typical scenario a vehicle approaches the entrance gate and is recognized by a Proximity Loop Detector imbedded in the driveway
In a typical scenario a vehicle approaches the entrance gate and is recognized by a Proximity Loop Detector imbedded in the driveway. At this time the SmartPass RF Reader is energized. After capturing the Radio Frequency Identification Code (RF ID) of the vehicle's RF tag, the System searches the Vehicle File for the car to which the tag has been assigned. Upon finding a valid vehicle record, the gate operator is activated, allowing the vehicle to pass. The vehicle's identification number and time and date of passage will be recorded in the database. history file. Vehicle authorization may be assigned or revoked at any time by authorized personnel. If at any time, the System is unable to validate the RF ID with an authorized vehicle, the gate will not open and an error message will be posted to the System's Error Log, providing system managers with a record of attempted unauthorized entries. Each vehicle transaction will cause a one-line record to print on the office printer. This record typically consists of Tag Number, Vehicle I.D. and Time and Date of passage. If necessary, the elapsed time in-yard may be calculated, printed and stored in the history file.
Departure may be either free, using Proximity Loop Detectors to activate the Gate Operator, or, to provide the greatest protection and security, controlled, using another SmartPass RF Reader. Controlled entrance and departure provide the system manager with a detailed record of when each vehicle entered and exited, and, if appropriate, by which gate. If desired, RF ID Tags may be removed from parked vehicles, ensuring that they cannot be taken from the facility without authorization. In residential applications this provides the tenant with an even more enhanced sense of security.
