Essential Info

The EMX BG-VK3 BlueGuard VK3 Bluetooth Virtual Keypad Wireless Access Control Module turns a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone into a universal controller - letting you switch almost anything ON/OFF from your iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or other Bluetooth enabled device. BlueGuard is activated when a PIN code is keyed into the cell phone within range, triggering the relay output. The possibilities are endless with BlueGuard, and the user capacity unlimited. Use BlueGuard as a virtual keypad to open and close garage doors, activate magnetic locks and gate openers, as a free exit device, or as a key switch on your car or boat - the applications are limitless.

The BG-VK3 BlueGuard feature an adjustable activation pulse period, from 3 t o90 seconds, which allows direct connection to a magnetic door lock. It also has an output toggle feature; connect to BlueGuard and activate output, connect again to deactivate the output. A built-in remote LED status indicator let's you when BlueGuard is active. BlueGuard VK3 does not require any software to be downloaded to your phone, it uses existing Bluetooth communication.

For operation, simply search for Bluetooth devices on your cell phone, select BlueGuard, and enter the PIN. The relay output will activate when the correct PIN is entered. This allows an unlimited number of users to activate BlueGuard (with the same PIN). No grooming is required. BlueGuard's user interface features a secure internal switch to place the unit in the programming mode. During programming, BlueGuard reads the Bluetooth device that is within range and allows editing of the PIN and the BlueGuard's Bluetooth name.

  • More Info

    ARM
    BlueGuard provides an ARM input that can be used to prevent BlueGuard from activating until the ARM input is ON. The ARM input may be connected to a loop detector that will detect the presence of a vehicle. If a vehicle is not present, then BlueGuard is not armed and will not activate even if the phone is in range. In addition, the ARM input could be connected to a manual switch allowing you to disable the BlueGuard manually as required.

    BlueGuard will detect the presence of an authorized phone when it comes into range. The arming loop allows activation of BlueGuard when the authorized phone is in range and a vehicle is on the loop. Using the arming loop will prevent the gate from opening if the owner walks near the gate (within range of BlueGuard). Use of the ARM input is optional; it may be left unconnected when not used.
