Essential Info

The EMX BG-VK1 BlueGuard VK13 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 VK1 enables access control by providing an output in the form of relay contacts that activate when a Bluetooth enabled cell phone finds BlueGuard and the correct PIN is entered. Authorization is confirmed by verification of the cell phones unique Bluetooth ID. The BlueGuard contacts may be connected to a gate operator or other external device to allow activation.

The BlueGuard VK1 user interface features a secure, magnetically activated switch to place the unit in the set-up mode. During set-up BlueGuard reads Bluetooth devices that are within range and allows the user to select bonding using the cell phone’s keypad by entering a unique PIN. The PIN prevents unauthorized users from accessing the control functions or bonding with the unit.

The BlueGuard VK1 housing is durable PVC, watertight and designed for outdoor or indoor use. Bluetooth devices have a specified range of 33ft. (10 meters) in open air. This range may be reduced by obstructions. It is recommended that BlueGuard be mounted in a secure location that is not easily accessed to prevent tampering or damage.

    ARM input (optional)
    The ARM input provides a means to prevent the BlueGuard from activating its output. This feature may be
    useful when used with a vehicle loop detector, allowing the BlueGuard to activate its output only when a
    vehicle is present. Alternatively, a switch may be used to disable BlueGuard. When the ARM input is
    connected to the ARM common the BlueGuard is disabled (connect to the loop detector relay N.O and
    common contacts). Leave this connection disconnected if not used.
