Essential Info

The EMX BG-FE BlueGuard FE Bluetooth Free Entry Wireless Access Control Module works by creating a "bond" between your Bluetooth enabled device and BlueGuard. When you enter into the Bluetooth wireless range with your bonded iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or other Bluetooth enabled device, BlueGuard will detect it and activate its output. You can use up to 10 different Bluetooth-enabled device as a hands-free controller to open and close a wide variety things. The BlueGuard FE is not designed for use in applications where a single button is used to open, stop, or reverse a door, (push to open, push to stop and push to close) such as a residential garage doors. Outside of this format the application are limitless. It is similar in function or RFID systems, with a few major advantages:
• The wireless range is up to 10 meters (33 feet), instead of RFID range of 4 inches
• When setup with an over head door station it prevents unwanted openings of the door
• It is built into your Bluetooth device, so there is no need to carry around an RFID card
• It is used in a hands-free fashion, simply by carrying your Bluetooth device, you can trigger the access control system

When set to PRESENCE mode the output will remain active as long as the Bluetooth device is within range. When set to PULSE mode, the output will activate for 1 second, then deactivate. In PULSE mode, the Bluetooth device must leave the range of the BlueGuard for a minimum of 60 seconds before it can reactivate the BlueGuard

The BlueGuard housing is durable PVC, watertight and designed for outdoor use. Bluetooth devices have a specified range of 10 meters (33 feet) 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.

    I haven't really used this device as it is described. But understanding what it is, and how it works, It's fantastic. absolutely incredible. the opportunities with this device are endless. I currently have it set up on my motorcycle as somewhat of a keyless start system. I have it setup with a very standard automotive relay to switch the whole system on. basically when I walk up to my bike with my phone in my pocket, the whole system receives power and I simply press the start button to turn over the engine. the only issues I have, are that my iPhone 5s doesn't recognize it as connected. not ever an issue with connectivity and that the distance at which it reads is not adjustable. It currently reads at about 40ft. I've added a small switch to the system so that it doesn't just turn on when I walk by to get to my car. or when I'm sitting on a patio having a burger. In the future I plan to add this device to my car to unlock the doors and turn on the ignition. thanks for such great product EMX!
