Norbain offers new Bluetooth access from SSP


Norbain is now offering the latest addition to SSP’s range; the DG800-BT Bluetooth access controller, designed for use on gated entrances and doors of offices, warehouses, factories, and domestic properties. It provides a weatherproof standalone access control solution that allows pre-authorised users to gain access with the convenience of using their Smartphone, in addition to PIN-code entry and proximity card/fob entry methods.

Up to 200 users can be enrolled into the DG800-BT by a single administrator who controls the access permissions for all users. Provided the administrator’s Smartphone is within the Bluetooth range of the DG800-BT (up to 50m) the administrator has full admin control and can add users, delete users, view user-data, grant user-access for specific dates or time periods, change any user’s PIN code, and view an activity log of usage (last 1,000 events).

The Smartphone App (compatible with Android 5.0 and above and iOS 9.0 and above) enables the DG800-BT to be triggered manually but also has a selectable ‘auto-mode’ which allows it to be automatically triggered when the Smartphone is within a pre-selected range. The built-in proximity reader accepts EM 125kHz cards or fobs and has a read-range of up to 5cm. Entry PIN-codes for keypad access can have a length of 4 to 8 digits. It has one volt-free relay output (single-pole double-throw) enabling the control of fail-safe and fail-secure locks, garage doors, gates, barriers, lights, alarms, etc. Other features of the DG800-BT include a back-lit keypad, tamper alarm and buzzer (85dB), and IP55 rating.

A typical door set up with a magnetic lock would comprise a DG800-BT, maglock, brackets, power supply, exit button, and a break glass unit. SSP’s PSU3A-12(B) power supply provides a suitable 12Vdc output for powering the DG800-BT, plus the connected locking products (e.g. maglock, electric release, solenoid bolt). When looking to install the DG800-BT outside, such as on a gate, the SSP range also includes weatherproof maglocks (e.g. EXM12-24). SSP has a large selection of complementary products in their range, including a similar product to the DG800-BT, called Easiprox-BT, but without the keypad and PIN-code features
