qkGate uses the ISM 2.4 mHz radio in your smart phone to automatically open your gate when you arrive.
Authorizing access is easy and free; you can give your unique access code to as many people as you like. It is easy and free to change your gate access code by customizing the qkGate configuration.
This means that there is no need to alight from your transport to press any buttons in order to activate the gate opening automation.
Importantly, your privacy is assured because qkGate does not connect to the Internet. This means qkGate does not store, forward or process your personal data and it does not keep logs or log files. The qkGate device does not use subscriptions, user accounts or Cloud Services to store and manage your configuration. The open and close function of qkGate is completely stand alone.
What does all mean?
It means that you can get rid of your PIN Pads, FOBs and Zappers
It also means that qkGate is a cost effective solution instead of GSM diallers at the gate which need to have an active SIM Card installed. The diallers also need to have a Voice Contract or a Pre-Pay mobile subscription to receive calls and SMS messages. As SIM cards expire and get cancelled by the Mobile Network Operator the SIM has to be replaced. qkGate does not use the GSM mobile network so no SIM Cards and no Voice/pre-pay contract to worry about.
If you have a GSM dialler, you may have heard about that the ongoing deployment of the new 4G (LTE) & 5G mobile networks is triggering the retirement of 2G and 3G networks and this means that the 2G/3G GSM diallers at the gate will stop working eventually. The hardware will have to be replaced, and the SIM card upgraded to 4G/5G. If you choose an IoT SIM you will also have to install a User Profile and Subscription into a Cloud Service….. none of this applies if you purchase the qkGate solution.
