The Proxess Bridge unique system is designed for Administrators who require immediate access to information in their system. Not only is this system recommended for those who want information “on demand”, it is also a cost effective way to provide building or campus Lockdown in the event of a building or school emergency.
All Proxess locks are equipped with a Bluetooth (BLE) module which allows Bluetooth communication between the system server and the normally off-line locks. Communication between the server and lock is accomplished through a Bluetooth hub normally installed in the ceiling, which can communicate to locks up to 50 feet away, typically in groups of four to eight locks. The Bluetooth hub acts much like a cell-phone or Proxess mobile programming device to “call up” locks and exchange information to update the access control system or lock down doors.
The system now operates similarly to a full access control system at a fraction of the cost. The Proxess Bridge system can perform functions such as Emergency Lockdown, change time schedules, blacklist a user, update system information, lock or unlock a door, perform a lock audit, update firmware and numerous other functions on command. Proxess’ unique, patent-pending BLE system is also power efficient, extending lock battery life compared to competitive wifi systems.
