Viking Electronics announces the LRT-4 and LRR-4 work together with a variety of Viking products to provide relay control from up to 400 feet away.
“Gone are the days of drivers hanging out of their windows, struggling to reach the card reader because they’re too far away or so close they smash their side mirror and up their insurance premiums,” says Viking Electronics Engineer Greg Yocom.
The LRR-4 is a four-channel RF receiver with four channels of Wiegand data output. The LRT-4 is a remote control that works with the receiver and features four buttons capable of delivering separate codes. Each push-button on the remote can trigger a different output on the LRR-4 receiver.
The company states when used with a controller, such as Viking model ES-1 or C-4000, the LRR-4 and LRT-4 combo is ideal for activating: strobe lights, door strike/mag lock, loud ringing, alarm signals and similar devices. In addition to the four push-button controls, the LRT-4 remote is also a small key fob that can be scanned just like a corporate badge or door access key fob with built in credentials.
Using the LRR-4 in conjunction with a Viking C-4000 is suitable for many applications, such as a parking garage. For example, if the weather service issues a tornado warning for the area, parking garage security personnel can press button No. 2 on the LRT-4, triggering strobe lights to illuminate routes to a storm shelter.
Pressing button No. 3 can trigger a severe weather announcement over the paging system, and then personnel can scan the LRT-4 on the Viking PRX-1 proximity card reader to gain access to secured emergency resources such as flares, first aid supplies, etc.
Pressing button No. 4 could then trigger a Viking K-202-DVA to place a call to the local authorities, notifying them of an “emergency situation at the parking garage on Main Street. People are present and may need assistance.”
Viking Electronics designs and manufactures more than 500 communication and security products, including VoIP and analog emergency phones, entry systems, paging interfaces, paging amplifiers, mass notification systems, hot line products, and enclosures.
