WatchNET Access Controllers are designed to be self-contained controllers, ideally suited for small and medium sized solutions. For enterprise solutions, however, Access Controllers are often connected to servers. Did you know there are three ways of connecting controllers to servers?

1) When using RS232/485 connection, the server must have a serial port, or if none a RS485 converter can be used to convert the serial connection into USB which is suitable for any server computer that has USB ports, this is typically used if the site has no network connections available.

2) A TCP/IP (Ethernet) connection is available in all access control panels to connect to a LAN network. This will connect the panel to the server and to additional modules such as the WatchNET input and output board or WatchNET elevator controller. Using the Ethernet port simplifies installation as the WatchNET software will be able to search for all access control panels and WatchNET security devices that are connected to the network.

3) WatchNET Access Control has a module for wireless connectivity to the server, the WAA WLS 485 wireless transmitter can be used in areas where cabling is impossible, providing a range up to a maximum of 1000 meters of distance between an Access Controller and the server. The system functionality remains the same whether it is hooked up using cables or by wireless connectivity.
