How centurion systems gete motor can help make the holiday more secure
With travel restrictions lifted or at least relaxed in most parts of the world – just in time for the holidays – we won’t blame you if you’re unable to resist the siren charms of a getaway following what has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging years in recent history.
The time has finally come to break free from the cabin fever that’s been our fate for most of 2020 and enjoy this beautiful world with a renewed sense of wonder.
In the words of legendary Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, “happiness consists of living each day as if it were the first day of your honeymoon and the last day of your vacation.
Or, as some anonymous sage quipped, “I want to vacation so long, I forget all my passwords”.
So let’s hit the road and leave all our worries behind!
Sounds pretty idyllic, right? But, in reality, going away for the holidays isn’t quite as simple as packing the trunk and popping in your favourite road trip mix tape, especially when it comes to security concerns.
Whether we like it or not, there are those unsavoury individuals who engage in some decidedly un-festive festive season filching, and crime rates tend to soar over the holidays as many homes are left unoccupied.
As the access automation industry leader, Centurion Systems produces technologically-advanced solutions that are designed to provide users with the highest level of security, even if they’re not home.
Our gate motors offer a number of high-security features, delivering complete peace of mind for the holidays and year-round.
Here are three ways that CENTURION gate motors can help make the holidays more secure for you:
Holiday Lockout, native to our D-Series range of gate motors including the D5-Evo, allows you to electronically “lock” the gate motor so that only the remote control that invoked the function is able to use the system, preventing unauthorised access while you’re away.
Closely related to Holiday Lockout Mode, time-barring will make your life easier by adding temporal intelligence.
Using the onboard ChronoGuard timer technology (a world first) found on all D-Series gate motors, you will be able to set up “time windows” during which the selected input(s), for example remote controls, will be disabled. For example, you can set it up so that remote controls are disabled from the moment that you leave on vacation, and then automatically re-enabled upon your return.
This unique feature set works in tandem with the gate’s infrared safety beams to trigger an alarm if the beams are interrupted, or remain interrupted for a user-defined period of time.
The output can be connected to a sound bomb to deter would-be intruders, or to alert neighbours of activity at your gate.
Unleash the Power of the ULTRA Range
G-remote the power of UTRA range
From learning a new language to ordering food, this is Generation App. Always dreamed of playing the guitar? There’s an app for that. Have ambitions of becoming a pro-coder? Your smartphone can make it happen (or should that be APPen?).
Many consider the built-in version of the basic arcade game “Snake”, developed for the Nokia 6110 in 1997, to be the very first mobile app and, today, some 1.85 million mobile applications exist to fill virtually every niche and satisfy virtually every need.
Thanks to the power of the Internet and mobile-based technology, we can all be professional photographers, bloggers and artists.
Ranging from the relatively asinine to the highly complex and intricate, apps have certainly changed how we interact with the world around us.
And now, with CENTURION’s G-REMOTE app, you can unleash the power of the ULTRA range and enjoy complete control of your world.
We already talked about the amazing functionality of the G-ULTRA as a powerful tool for remotely monitoring and controlling various systems and devices in a previous blog post and, in this article, we’ll explore how G-REMOTE can make your life even easier.
Quick, easy activation of outputs
With G-REMOTE, you can instantaneously activate your connected devices – for example, gate motors, lights, pool pumps, etc. – with a single tap of the applicable button.
Customisable buttons and icons
The large, easy-to-read buttons can be tailored to match the functionality of the individual inputs and outputs.
You can, for example, have the trigger for your gate motor show a gate. In addition, button colours are customisable to denote different states (green for “on” and red for “off”). This is extremely useful in cases where you want to know when your alarm is armed or disarmed, or whether your gate is open or closed.
G-REMOTE is perfect for monitoring variable levels or states and you will receive push notifications on your phone for configured inputs.
One practical example is using the G-ULTRA in tandem with G-REMOTE to monitor your gate motor’s battery and send you notifications if the battery voltage falls below the threshold, or even if there is a power outage at your house.
G-REMOTE boasts a dedicated screen displaying critical system information such as token balances and device signal strength.
Our exciting new data plan for the ULTRA range gives you free data for the life of the product, ensuring that you never have to worry about running out or topping up. (Terms and conditions apply),
