1833 – 80 Series Entry System

Telephone Entry & Access Control

The Model 1833 is an ideal telephone entry and access control system that is suited for applications that do not require a directory or in applications where a separate directory exists. The 1830 Series allows you to choose your preferred method of connecting the system; Cellular, Internet or POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) connection.  The easy to use Remote Account Manager programming software, card reader interface and expandability options make this unit an ideal choice for those applications with a large number of system users and entry locations. Up to 48 wired remote access points (or 24 wirelessly) can be controlled with the 1833 using Tracker expansion boards. Additionally, our elevator control module restricts which floors a guest or system users have access to, making it an ideal system for high rise buildings. For additional security, the 1833 allows you to monitor activity AS IT HAPPENS on your computer display and with our anti-pass back memory, you can enable a TRUE anti-pass back system in one of three different configurations; passive, active and trap.
