MODEL 1400 (SG 2)
|OK, So what IS a SG2?
It's an access control device
So, what does it do?
It prevents or allows (your choice) vehicles and pedestrians to enter through the gate or entrance.
What does it do right out of the box?
Push the big black CALL button and it rings the phones in your house. Push a Touch Tone 6 on your phone and the gate opens.
How does it do that?
Keeps the gate locked until someone calls the house, or uses a card or a PIN code.
What's a PIN code?
It's security jargon for Personal Identification Number. If you use phone calling cards or an ATM; you have used a PIN. It's the same thing, only there is no card involved.
How do I use a PIN code-?
You press a * and four digits on the keypad, and if they're the RIGHT 4 digits, in you go!
But, can I use a card too?
Sure, you can use up to 100 of any industry standard 26 bit Wiegand devices, Eke cards, "clickers" (RF Transmitters), anything that will generate an access device number..
What is Wilegand?
An industry standard for access control devices; your installer will know.
What is a clicker? Is that like the one on my car alarm?
Yes. People call them clickers, but they are actually RF transmitters.
Can I make my car's clicker work for both?
Sorry, no. Auto manufacturers don't make access control equipment and we don't make cars. Actually, our clicker is a little more secure than theirs, anyway.
How many PIN codes can I have?
My family's not that big
Well, we also use these for small businesses. But you can do a lot of things with these PIN codes.
Have one PIN open one gate, another PIN open a different gate. Have a PIN that only works on Wednesdays, or Christmas, or almost anything you want.
Only works on Wednesdays? How lame is that?
Not to people that have scheduled deliveries. You can give a PIN to the yard man, or the guy who cleans your pool on Wednesdays and if he tries to sneak in on Saturday, he's out of luck.
Can I do the same thing with Cards or RF Transmitters?
Sure, but those are better left to family members. You can have up to 100 cards, or RF transmitters, too. You can also have PIN or cards "expire" by defining a start and stop date, that the access device number is valid.
How about people who don't have a PIN or a card?
They push that big black CALL button and it rings the house.
How does that work?
You answer any phone on the fine, talk to whoever pushed the big black button, then decide if you want to let them in and press a Touch Tone (like 6, for example) on your phone. The gate opens. Simple.
What if I'm already on the phone?
You get a call waiting beep and you press * or # on your phone. This puts whomever you were talking to on hold, and connects you to the gate. After you press the open tone (like # 6, for example), the call switches back to the person on hold and you resume the conversation.
Any one you want, except 0. It's programmable. It uses a 6 fight out of the box, so push 6 when you get called and the gate opens.
How long will the gate stay open for:?
1 to 99 seconds, as set up by your installer.
Can it call other buildings on die property, other than the house?
Sure. It can call up to 10 numbers. You press a number, then #. For example, you might press 3# to call the barn or the ranch hands quarters, or whatever.
I don't have a ranch
That's OK; it can also be used for small to medium businesses, that want to call up to 10 separate offices.
I have a pretty fancy phone system in my house, how does it work with that?
Pretty good, actually. We designed the SG2 from the bottom up, to make it easy to interface to small PBX systems either as an analog extension or as an unused COM port. Ask your installer, he'll appreciate the versatility.
How about DSL systems for my computer?
Just have your installer follow our installation diagram and you're good to go.
Can I open the SG-2 without being called first, like if I recognize one of my friends at the gate?
Sure, go to a phone, lift up the receiver, wait a second, then press the first two digits of the password, then * then an open tone. Example: 77 * 6
What kind of in open tone?
There are several. You can open the gate for the timed amount (1 -99 seconds), or for one hour, or forever. We call that "latched open".
Which tone does what?
Your choice. We set the timed open tone to 6 on an SG-2 but it is programmable for everything except 0 (0 is ignored by SG-2) so if you want 1 to open for a timed amount, 2 to latch open forever and 3 to open for an hour, that's your choice. just tell your installer what you want. Quick! He's getting in the truck!
Why would I want to "latch" my gate open?
just to keep the gate open when you have a lot of guests over, for a party or something, so you don't get a traffic jam.
How do I unlatch a gate, that I latched open?
Same thing you did to latch it open, only this time, use the timed amount tone. By the way, the remote control password ALSO turns on the mike and speaker, in case you need to say something through the SG-2 like: "You kids leave that mailbox alone!"
So if I'm waiting for a delivery, does that mean I'm stuck- at the house? Not with our Select Gate. We have a feature called: call forwarding. When the big black button gets pushed, instead of ringing the house it calls a pre-programmed phone number. Like to the cell phone you're carrying with you, for example. Go do your errand and if the delivery shows up while you're away from the house, you can still open the gate.
I guess I could also call-forward to my office too, huh?
Can people call and disturb me at all hours of the day or night, with this thing?
That's up to you. You can make it active 24/7 or you can set up a time schedule, where ONLY during certain hours of the day (or night) will it call the house, when the button is pushed.
Tell me more about this "Time Schedule".
Just like an airline schedule (only, more accurate!), it defines a starting time and an ending time, and some combination of days in the week when something is true. Like Mondays and Fridays from 10 in the morning unti12 in the afternoon, is an example of a Time Schedule. Or Monday through Friday from 9 to 5.
Why would I want a schedule that is true, while I am at work?
Because you could put that time schedule in the call forwarding function, and any, calls to the house from the SG -2, would be automatically routed to your office. After you're back home, any calls go directly to the house and you didn't have to do anything to make that happen after you set up the Time Schedule.
How do I do that?
You can program Time Schedules from the keypad on the SG-2. You can also program Time Schedules (as well as any other programmable function) from a Touch Tone phone in your house. You could even get the optional modem and software package and program it from your computer. There is a programming features sheet that has a place for you to fill in the blanks and key in the information. You could get your installer to do it, but it's a LOT easier, with the software.
This must be how some PINs only work on Wednesdays.
Yes, you simply assign a Time Schedule to a PlN (or a card).
How many Time Schedules are there in this thing?
Lots. Time Schedule 0 is 24/7. There are also 7 individually programmable Time Schedules (I 7) and two that are combinations: Time Schedule #8 is a combination of Time Schedules 4 and 5. Time Schedule #9 is a combination of Time Schedules 6 and 7.
Why would I want to combine Time Schedules?
We don't know either, but they're there, if you need them! Actually, this is pretty useful to small businesses that want their gates to automatically open in the morning, so employees can get into a restricted parking lot; then automatically open again in the afternoons, so the employees can go home.
How does a Time Schedule open a gate?
It's called Automatic Unlock. It's the same principle as your porch fights going on at flight, or lawn sprinklers coming on, automatically.
What about Holidays?
There is room to define up to 10 Holidays. For small to medium business owners, this can affect the automatic unlock hours on Holidays, when no one is at the facility, with out having to re-program everything, for just one Holiday.
So what else has this thing got?
Another relay, for one thing. That's the gadget that makes the gate work. You could have two different gates open and close from the SG-2. Or, you can make the second relay come on every time someone calls the house, so you could control a CTTV camera, for example. There are a variety of choices; one of them should work for your needs.
How does a PIN for one gate, make the other gate work?
That's up to you. You can program PINs or cards so that a PIN opens one gate, or the other gate, or both gates, when a PIN code is entered on the keypad. This is called a Relay Action and is on the Programming Sheet. You can also make it only open when a Time Schedule is true. So every single PIN and card can have a Relay Action and a Time Schedule assigned to it.
There's that programming word again. My VCR is still blinking 00-00-00 two years after I got it. How do I make this thing do what I want?
You can use the Programming Sheet provided, or you can buy the optional Modem and Software to make fife simpler. Contact your installer for details. For example, the software will set the clock automatically from your computer's clock. Your choice. Right out of the box, an SG2 will call the house and open the gate when it hears a Touch Tone 6. If that is as fancy as you want to get for now, then you don't have to do anything.
How many ways to Program are there, in this thing?
Several. You can press * and 0 at the same time and then key in the 4 digit pass code from the keypad on the front of the SG-2. You can lift up a phone handset in your house and press the 4 digit pass code -and a *. You can call your phone number from an outside phone and when the SG-2 answers, press the 4 digit pass code and a *, or you can get the optional modem and included software and program it right from your home computer.
Any other bells and whistles?
How about a 800-event toe. If you get the optional Modem and Software package, you can keep track of who called the house, when, or used a PIN code, or anything that happened to the SG-2.
What good does that do a homeowner?
That's up to you. Want to find out when the teenager REALLY got home, last flight with the family car? Look in the log. If junior's card shows a 4 AM time stamp, he's busted!
Guess that's more helpful to a small to medium business owner, huh?
Well, there are 4 distinctive phone ringing cadences (short or long rings, etc.) to let you know you are being called from the SG-2, instead of from somewhere else. If you have more than one SG-2 on your property (and oh, by the way, Bless you!) you can set each SG-2 with a distinctive ring. Short Short (out of the box), Short Long, Long Short or Long Long.
How many SG-2s can I have attached to the same phone line?
Up to 4 on the same phone fine, but you will have to change their pass codes, in order to program them.
How about if I'm already on the phone, talking to someone else?
The call waiting beeps will alert you; again, using a distinctive tone cadence. (SS, SL, LS, LL)
So this thing can do quite a lot, after all.
Yes, thank you. And we didn't even get into making the keypad active (keys 0 -9) after calling the house, or clearing the log, or setting the clock. Play with it a while. Our customers think up LOTS of things for the SG-2 to do.
Ooops!! Troubleshooting the SG-2:
I MEANT to write down my pass code, but I forgot what it is! Now what do I do?
There are two metal pins marked PROG on the SG-2. Touch them together, (might want to have your installer do this) and it will reset the pass code to 7777. Then, change it to whatever you want, using the program sheet. Oh, and write it down this time!
When using the remote control function and entering my passcode, sometimes the phone company message comes on first. Why?
In different parts of the country you may activate the automatic message equipment. This happens if your pass code interferes with an exchange in your area. just change the first two digits of the pass code, to something your local telephone company computer is happier with.
