BlackWire Designs is now offering ProDataKey’s pdk.io cloud-based wireless access control system. The plug-and-play solution is “easy for dealers to install, highly scalable, and simple for end-users to manage,” according to the BlackWire announcement.
“With its easy-to-use interface, pdk.io allows users to effortlessly manage cloud access control and see the status of every facility door in a single glance, while streamlining the programming process for installers,” according to the BlackWire press release.
The platform provides “full mobile management from any internet-connected device, real-time monitoring and customizable alerts, automated updates, six months of cloud backups, and more,” according to the BlackWire announcement.
“Unlike typical access control systems that are extremely complex and require the IT department or a dedicated employee to manage, pdk.io features an intuitive interface that eliminates any learning curve,” said BlackWire Designs owner Kevin Luther in the company announcement.
“For dealers, this means fewer support calls and a better experience for their customers. And any issues that do arise can be addressed off-site, opening up the possibilities for recurring monthly revenues through remote management programs,” he said.
More About PDK Cloud-Based Access Control Systems
Each PDK system is built around a CloudNode or rack-mount CloudNode SE gateway, which connects to the door hardware and network. The CloudNode can be used as a stand-alone device for single-door installations or can connect with up to a thousand doors on a single platform.
Doors can be quickly added with Singleio or Eightio plug-and-play controllers, which offer the flexibility of network, PoE, and wireless connectivity options and are equipped with a fully supervised power circuit that monitors input, output, battery voltage, and overall controller health.
Available system readers include the standard Mullion-style, ruggedized touchscreen keypad and the ruggedized HD reader with an eye-catching stainless-steel design. PDK will also soon be introducing a Bluetooth reader for credentialing via mobile devices.
