What is STROBESWITCH™: TOMAR STROBESWITCH™ works lock an emergency unlock feature for restricted or gate-accessed properties. It allows first responders to open a locked automatic gate without having to exit their vehicle.
How Access Control Works: An emergency vehicle uses a special optical emitter to transmit a signal. The TOMAR STROBESWITCH™ receives this signal, and if the signal format is correct, activates its solid-state output relay. The access control relay output may be used to control security gates, fire department garage doors, and other devices. Signaling is optical by line of sight, and the TOMAR STROBESWITCH™ can operate indoors or outdoors, in bright sunlight, or in any weather. The unit is not susceptible to radio frequency interference, and uses digital frequency discrimination to reject unwanted signals, such as flashlights, emergency vehicle lighting systems, flashing signs, etc.
Why STROBESWITCH™: TOMAR STROBESWITCH™ can save precious seconds, even minutes, when it matters the most. Don’t keep out those coming to emergency aid.
Who Uses STROBESWITCH™: Many municipalities across the United States have city codes or other regulations which require builders of gate-systems to use TOMAR STROBESWITCH™, to help protect the people and property behind the gate in the event of a fire or other emergency.
