For security reasons, the entrance to a
gated community is controlled by either a
security guard or an unmanned system.
Typically unmanned systems require an
authorized code or a handheld remote to
open the gate.
When exiting the gated community,
however, an automatically opening gate
is typically used.
Many of these communities are reluctant
to install or maintain systems that
damage large portions of the brick or
stonework installed near the exit.
Traditional wired inductive loop vehicle detection systems require large sections of pavement
or brickwork to be damaged and removed for installation and repairs.
To avoid damaging pavement, use Banner’s wireless M-GAGE sensor Node, which requires
only a 2.5 inch diameter hole for burial installations. The sensitivity of the M-GAGE vehicle
sensor can be configured to detect most passenger vehicles within range of the embedded
The Node and M-GAGE sensor are powered by a battery integrated into the compact
housing, offering up to five years of battery life. The Gateway, or wireless network controller,
can be installed in a centralized control facility up to 1000 feet away.
