  GateGuard w/Keypad™ Long Range Wireless Intercom/Callbox and Remote Control System
Ritron - Go Beyond Normal Limits!
Put an end to uninvited visitors, vandals, and other potential security risks. Add the security, convenience, and productivity benefits of a Ritron® GateGuard w/Keypad system to your facility today! All-In-One entry keypad and long-range (measured in miles not feet) 2-way wireless intercom with remote control capability. Ritron offers it's popular XT 2-way callbox with integrated keypad. The entry keypad with built-in relay and the callbox relay are each wired separately to the controller device. Authorized users with pre-assigned entry codes can use the keypad to activate either the gate controller or magnetic door lock.

Radio-equipped personnel can then activate the controller remotely using their 2-way portable or base station radio. The Basic Ritron GateGuard w/Keypad system consists of a rugged, wireless intercom/callbox with integrated keypad, a Ritron hand-held portable radio, and a stationary desktop base station. Other components such as extra callboxes and portable radios can be added.

Keypad Entry or Long Range Voice Communication AND Remote Control from a Ritron Portable Radio or Base Station.

How the GateGuard System Works:
     1. Visitor/delivery person arrives at secured gate area.
     2. Visitor/delivery person activates OutPost with keypad for immediate entry with pre-authorized code OR...pushes call button to announce their arrival.
     3. Call from gate is received via radio by facility personnel. Using a Ritron portable radio or desktop base station, authorized personnel can communicate remotely with individual at gate and transmit a security code back to the OutPost wireless intercom/callbox to activate gate controller.
     4. Security code is received by the OutPost wireless callbox. The built-in GateGuard feature activates the "attached" gate controller. The gate opens allowing approved visitors to enter facility.
