I have an application I am trying to figure out. A facility is putting in a gate opener on a vehicle gate and a personnel gate with locking hardware. They want card access for both. There is power available at the locations, but they want the readers integrated, and they want activity reporting to a computer inside the facility. Unfortunately do to the existance of a parking lot, distance, and other underground parts of their operation it is not practical to run a conduit back to the building. Suggestions?
The access control system can be handled. There is still raw earth between the gate operator location and the personnel gate location. Mount some poles, and put the access controller in a large electrical J-box insdide the scondary fence.
The problem comes in getting from there to the building with reporting data in some easy to use format.
