With Comlink’s cloud-based solution, gate manufacturers can offer their customers full control with real-time monitoring and convenient mobile access control and also streamline their service and maintenance. A mobile app has been launched as a complement to the system.

The Swedish company Comlink has worked closely with the industry to develop a turn-key system to connect all types of gates, doors, bollards and barriers to the cloud. The system is available across Scandinavia and is now being launched for a wider audience in the UK. The solution consists of a small connectivity device connected to the gate automation, together with a web portal and a mobile app. It allows gate manufacturers to securely upgrade their existing product range with the latest technology, without major investments or long development processes.

“Comlink’s solution enables service technicians to carry out convenient remote troubleshooting so they can more quickly help the customer,” said Johan Borg, CEO and co-founder of Comlink AB. “For example, the technician can easily see if the gate is open, if the safety edge has been affected, if the power is out, examine the event log, and more. This minimizes unnecessary call-outs while providing gate owners with better service.”

The system is compatible with virtually all gate and door automation systems on the market, both new and old, making it possible to monitor and manage all installations in a single system.

GSM openers are already built into the system, with flexible customization of user permissions. The built-in annual timer makes it easy to schedule when the gate should be open, or to add rules for weekends and holidays in advance. All conveniently configured via the web portal.

The new mobile app supplements and reinforces the current functionality for access control already offered by the system. Now you can even open the gate with the mobile app, securely monitor gate status in real time and have customized alarms – directly from your smartphone.

The entire solution – the mobile app, the web portal and the hardware – can be branded with the company’s own name and trademark, so the manufacturer can offer the system as their ‘own’. Comlink’s solution is unique on the market and has been developed in collaboration with gate manufacturers to suit their requirements.
