IN a significant update to the T4000, Inner Range has introduced a 4G model. And in an industry first, the T4000 can now also function as a router. With an affordable data subscription installers and end-users can remotely connect and manage their security systems on sites without internet access.
The T4000 uses mobile data to provide Inner Range controllers internet and SkyTunnel access. SkyTunnel is a secure cloud-based service by Inner Range that simplifies the connection of Inner Range security controllers to software, smartphone Apps and web interfaces.
“Router functionality with the T4000 can help to overcome many of the networking hurdles often experienced when dealing with IT departments and corporate networks” said Jason Hartley, T4000 product manager.
Unlike domestic routers, the T4000 is a commercial grade security product that can be battery backed, is continuously polled and has redundant mobile network connections.
Router functionality can be enabled on all T4000s new in the box and out in the field, with firmware version 3.10.xxx or later. Firmware updates can be performed over the air cost-free, with no hardware purchase required to gain this new router feature.
The T4000 router functionality combined with Inner Range’s SkyTunnel is a cost effective and surprisingly simple way to connect to security controllers on remote sites.
