ProdataKey (PDK) announces the introduction of “Pedestal IO”, a versatile, door and gate controller designed for use in all-weather outdoor applications. Ideal for securing parking lots, gated communities, storage facilities, and other exposed outdoor locations, the pedestal io is compatible with any ProdataKey cloud-based, network or wireless access control system. Its IP65 rating certifies it for use not only in direct rain, sleet, and snow but also in dusty or dirty environments, such as construction zones. The unit can be mounted quickly and easily to goosenecks or walls and comes ready for plug-and-play installation. An optional ruggedized touchpad reader supplements the unit' s ability to work with proximity cards and fobs.
Inside the Pedestal IO' s visually appealing, stainless-steel housing, the unit’s PDK io controller provides two reader inputs to support applications that require a credential presentation for both read-in and read-out. The second reader input can also be assigned to trigger automated events. Pedestal IO' s powerful software intelligently monitors the controller and provides instant alerts on screen or via text or email if any issues arise. Like all PDK controllers that operate as part of the company’s cloud platform, the Pedestal IO continues to provide security and respond to authorized credentials in cases of an internet outage. It is powered by a 12-24V AC/DC input and 12VDC 1.5A battery-backed output.
Jeff Perri, President of ProdataKey, says, “PDK’s cloud access control solution has been gaining traction in a wide range of verticals, including gated communities, corporate campuses, sporting venues, and warehouse and storage facilities, just to name a few. All of these typically include spots that could benefit from an outdoor controller, like pedestal io. We’re pleased to not only bring such a solution to market but to back it with the same plug-and-play convenience, flexible connectivity options, ease of use and robust management tools that our customers rely on.”
