GSM gate controller GV17 can remotely control automatic gates and other equipment. Users can control GV17 with Protegus application, telephone calls and SMS messages. The controller can recognize up to 7 administrator and 990 user telephone numbers. A user control schedule and counter for how many times a specific user can control the system can be set for the GV17. The GSM controller can send SMS messages informing when inputs and outputs are activated and restored (the text of the SMS messages is customizable). The controller is capable of sending event messages to the receiver of a security company.
