SKU: AL-IM2-80211
Your Current Selections:
  • Version 2 model virtually same as the original “version 1” Gateways, but with added ability to expand your Networx lock system with up to 7 Expanders (model AL-IME2-EXP)
    • Expanders cannot communicate with older “non-version 2” Gateways
  • Next generation of Networx Gateways
  • Mount within 175 feet (radially) from the intended wireless lock location(s)
    • Open areas increase range while concrete building construction, walls, ceilings and narrow corridors decrease range
  • Expanders should be mounted in elevated areas; however mounting in a drop ceiling can adversely affect signal strength
    • Preferred mounting position = 6 to 12″ below standard 8-9 foot ceiling
  • Cost-effective and easier to wire than conventional gateways
  • Simplified ‘Plug and Play’ setup; Networx system automatically identifies all newly powered Expanders and quickly self-determines the best wireless signal pathways
  • Each Gen. 2 Gateway and a maximum of seven (7) Expanders can be addressed as one group – IT Friendly!
  • Total of 99 addressable groups supported (addressable by two rotary switches)
  • Both Generation 2 Gateways and matching AL-IME2-EXP and plug-in AL-IME2-PIE Expanders have a new modern styling, and three LED indicators, blending into any decor

Note:  Version 2 Gateways CAN be mixed into an existing system that includes older “non-version 2” Gateways.

    The wireless functions of this are terrible. Ethernet seems to work just fine, but I bought it for its wireless functions. Both the wifi and the connection to the locks was flakey at best. It kept disconnecting from both. Also the WIFI wouldn’t let me use a password longer than 20 characters even though the WPA2 spec says it should support up to 64. Finally, the Windows-DL software that you’re supposed to use to control it has limited private documentation (almost like Alarm Lock is trying to keep it a secret). You end up having to call GoKeyless because Alarm Lock won’t talk to you about it directly, and that usually results in a phone call with Alarm Lock anyway. The software seems to be designed by a software engineer who’s never built an app for the outside world. As a software developer of 30 years myself, I found the UX of this software appalling. I returned the unit after dinking around with it for more than a month due to all the bugs I encountered.
