Call the switch from your mobile or landline phone to open your gate.
The switch recognises an incoming call and operates the gate without the call connecting so there's no charge for it.
Specify the phone numbers it can be operated from or leave as supplied so that any phone can operate the switch.
Please note that using your mobile phone while driving can be dangerous and is illegal unless the phone is hands-free. Please see Gov.UK for more information on the safe and legal use of mobile phones while driving.
Simple Set Up Via SMS
Using GSM technology, this module wires directly into your gates control board. You need to install a SIM card* into the module and then set up the system simply using SMS messaging from your phone.
Once fully set up all you need to do is phone your gates to open them.
Extra Security & Peace Of Mind
If you choose to associate your mobile number with the system then you can open your gates from home, work or abroad.
When you phone your gates to open them, the module checks that your number is associated with the system, and rejects the call so there is no charge and then opens your gate. You can programme in up to 20 phone numbers to the system so that you can grant access to everyone in the household and friends, family and workers by the same method for convenience.
No Separate Power Supply Needed
There is no need for a separate power supply as this module requires just 300-350mA so can be powered directly from the control board itself. When you combine this with the fact that you require no cabling between your house and gate, you have a flexible solution which is a fast and cost-effective way to control the opening of your gates.
You do not have to programme any numbers in and then anyone with the correct number can open gates. This means very fast installation
You can send text messages to hold the gate open
VME Gate Switch Installer App
Until now our Apps have been for end users to operate the gates. The new app will make the VME Gate Switch simpler to set up and provide additional features for Installers. The Engineer code required at start up (code is available from the Install manual) limits the use of these Setup Apps to Installers.

Linkcare Trade Discounts
Linkcare provides trade discount accounts for gate automation and access control installers and engineers.
We do not advertise trade discounted prices to the public.
The only way to see reduced prices in the Linkcare shop is by logging in with an installer account username and password.
You can then search for, compare, and buy any products online at the reduced trade prices.
You can also add products into wish lists for preparing quotes.
We protect your trade prices to prevent home owners from buying gate automation and access controls, and then asking you to install it. Some wholesalers sell to anyone at trade discounted pricing. This allows them to sell well, but it potentially reduces what you can earn from each installation job.
We want to ensure that qualified and trusted gate automation and access control installation professionsls are responsible for all gate automation installation so that each one is as safe as it can be.
