How does Connect work?

Make your perimeter security smart with Connect, the smart addition to your service and maintenance solution.

Connect not only provides information about the status of your Heras and non-Heras entrance solutions, but also monitors all key components 24/7. You always have real-time insight into the status of your automatic sliding gate, swing gate, speed gate, barrier or turnstile via your smartphone, tablet or PC.

How does Connect work?

Connect is a platform consisting of the Heras Cloud Unit (hardware) and the Heras Cloud Portal. The hardware is installed on an automated gate and connects wirelessly to the portal via the GSM network. The Heras Cloud Unit monitors vital gate parameters: gate status, safety functions, electrical power supply and frequency of use.



For all these parameters, the system can generate alert messages based on freely selectable filter criteria. The connections between ports, smartphones and the online portal use SSL encryption, VPN tunnelling, secure passwords and Next Generation Fire Walls. This ensures secure use and prevents misuse of access to your premises.
