AES-IntelliGuard is a system for monitoring home arrest subjects and Alzheimerâ€™s patients. A tamperproof bracelet worn by the â€œclientâ€ is linked by short-range radio to the IntelliGuard unit. If the client leaves the monitored area, an alarm is generated. The alarm is sent by AES-IntelliNet radio â€“ without telephone lines â€“ to the central station. AES radio solves problems created by phone links including frequent (costly) check-ins, interference with resident calls, and tampering.

Door contact signals can be controlled and monitored remotely over the same pair of wires or with fiber optic, wireless or Ethernet data links. In the access control environment, there are cards and readers connected to a control panel via standard copper wires (usually 12 wires with a distance limit of 500 ft.). The panel is then connected to a host computer via RS-232 or Ethernet. The DUPREX is designed to connect any two card, tag, biometric readers to any control panel via a single pair of wires (up to 10,000 ft.), fiber optic (typically 5 miles), Ethernet (anywhere within a WAN), Internet (around the world), or wireless link (up to 2 miles). As far as the panel is aware, it is directly connected to the reader and I/O points (totally transparent, plug and play).
