BFT will introduce new flush mount models of its popular cellular access system. These models will al- low for easy installation in columns and apartment buildings. The systems come with an exter- nal antenna for remote mounting. A new Wi-Fi video model will be in- troduced that allows the homeowner to not only speak to the visitor from anywhere in the world but to see the visitor as well. The camera allows for 640 x 480 pixels with 100 degrees of viewing angle using the Wi-Fi net- work from the homeowner's residence with a 200 yard range. The phone access systems pro- vide entry to properties using cellular 3G GSM technology.

A 1,000 user keypad is included as well as a hold open feature. The system works with standard prepay or contract AT&T or T-Mobile SIM cards. BFT now includes at no charge a T-Mobile SIM card for ease of activa- tion and cost savings through a nation- ally discounted contract. It offers easy programming by SMS text messaging to the phone.
