The RemoteVPN service provides remote access without concern for intervening firewalls. This cloud-based VPN server provides secure encrypted connections between VPN clients installed on the systems integrator's PC or mobile device and the other permanently installed on our VPN router located at the job sites. This approach provides the creation of two secure VPN tunnels with no concern for intervening firewalls. Connections can be wired or wireless. Multiple remote sites can be accessed simultaneously using the RemoteVPN service.
In addition to our RemoteVPN subscription service, Contemporary Controls offers Self-HostedVPN and BridgeVPN solutions.
Contemporary Controls' EIPR-V, EIGR-V series, and EIGR-C series Skorpion IP routers support OpenVPN® client functionality and can be used with our RemoteVPN subscription service. Our EIGR-V, EIGR-VB routers can be configured as VPN servers for our Self-HostedVPN and BridgeVPN solutions.
For network-savvy customers wishing to avoid subscription fees, the EIGR-V routers can be configured to operate in OpenVPN server mode, thereby eliminating the cloud service and related fees.
For network savvy users, Contemporary Controls' Self-HostedVPN solution utilizes the EIGR-V Skorpion Gigabit IP router configured to operate in OpenVPN server mode. This allows the router to act as the VPN server capable of supporting Contemporary Controls' wired and cellular routers as VPN clients. This Self-HostedVPN solution provides wired or wireless remote access for multiple clients—up to 15 wired/cellular IP routers in OpenVPN client mode and 15 OpenVPN clients on PC/tablet/phone.
For single-site remote access, Contemporary Controls also offers a BridgeVPN solution which utilizes the EIGR-VB Gigabit IP router configured to operate in OpenVPN server mode as a wired bridge VPN server. This BridgeVPN solution can support up to 10 VPN clients on PC/tablet/phone.
