Network Relay Controller

Remotely control and schedule school/factory bells, sounders, sirens, strobe lights, and more


BellCommander works with the Barix BarioNet to remotely control relays for bell systems, sirens, light devices, and more. Bell systems that connect to a mechanical or electronic device for scheduling via relays or contact closures can be replaced with the Barix BarioNet relay controller and the BellCommander network software.

Each BarioNet device contains two relays that can be activated over a network by BellCommander. BellCommander supports multiple BarioNet devices, so relays can be activated in multiple buildings using a single copy of BellCommander.

Barix network audio devices and client PCs can also be added to this configuration. So, audio can be streamed to a Barix Exstreamer and a Barix BarioNet could trigger a relay for a strobe light to provide both audio and visual notifications.

The relays are capable of 5.0 Amps at up to 240VAC.

Pricing: (Order Now)
Pricing depends on the total number of network devices. A BellCommander network license should be purchased along with the Barix BarioNet devices. For up to 10 Barix devices, the BellCommander Small Network Version license for $299.95 would be used.

The Barix BarioNet 50 ($198) or Barix BarioNet 100 ($310) could be used for the hardware.  The BarioNet 50 has four low-voltage rated relays (.5 amp @ 30VDC) and the BarioNet has two high voltage rated circuits at (5 amps @ 240 VAC).  Both devices would need an external power supply.  AcroVista offers a power supply for $25.  Free ground shipping to continental U.S. included in price
