(Free Vend Remote)


Meet local or state regulations and offer c-store operators an alternative to providing change for customer use of an on-site AVW machines with the FreeBee – Free Vend Remote. Because it uses a spread spectrum radio signal the FreeBee remote is not limited to line-of site activation of the AVW machine. This means that the AVW machine can be remotely activated from virtually anywhere on location, at a distance of up to 150’ away from the machine. The FreeBee remote features an intuitive LED indicator as well as an audible tone to provide confirmation that the remote vend has been successfully initiated. Each remote activated vend is then uniquely identified by the ProStar AVW200 controller, timer & monitor, which allows for easy recognition and management of coin paid vends vs. free vends once the data has been transferred to the IVS for AVW management program.



Standard Features:

* Enables the AVW machine from a distance of up to 150’.
