Don’t Gamble With Your Casino’s Efficiency

What Do You Need in a Resort or Casino Radio?
When you roll the dice on an off-brand walkie talkie, you’re taking a risk.
You need a quality name-brand radio in place that will truly meet the needs of your resort or casino.
But we don’t just want you to line up and buy the first radio off of our site that has an attractive name. A radio that we recommend to a small motel staff would not be powerful enough to meet the needs of a large resort casino. Likewise, a radio that might work for a massive theme park or college campus would be too powerful and include features that you won’t need if you're a boutique bed and breakfast.
What features should you look for when buying a radio for your resort or casino?
- Indoor and Outdoor Functionality: When dealing with the communication needs of a casino or resort, you’re going to have staff members both inside and outside. So you need a radio that can work well in both environments. We recommend a UHF Radio, which have been designed to enable seamless communication between your employees working inside and out on the grounds, including by the pool.
- Security: You’re going to need a radio that is both private and holds up in an emergency situation. Durability is a must, as are privacy codes. You don’t want guests with family radios to be able to listen in on your communications.
- Long Range: Depending on the size of your resort or casino, you’re going to need range. Ideally, you should find something with high wattage and a 20-30 floor range. That will work nicely for larger resort casinos.
- Multiple Channels: You’re also going to want to have multiple channels in place to segment your staff. Typically, casinos and resorts have a large staff and you don’t want them all talking over one another on a single channel. You need separate channels for your concierge/front desk, security, grounds keepers, recreation, daycare, valet parking, and more.
If you don’t know your specific radio needs then it’s going to be increasingly difficult to select a radio for your resort or casino. Call our dedicated radio professionals at 888-925-5982 and let us walk you through it.
Best Resort and Casino Radio Models
The Motorola DLR1060 is a perfect radio for most casinos.
For starters, it has six channels which can easily be used to segment a midsize staff. As far as range goes, you’re looking at 20 floors or 300,000 square feet. That will cover a smaller resort easily.
When outdoors, you have a range of up to two miles.
This radio runs on a digital band, meaning it requires no additional FCC License expenses. Some UHF and VHF radios need additional licensing from the government. Those license fees can be a pesky recurring charge. But with a digital radio, you never have to worry about Uncle Sam showing up with his hand out.
This is also a very secure device. The Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology built into it means that your private communications can’t be picked up by outsiders. It also has 10,000 radio profile ID codes to add further protection.
There’s a Page All and Call All Available feature included with this device. That means in the event of an emergency you’ll be able to communicate with the entire staff at once.
On the other side of the coin, the Direct Call feature allows you to reach out to one specific person privately.
You also have access to an Instant Mute feature that allows staff members who are speaking with guests to silence their radios so as not to interrupt the service they’re providing.
The DLR1060 comes equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that will hold up through employee shifts. This li-ion battery has a life of up to 14 hours.

The Motorola RMU2040 is a UHF Radio that features four channels to segment a midsize staff.
It provides outdoor communications of up to two miles and an indoor range of 20 floors or 250,000 square feet.
This device is highly durable. It meets many military standards for hardware, meaning it can be dropped without breaking.
You won’t have to worry about your communications being picked up by guests or other businesses. With 219 privacy codes, all interference and crosstalk is effectively eliminated. The RMU2040 also operates on 99 UHF frequencies exclusive to businesses, so personal radios aren’t going to be honing in on you.
Now more than ever, the spread of germs and bacteria is a concern for businesses. The RMU2040 has this well in mind. That’s why it is covered in an anti-microbial coating to keep staff members healthy.
If you have a small to midsize casino or resort that needs a quality radio, you should contact Tech Wholesale to get a free personalized quote on the Motorola RMU2040.
The Motorola RDU4100 is a powerhouse with a massive 4-Watts of power.
This monster device has a whopping 10 channels, which allows you to segment a very large staff.
Massive sprawling resorts or casinos will have great success with this device. It allows for outdoor communications of up to three miles. On top of that, its indoor range is up to 30 floors.
The RDU4100 comes in a military-grade case that is covered in polycarbonate. It can be dropped from a scaffold and be perfectly fine. This radio was initially developed for military use, so there’s nothing that a resort can throw at it that will be a major threat.
Noise reduction technology is built into this device in order to limit ambient noise. This comes in handy when being used on a busy casino floor next to a slot machine.
On top of all that, privacy codes will keep your communications out of the clutches of potential eavesdroppers.
This device is also repeater capable, meaning that you can double its already impressive range if you need to.

The Motorola RDU4160d has the same impressive power as the RDU4100, but it was made to be used by a larger staff.
It features 16 different channels to use for staff segmentation with the same 4-Watts of power that its sister device has.
That power isn’t the only similarity between the two. The RDU4160d features the same amazing three mile outdoor range and 30-floor range.
It also has the same awesome military-grade durability, able to withstand falls without breaking.
This is a repeater ready device, so take that three mile outdoor range and make it six miles. Take the 30-floor range indoors and make it 60.

Which Resort/Casino Radio is Right for You?
The Best Radio For A Small Casino
If you have a small resort or casino, we highly recommend the Motorola RMU2040.
The 20-floor indoor range of this device is perfect for a smaller space. Being a UHF device, it can still reach outdoor bars and pools while working inside.
With an impressive four channels, you’re in a perfect position to segment a small to midsize staff.
It also comes with enhanced durability thanks to its military standard hardware that can withstand the hustle and bustle of a smaller casino.
When it comes to privacy, you’re covered by 219 privacy codes. You’re also not going to see dangerous bacteria passing from staff member to staff member thanks to the anti-microbial coating that is meant to stop contagion from spreading.

The Best Radio For A Sprawling Resort and Casino
If you have a resort that has multiple buildings spread out over a large space with several pools plus and a casino, you want the Motorola RDU4100.
With a hefty 4-Watts of power, this device will be able to reach all corners of your resort.
You also have 10 channels, which is perfect for segmenting the large staff such a huge resort requires.
It has a 30-floor range indoor range and can communicate for up to three miles outside.
The military-grade hardware of the RDU4100 will also ensure that your devices can be dropped, banged, and hit with no threat of breaking.
What’s more, this device is repeater capable. That means it will turn the already impressive three-mile range into six miles and 30 floors into 60.
If your staff is larger and requires additional segmentation, consider trying the RDU4160d, which has the same perks, plus 16 different channels.
