This works like something you might see in Star Trek!
Hold a small fob or card near the reader, from 4" to 24"
depending on the model, and an electric strike or magnetic
lock opens! The reader can be mounted inside or behind the
wall in areas where vandalism is a problem. Some of the
newer readers even have a keypad built in to use for
programming or PIN!
For security managers, dealers, integrators and OEMs,
proximity cards and readers are recognized as the industry
standard for physical access control.
The products are robust, affordable, and seamlessly
integrate with access control systems. Featuring security
coding, the high-quality 125 kHz Proximity readers
combines intelligent programming technology with
interchangeable components including uniform modules and a
range of stylish cover designs.
On the systems we sell, programming is actually done
right at the reader itself using either the little
proximity keys that come with the reader or by using the
number buttons (keypad) built into the unit. A laptop or
PC can also be used to program the system and do audit
trails (who entered and when). If you need to have the
type of installation where you need to monitor who goes in
and who goes out please see our multi door proximity
systems area. Most of the multi door systems can be
configured this way so one reader from either side of the
door can be read. These systems are very cost effective
since unlike conventional keys, proximity cards and fobs
can be re-used and re-issued.
