Access Control Reader

Proximity or Access Card Readers & Installation

An Access Control Reader comes in a variety of forms and may have varying functional capabilities. Basic Access Control Readers can only perform simple functions such as reading a card or accepting a PIN Code which are then transferred to a controller. Semi-Intelligent Readers have all the inputs / outputs necessary to control a doors hardware (lock, door contact, exit button), but do not make any access decisions as they are still made by the controller. Intelligent Proximity Card Readers have all inputs / outputs necessary to control a door’s hardware and they also have memory and processing power necessary to make access decisions independently.

Deciding which Access Control or Proximity Card Reader is best for your environment can be complex. Contact a Surveillance Technology expert to help guide your way!
