Key Card

What is a Key Card Reader?

A key card is a security token that grants you access through electrically-powered doors. These systems require a keycard reader (installed on the door) that grants access by tapping your card on the reader (proximity reader), swiping it (swipe reader), or inserting it (insert reader). These devices are common in hotels, apartments, and office buildings. 

How Does it Work with a Reader?

With key cards, users no longer need to insert a metal or traditional key into a tumbler lock to gain access. Instead, there is an embedded access credential on the keycard magstripe, or as a chip in the card itself, and this is read by the keycard reader each time you attempt an unlock. If the reader recognizes the unique code on your card, permission is granted for access.

How Does the Reader Control the Door Lock?

Once the reader recognizes the access credential, it then communicates with the door lock. The smart access control reader will be wired to an electric lock on your door and it will send a signal to the lock to start an unlock event. With a good system, the whole process takes less than a second.

Benefits of Using Key Card

Benefits of Using Key Card Reader in Beaumont, Tyler or Lufkin

  • You can configure and reconfigure access to your property using the same card. Whereas with metal key, new keys need to be issued and old keys have to be returned.
  • Key cards require a very sophisticated technology to create, so the chances of someone making a copy of a key card are very low.
  • Each card’s information is stored in a database. So if someone loses their card, you can remove that card from the database, making the actual card useless for anyone who might find it.
  • The clearance levels of individual cards can be altered instantly by a network operator. This means if you need to give temporary access to someone, for example, a guest staying at your home for a time, you can do that quickly and efficiently.
  • Key Cards can easily fit into your wallet or cardholder and provides remote deactivation capability.
  • With key card readers, you can easily provide access to multiple doors, can provide restrictions for certain times, certain access levels, or even certain numbers of unlocks.
