Keypads/Card Readers

Keypads versus Card Readers / Biometrics

You don’t have to worry about losing or misplacing your keys when you upgrade to keypad and card reader lock systems. Both will do the job but selecting the best technology for the application is imperative.

Keypads are best used for courtyard gates; garage doors and areas that require a modest amount of security. Keep in mind when you issue a pin to enter, that person can also issue it to multiple people.

Card readers offer a much higher level of security. These systems offer:

  • Proximity cards
  • Audit Trail
  • Time Zones

App Based Access Systems. These systems offer all the same functions as the card system, manage the system right from your cell phone.

  • Proximity cards
  • Audit Trail
  • Time Zones

Biometrics

Previously, mostly used in government installations due to cost, biometric technology is now obtainable for the mass market. Retina, hand or finger scanners are the most widely used. To create the highest level of security a combination of biometric and proximity readers is recommended.

Keypad, proximity and biometrics are all available as stand alone battery-operated units that easily fit into any budget.
