Similarly to swipe card security systems, proximity readers are a convenient way of granting access to individuals if they are in hold of their cards. Because of its contactless technology, proximity card readers use a fob or entry card to store access restrictions and individual identification.
These devices transmit a signal to a reader which allows access if the person is authorised. Once read, produces a sound to indicate the card has been read. They are also able to issue detailed reports with what areas of your business individuals have visited and at what time. This can reduce the chances of fraud and make it harder for intruders to gain access to restricted areas.
Like other access control systems, proximity readers are a means to secure parts of your business and allow access to authorised personnel only. They can be fully integrated with your security system to offer a wider protection structure. This could mean an integration with CCTV cameras and audible intercom systems.
