Swipe card readers offer a low-cost flexible solution to controlling entry to premises or different areas of a building. They contain a magnetic strip which stores unique identification and entry access permissions.
They operate by swiping the card through a dedicated reader located outside each entry point. Utilising your register of card holders, you can allow restricted access of personnel to different locations within your site.
Swipe card readers allow your personnel to access certain areas of your building without the need for further intervention, such as requesting access through an audible intercom. This means that, by having unique permissions on their own individual cards, cards can be automatically programmed to refuse or allow access.
This could be particularly useful if you have a large site, with a great number of personnel throughout it. Programming their cards to allow access to certain areas only can prevent their unrestricted entry.
