Security technologies are continuing to evolve. The keycard sector is no exception. Companies need more security, but also need it to integrate more easily into their lives. More and more keycard solutions are being developed with this line of thinking.
The security industry continues to switch from using legacy technologies to smart card solutions. Unsecure technologies (such as 125 kHz, Proximity and early MIFARE smart card technologies) lack when compared to a more secure smart card solution that use encrypted algorithms (such as DESFire EV2). However, each organization has their own set of challenges.
The challenges smaller organizations face when implementing smart cards solutions are primarily excessive cost and a lack of knowledge about the technology. On the other hand, bigger companies will have concerns about how they can handle the migration and implement new cards. This is especially true when the organization in question has different locations spanning the globe.
While you want a powerful keycard reading solution, you’ll need more than that. Keycard scanners are made much more useful by powerful software solutions to back them up.
Honeywell Pro Series Access Reader/Controller
The Honeywell Pro Series Access Reader uses advanced surface mounting technologies to deliver consistent reliability, regular read range, as well as minimal power consumption all in a package that’s been designed to install easily. It’s also been made to work in a variety of conditions, including the outdoors, as it’s been sealed in a weatherized polycarbonate shell designed to withstand these conditions.
The unit itself uses a single chip processor which receives and then decodes the signal from a key card, then transmits it to the central control panel. After the user’s credentials have been verified by the database, the control panel will take action if the user matches the information in the database.
One of the biggest strengths of this option is its sheer versatility. It’s compatible with dozens of security products and accessories, meaning it will seamlessly integrate into your existing security programs. This versatility extends into working natively with other forms of security, including alarms, fire safety, and CCTVs just to name a few.
The sheer flexibility combined with the durability makes the Honeywell Pro Series Access Reader one of the best choices you can make when trying to secure your organization using a keycard access system.
