How Does a Key Card Work?

With a proximity card reader system, the key card works by using a low 125 kHz radio frequency, encrypted with a unique number associated with each card that allows access when placed on the reader. When tapped against the reader, the system quickly reads the numbers and compares them to an internal database, allowing those that are approved to enter. The system is simple, quick, and convenient - perfect for locations with multiple authorized visitors.

FAQ: Professional Proximity Card Door Entry Installation

What happens if you lose your key card?

A convenient benefit of a proximity card reader system is that cards can easily be replaced and deactivated in case they are lost or stolen. Our team at Forbel can do this process for you, removing a lost card from the system, so no unwanted visitors gain access and replacing the card with a new number that allows entry.

How does a reader interact with a door lock?

The reader utilizes a low 125 kHz radio frequency to read the unique number associated with a card. When the card is tapped against the reader, it reads the number associated with the card, checking against an internal database to allow entry to those with approved numbers. This is a very quick, secure system!

How much does it cost to install proximity card systems?

The cost of proximity card door entry systems depends on the location and its needs. If your property has just one door, the installation of one reader will be much cheaper than that of a multi-door system. However, our team at Forbel will work within your needs and budget to find the right, most effective solution. For an estimate, contact us today!
