Card Access

A Card Access system allows you to selectively grant or restrict access to a building or location using an electronic authentication system instead of mechanical means, such as regular locks and keys. The systems can be easily integrated into your security system.


The main types of readers are:

  • Password or PIN readers
  • smart card or key fob proximity readers
  • biometric scanners such as fingerprint verification systems

Card Access systems provide many benefits to a business, such as:

  • Deactivate lost keys: Lost keys can be deactivated to prevent unauthorized people from accessing your property. They are very difficult to duplicate, unlike actual keys. Forgetting or losing a key no longer wastes the time of the employee and the maintenance team. Also, users cannot easily share keys to allow entry into spaces they are not authorized to enter.
  • No need to change locks: You can prevent having to change locks when keys are lost or an employee is terminated, or leaves your company.
  • Monitor: You can monitor the entry history to keep a log of everyone who enters the building, which cannot be done with regular mechanical keys. Stringent privacy laws regulate data access, and a Card Access system can ensure these regulations are strictly followed. For example, HIPAA laws regulate access to medical records, etc.
  • Protection: You can provide protection for inhabitants of your building, as well as the property from intruders at all times.
  • Customizable access: Access can be customized for each user. You can allow them access into only the areas they need or are authorized to access. Also, you can determine specific times and dates to allow entry, to prevent entry at restricted times such as after-hours or on holidays if you choose. User access can also be controlled according to the role of the user (i.e., company-wide access for managers or executive team members). Temporary access can be set for contractors or temporary employees (i.e., July to September for a temporary employee).
  • Remote access: You can allow provide remote access to the property to allow entry to individuals even if you are not at the location. This ensures the security of your building, no matter where you are. You can give access to your building for contractors for example, or anyone else needing to enter the building when you are not physically available to open the door.
  • One access card: You only need one access card. Multiple areas can be accessed with the same card, preventing the need for duplicate cards to be created.
  • Sensors: Sensors built in prevent doors being propped open by sounding an alarm if the door remains open or ajar too long.
  • Elevator access: Elevator access can also be regulated in addition to doors.
  • Regulate entry: All types of entry can be regulated including: doors, parking areas, turnstiles, etc.
  • Flexible & Scalable: The systems are flexible and scalable. You can easily give users access to additional areas without having to provide them with extra keys. Adding new users is equally as simple.
  • Photo identification: Access cards can be equipped with photos of the user to give an extra layer of security.
