Stand-Alone & Wiegand Card Readers, Long Range Vehicle Access Control & Credentials

Proximity card readers allow greater security than keypads and transmitters to open driveway gates. Typically a proximity card is assigned to an individual. Cards can be added or removed from the system. If a card is lost it can easily be deleted thus maintaining security. Card readers can be stand alone, or connected to a larger system. The stand alone card readers contain the user data contained internally. The larger systems send the card information to a telephone entry system, door controller, and or a computer. At the central point the data for the card holder is kept along with usage and privilege instructions and record of usage.

Long range card reader systems are referred to as transponder systems. They operator much like “Fast Track” systems at toll booths. In these system the transponder is attached to the vehicle, and the receiver is near the driveway gate or garage door. This type of system is generally attached to a telephone entry system or centralized control system.
