The card readers below are compatible with the PremiSys access control system as well. With the ability to offer you cards, a card reader and PremiSys, IDenticard truly is a one-stop shop for all of your access control needs.
Available card readers
IDenticard offers some own-brand card readers for access control, as well as various readers from respected vendors:
Types of reader available
- Proximity card readers: Proximity card readers are a common type of card reader, usually mounted on a wall or door frame. Proximity cards or proximity UBand wristbands are scanned in front of the reader to grant access, with some readers having a scan range of up to six inches.
- Contactless MIFARE product technology readers: Compatible with a number of smart cards and the UBand™ wristband, these readers feature an LED light and a buzzer to validate an authorized scan.
- Barcode readers: These readers use infrared technology to read and authorize a variety of different barcodes. Barcode readers can be used for both access control and purchasing.
- Magnetic stripe readers: These readers require that cards be swiped through the reader. Magnetic stripe readers can be mounted both horizontally and vertically. Readers for outdoor use should include a protective housing, as moisture can prevent a card from being swiped successfully.
