Also referred to as swipe cards, prox cards, fobs, magstripe cards, and RFID or NFC cards, keycards
help restrict access to specific areas. The keycard grants access control through your electrically-powered doors. A reader will be installed on your doors, and the card holders can gain access by swiping, tapping the card, or inserting the card. This means that you’ll no longer need traditional keys to access your building.
The keycard magnetic stripe or chip is embedded with access credentials that are read by the keycard reader every time access control cardholders Anaheim attempt to unlock a door. If the reader recognizes the unique code on your card, it grants permission. The reader then communicates with the electric door lock and unlocks the door.
Radio frequency identification
or RFID access control cards are often used in commercial spaces. They can be classified depending on the range they can communicate, which can be low, high, or ultra-high, and how communication happens with the reader.
