Every good rfid installation is only as good as the research and time you put towards investigating to find the right equipment for your needs.

  • Rfid key fob – This is your rfid key, that contains a unique code that connects to the special software that validates keys to grant access past the doors in restricted areas.
  • Door Sensor – Door sensors allow the software and the person monitoring the software to know if a door has been opened.
  • Access card / fob readers – This is where you tap or swipe a magnetic stripe card or a rfid fob / card to gain access. The readers are usually connected to the main system and allow for the fob /card to communicate with the main system.
  • Intercom – This a device that allows guests and tenants to communicate. They are usually installed in the main entrance areas.
  • Security cameras – for a extra layer of security, you can add security cameras to your installation
  • Alarm System – some rfid systems contain a alert system. If certain events occur the alarm will be triggered.
  • Battery Backup / Alternative power source – It is extremely important to have backup measures in case of power failures. If a power failure occurs and you have no alternative power source the Rfid key fobs will not get authorized.
  • Exit buttons – Due to fire regulations in many city’s. You can not use a key or fob to exit a building. Exit buttons or emergency door openers are installed for a fast easy exit.
