Door Access Card Readers

Door access readers allow employees, residents or vendors to access your building or property. These devices come in a few configurations:

  • Biometric readers
  • Keypad/reader combos, or
  • Standalone readers.

Most doors that are secured by an access control system operate via a:

Exit buttons and magnetic or electronic door locks are also commonly used to secure the doors or gates.

Door access readers are installed at each point of entry that needs to be secured via credentials. These readers can come in different sizes and can be made of ABS plastic or even metal, which makes them extremely vandal-resistant.

Door Access Card Reader System

Door access readers generally incorporate one of three different credential technologies or a combination of them:

  • The most common type of reader will activate and grant access via HID or Wiegand 26 bit credentials.
  • Another common type of access device is a simple keypad which can be programmed to accept a code between four and six numbers.
  • A third type of access device is a biometric reader. This device uses a person’s fingerprint in order to grant access to a door. These devices also come with a USB enroller, which allows administrators to register up to 5 fingers per user. Biometric readers are becoming more popular as pricing has become more affordable, plus there are the savings of not having to purchase or issue cards and key fobs.

Door access combination readers are becoming popular for a few reasons:

  • For reader/keypad combinations, customers enjoy the benefit of being able to program an access code for delivery personnel or short term guests without having to issue them a card or a key fob.
  • Locations looking for a higher level of security will commonly use a reader/biometric device and require both forms of authentication in order to grant access.

    Recognized as a Historic Landmark Resort in the St Petersburg downtown area, we were looking for the best in the surveillance camera and equipment system business. We talked with Luis from Surveillance Technology Inc, and seemed like the right choice for us. He was very professional, honest, promised us prompt response and even took the time to walk the entire property. I am so happy that we choose his company for our surveillance needs and professional advice. Luis has been with us since 2021 and has made several installations. The results have all been outstanding clear picture, easy viewing and storing.I would like to especially point out an installation done this week at our Marina. His wonderful techs led by Jaime, performed a cable installation where a "dinghy" had to be used. Fighting hightide and waves they managed to install approximately 1 mile of cable and deliver the best video viewing on all cameras. I will recommend Luis and his company to anyone looking for surveillance equipment hands down.

    Although very busy, this company sent out their technicians within a reasonable amount of time.. The technicians Jamie and Josh were very professional and friendly. Jaimie identified and rectified my problem I had with on line visualization of the camera views and playback. He also assisted with making sure our phones were able to bring up the same views. One hour later....done. PLUS I received a call the next morning to answer any questions I may have had. Thank you!!! BTW,, Louis is the person that answers the phone and is extremely helpful and phone friendly with curteous professional communication. KUDOS
