What Are Proximity Cards And Tags?
If you are looking for a time-saving solution for individual entry from a gate or door, access control systems can help you use the latest technology. Through proximity cards, key fobs, clamshell cards, magnetic stripe cards, or micro-proximity tags, it’s quick to tap and go. These solutions fit nicely in an office environment where you’ll need maximum protection for employees and customers.
Plus, with a system like this, you won’t need to worry about employee exit or entry early in the morning or later in the evening. As soon as the gate or door closes, it’s locked and can only be opened with the card or tag device. Pair a proximity card with your system to offer a better solution to individuals entering a building.
