How Key Card Reader Works

How a Key Card Reader Works

A key card reader is installed on the door.  To gain access, you tap, swipe, or insert (depending on the type of reader being used) the key card in the card reader. 

There is an access credential embedded on the keycard magstripe, or as a chip in the card itself. Once the reader recognizes the access credential, it then communicates with the door lock. 

The smart access control reader will be wired to an electric lock on your door and it will send a signal to the lock to start an unlock event. With a good system, the whole process takes less than a second.

NXT Proximity Readers

NXT Proximity Readers

NXT Readers provide a number of advantages over traditional Wiegand-output readers:

  • They communicate via RS-485, and so are supervised by the controller so that you always know their status
  • Cabling distance from the controller is doubled - up to 1000 ft (300m) - providing more flexibility in installation
  • Installers are able to use shielded Cat5/6 cable, thus reducing the cost of installation
  • Readers can be configured to read either NXT or HID cards

Besides Keri System, we also provide key card readers of other renowned brands such as Paxton,, 2GIG, Bosch, Brinks, DMP Electronics, etc.

Benefits of Using Key Card Reader

  • You can configure and reconfigure access to your property using the same card. Whereas with metal key, new keys need to be issued and old keys have to be returned.
  • Key cards require a very sophisticated technology to create, so the chances of someone making a copy of a key card are very low. 
  • Each card’s information is stored in a database. So if someone loses their card, you can remove that card from the database, making the actual card useless for anyone who might find it.
  • The clearance levels of individual cards can be altered instantly by a network operator. This means if you need to give temporary access to someone, for example, a guest staying at your home for a time, you can do that quickly and efficiently.
  • Key Cards can easily fit into your wallet or cardholder and provides remote deactivation capability
  • With key card readers, you can easily provide access to multiple doors, can provide restrictions for certain times, certain access levels, or even certain numbers of unlocks.

Our Customers Reviews

I highly recommend this company! They are always quick to resolve any issue or question I may have. The techs are friendly, quick, and always on time. It's rare to find good customer service anymore, but they are top notch!

- Amie Westfall

Great group of people. My alarm system was a pain in the butt and I made it worse with my last minute mind changes. They never missed and beat and took care of my house and did everything that was needed and more! I also no longer have the old outdated key pad I finally have a nice touchscreen!
