Card readers & peripherals
Readers and credentials are among the most popular access control solutions for commercial facilities. Readers are easy to install, maintain transactional logs, have simplistic style that complements or blends with décor, and can be scaled to match most security or budget needs. dormakaba offers a comprehensive line of readers & credentials through its RCI & Keyscan product brands. The wide selection of premium contactless readers include proximity (125-kHz), smartcard (13.56-MHz), long-range ultra-high frequency (UHF), and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) solutions. This allows operators the flexibility to use multiple credential types in one facility.
Across the spectrum of reader technologies, the following types of credentials can be utilized: mobile credentials, smartcards, smart fobs, smart tags, clamshell cards, printable ID cards, RF transmitters, and HID. RCI and Keyscan readers can also be paired with button keypads.
dormakaba has created a helpful chart for matching readers with its corresponding credentials. If you’re not sure which to choose for your solution, look at the chart in the right-hand sidebar!
