What are Proximity Card Readers?

Proximity Card Readers use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology, which refers to a wireless system comprised of two components: tags and readers. The reader is a device that has one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals back from the RFID tag. Tags use radio waves to communicate their identity and other information to nearby readers.

Proximity Card Readers for Employee Management

Organizations use Proximity Card Readers to restrict access to office premises (access control) and also to record employee attendance (time attendance). Proximity Card readers are installed where access should be recorded or restricted, and Proximity cards are issued to employees who are authorized to access the location.
