Card Access refers to a key-less house or building integrated entry system of electronic door locks and control hardware that unlock doors based on the presence of a valid access swipe card, or entry of a valid PIN number on a door keypad.

Traditional mechanical key systems present several common issues such as:

  • Keys can be lost or stolen
  • You are forced to change your locks if a key goes missing
  • You are forced to replace keys if a key goes missing
  • Keys can be copied and freely distributed
  • Doors tend to be left unlocked during the day when people are most likely to access the building
