What is a stand-alone access control keypad?
A stand-alone access control keypad is an all-in-one access control system which gives you a low cost solution for managing and securing a door or entry way at the home or business. The control and management of an entry way is achieved by giving visitors their own unique credentials that must be used to enter a particular location. The credentials can be authorized by using a proximity card or key fob that have the credentials embedded inside them, or a password code can be typed right on the keypad. Once the correct credentials are received by the keypad or proximity reader, the system will send a signal to the electronic lock verifying it is safe to open. A stand-alone access control system is completely programmed and managed through the keypad or reader which heavily simplifies the entire installation process. Installing a stand-alone access control keypad is relatively simple, and is really the fastest and most cost effective way to implement an access control strategy.
