Proximity card readers have a range on average of up to 25 feet, which is ideal for properties where cars and trucks are regularly accessing the gate so personnel need not leave their vehicle to gain access. A proximity card reader can be mounted directly inside a vehicle so that employees and personnel do not need to carry the access card on their person.

Physical contact is not required when using these cards, and the data can grant access through any type of material except metal – meaning that your building materials (unless they are metal) will not hinder the ability to utilize the proximity card reader for access.
