In an age prioritizing security, technology strides have led to innovative solutions for safeguarding crucial areas. The PL100 by Pyramid Time Systems is a security lock equipped with an RFID card reader, ensuring access control while simplifying administrative tasks. This system not only bolsters security measures but also utilizes the same cards and key fobs used for Pyramid’s software-based proximity time clocks, offering a dual solution for access management and timekeeping.
Proximity-based locks represent a significant departure from traditional key-based systems. Operating via proximity cards or fobs, these locks provide users a convenient and secure way to access restricted areas. Unlike keys, which can be lost, duplicated, or misappropriated, proximity cards offer heightened security and control. Employees can effortlessly tap their cards near the reader for access, eliminating the need for physical keys and associated risks.
The RFID cards employed with Pyramid’s proximity time clocks can be used with the PL100. Already familiar to employees for timekeeping purposes, these cards can be loaded into the stand-alone PL100. This allows the cards to serve a dual function, giving employees the convenience of using a single card for both timekeeping and accessing secure areas.
The adaptability and convenience of proximity-based locks extend beyond traditional office setups. They find utility across diverse industries such as healthcare, education, corporate offices, and manufacturing plants where controlling access to specific areas is vital. The PL100 unit accommodates various door widths in indoor settings and is adaptable for left or right handles.
Pyramid Time Systems’ PL100 proximity-based lock elevates security measures while streamlining administration. It stands as a standalone lock capable of utilizing existing access cards used for proximity timekeeping or other solutions. Leveraging the familiarity of RFID cards for both time clocks and access control enhances security protocols and operational efficiency. With ongoing technological advancements, solutions like the PL100 pave the way for a safer and more efficient future in access management.
