About - PROXIMITY card packs are for use with PROXIMITY compact and Switch2 systems. The cards are supplied in wallets. An intuitive 'shadow card' system is used for ease of management.


Installation - When installing the system the first card pack is added by presenting the Enrolment card from that pack. Subsequent packs are added by presenting the original Enrolment card followed by the Enrolment card from the new pack. Further configuration is done using the other cards in the pack.

Door open time card: Sets the amount of time the lock is energized for.

Fail open release card: Only for use with PROXIMITY compact. Presenting this card reverses the operation of the lock output to make it suitable for operating a fail open release. Presenting this card again reverts operation to normal.

Silent operation card: Disables the sounder in the reader. The sounder is enabled by presenting the card again (Compact systems only).


Operation - User cards are supplied in wallets. Each card is packaged with a corresponding shadow card. Once installation of the system is complete all user cards are valid and ready to be issued. To issue a user card, remove it from the wallet and write the name of the user on its corresponding shadow card. The user may now use their card to gain access. This process is repeated for all users. If a card needs to be invalidated, the corresponding shadow card is removed from the wallet and presented to any relevant readers on the site. This invalidates the card.
