Card Reader Overview

Card Reader

An IP Control Card reader determines whether to allow access to a parking facility by reading the customer’s credentials. The reader relies on wireless communication with your car park management system when granting access to the car park. If network connections are unavailable, the IP Control Card reader will communicate through GPRS.


The IP Control Card reader box has a sleek design that attaches to any parking facility surface. Besides, it is compatible with any system in place in the car park. Since it transmits its information through wireless communication, you can access the system from your website on any computer.


IP Control Card readers communicate with the card by reading their credentials and taking actions such as allowing or denying access. When a customer approaches the gate and places the card within the reader’s range, it uses radio frequency to transmit the data before determining the course of action. It is useful for improving security by restricting access to various rooms in the facility or controlling access to the parking area. The external compact reader also has a LED display that turns red or green for better visibility.


Since the card reader connects to a network, you can control it from software or web-based applications. You can remotely manage access by limiting a group of individuals from accessing the facility. The card reader is also useful when making cashless payments.


The standard card readers use Mifare and radio frequency transmitters. However, with technology advancing and contactless IDs becoming popular, you can find advanced card reading options.
