Adding the Card to the System: The card is added to the system by presenting it to a Paxton10 desktop reader.
Customising the Card: Paxton10 ISO proximity cards are fully customisable to your business’ branding and arrive ‘blank’ ready to be used with any plastic card printer.
Using the Card: Access is granted by holding the card close to the reader. The user’s credentials are checked, and the user is granted or denied access according to their permissions in the Paxton10 system. Remember, these cards can be used as ID cards, with card and user information stored in an encrypted, password-protected sector. They are available in standard credit card sizes and can be printed on using a universal card printer.
