    What is Key Fob Access System?

    For any Commercial or Multitenant Property, it’s important to include state-of-the-art security and access control; it’s one of the features that can add a great deal of value for owners, tenants, and clients. Business owners realize that having the right security system helps to protect both personnel and assets, and access control systems are gaining in popularity, with a 6% increase in investment in these systems expected by 2021. Today’s technology provides numerous possibilities, from more familiar card entry systems to biometric or cloud-based solutions that can be accessed by smartphone. Access control solutions consultants in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) can help you to determine the best fob system for your project, and customize it for maximum security and convenience.

    How Fob Access Systems Work

    The electronic fob system uses a wireless signal to allow fobs and cards to communicate with the access reader. The key card is pre-programmed, and if it offers the right credentials, the access reader will command the door to unlock. When using the door fob system, there are three stages involved.

    • Present your credentials The first step is to provide credentials to the access reader. In most cases, the access reader is located next to the door. For a swipe card, swipe it through the access reader. For a touchless RFID key fob, you just need to hold the key fob close to the reader.
    • Credentials are verified The door fob system uses several methods to verify credentials. The method used will depend on the system you are using. Wiegand key cards, for example, uses magnetized wires to store credentials. RFID and proximity cards transmit credentials wirelessly provided the card is within the electric field that is continuously emitted by the access reader.
    • The door is unlocked If the presented credentials are correct, the access reader will unlock the door.

    How to Choose the Right Door Fob System

    There are various considerations when choosing a fob access system. What is the building’s purpose? Is it intended for office or industrial use? Will it be open to the public? Will it have multiple tenants with a variety of security needs? Will it house high-value inventory? A good electronic fob system specialist can walk you through the options available and help you to choose one that will work for all of your requirements.


    • Convenient for tenants – Tapping a fob or card against an access reader is more intuitive than having to fumble around with physical keys.
    • More tracking data for the staff – The building’s staff will be able to monitor which doors have been opened and who opened them. This enhances security.
    • Easy administration – If a tenant loses their fob or card, the lost access card can be deactivated. This is more convenient than having to replace the entire lock.
    • Effective for elevators – The fob system is the most effective solution for preventing unauthorized tenants or visitors from accessing restricted floors.

    “A very tricky job in a church on 100 years old door which meant we had to keep wires and drilling to a minimum. Our music school students needed entry during specific hours without interfering with the lessons which required a fob entry system with schedules for students allowing them access only during business hours.”

    “We had access control pros install for us Brivo access control system with Bluetooth readers on 7 of our doors, Philip was
    helpful in recommending a system for us, and arranging for a product demo which was very useful for making our final
    decisions. We had few other companies to choose from but neither of them showed such level of commitment in helping
    us choose the right system and eager to earn our business, very professional.”
