ProdataKey (PDK), distributed locally by SFERE Group, has introduced a new QR reader that offers contactless QR and barcode scanning as part of a PDK access control solution.

The device is designed for use facilities where temporary access to restricted areas is permitted to a changing group of ticketholders or guests – hotels, fitness centres, exhibition centres and many more. The QR reader allows the same guest passes or special VIP tickets presented to a security guard to also be used for electronic access to designated areas.

PDK’s API allows QR and barcodes created by third-party systems to be managed within PDK’s platform, extending the use of those solutions to physical access applications. Pre-event or guest visit, system administrators enter approved QR or barcodes into the PDK management software, individually or importing them as a group, granting holders temporary access to designated doorways, gates, or turnstiles for a desired period.

Proximity cards and PIN codes can also activate the QR readers, allowing authorized staff and vendors to use the same security credentials they use elsewhere in the building. Hospitality workers, cleaning crews, security personnel and other employees with permissions can freely enter areas secured by the QR reader.

The QR reader is designed for installation indoors and outdoors. It features rugged construction, a backlit keypad and an IP65 environmental protection rating. For added security, the device can be configured for 2-factor authentication. #SEN #SENnews #security #electronics
