Essential Info

Prevent unauthorized people from entering buildings or rooms with a keyless access control system that only unlocks when it recognizes an authorized user's driver's license, credit card, ATM card or any other card with a magnetic stripe! Up to 100 authorized users (expandable to 1,000) can unlock the door with a single swipe of a pre-designated card. No keys or PINs required! Rated for over one million card swipes


What's Included

  • Magnetic Card Reader
  • Screws
  • Warranty
  • More Info

    The system is perfect for protecting homes, businesses or institutional buildings (i.e. clinics, schools, museums, etc.). It installs onto any door equipped with an electromagnetic lock or doorstrike (sold separately).

    Programming individual cards takes just seconds! You can also de-activate cards just as fast, in the event an authorized user loses a card, or if you decide to deny access at a later date (i.e. a fired employee).

    The length of time you want the door to remain unlocked after a successful swipe is adjustable (anywhere from 0.5 to 5,000 seconds). You can also choose how the system responds in the event of a power outage: fail safe (unlocked when power is removed) or fail secure (locked when power is removed). EEPROM memory retains all programming and card data when the unit is not powered.

    The Magnetic Card Reader requires 12VAC or 12VDC and comes with 10 ft. of black, white, gray twin flex cable, and enough supplies to program 100 cards. To control higher current loads (beyond the 1/2 amp the controller can directly control), use the #7278 Single Relay Board, which handles up to 10 amps at 125VAC.

    Fully waterproof and backed by a 2-year manufacturer's warranty. Compatible with any standard Track II magstripe card. Works with all 12V doorstrikes and deadbolts offered by Smarthome (doorstrikes and deadbolts sold separately).

    Just what my American Legion post needed. Installed and programed easily. Wish track 2 encoded cards came with it.Smarthome didn't have them,so we got them from for $70/100 cards.I programed the first 100 shadow&track 2 cards and handed them out when the members paid their dues.Works great that way.Also, the reader came with a 12v transformer- they say "optional"

    Easy to wire in. Easy to program. Easy to use. Yup! It gets my 5 stars. Harvey Gordon

    The card reader works great. The only thing I would chage or the instructions on how to set up the card. The current instruction are somewhat misleading and gave me the impression that the cards that were ordered with the reader where the ones that actually open the door. Finally, we called th manufacturer and it was all cleared up and running in a matter of minutes.
