Essential Info

If your company is like most larger companies, you'll agree that making keys for new employees is not only time and money consuming, it's inconvenient: Changing the locks each time an employee leaves the company just isn't feasible. The Tag-in-a-Bag is a versatile weather-resistant proximity access control unit, designed to limit access to restricted areas while permitting authorized people to enter. Ideal for commercial and industrial applications, the Tag-in-a-Bag access control solution provides authorized control for up to 250 users with two available security levels: Users can either gain access just using the tag, or a PIN code can be used in conjunction with the tag for additional security.


What's Included

  • Keypad
  • 10 tags
  • Mounting hardware
  • User's Guide
  • Programming and installation instructions
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • 8 colored tabs for personalizing tags
  • More Info

    The Tag-in-a-Bag system's proximity readers are based on advanced RFID technology: Each user is assigned a unique encoded proximity key. When a valid proximity key or tag is presented to the reader, which is located outside the protected area, the controller relay activates a magnetic lock or an electromagnetic strike (EMS) that releases the door (magnetic lock and EMS sold separately). A single card can be conveniently programmed to open any combination of doors in the system. If a card is lost or stolen, it can easily be deleted from the system, and a new one can be issued.

    The control unit connects to the frame of your door with an electro-magnetic strike or magnetic lock and operates by either a 12V DC or AC power supply (sold separately). The control unit includes internal non-volatile memory, unaffected by power failure. The internal memory stores up to 250 tags and four-digit PIN codes. This system comes with 10 tags; additional tags are available but sold separately.

    BROWN -- cave creek, AZ   8/6/2007
    I requested customer service for an item that may or may not have been defective. A new one was attempted with the same issues. No effort was made to help me program the product over and above the provided manual. I ended up having to return the item despite my desire to get it working because no person was will to research the issues. Not good.
