RFID Keys from Kaba ADS Upgrade Existing Systems

Multifamily housing locksmiths can now use InSync RFID Keys from Kaba ADS Americas to upgrade an access control system without replacing existing perimeter hardware. The dual credential InSync keys offer a single electronic key solution for use on standalone locks and hard wired/telephone entry systems that are commonly used on perimeter doors. InSync locks are suited for market rate, mixed use, garden style, mid-rise, luxury, student, and senior living facilities, and can be used in retrofit applications. The keys come standard with HiTag technology and can also carry a secondary PROX, MIFARE®, or DESFire® credential that allows for a single RFID key integration across all current access control systems. Users select and order keys based upon the operating protocol of their existing perimeter door access control system. With one InSync RFID key, property management eliminates the need for multiple credentials to access different parts of the property. In addition, because properties can preserve their current, familiar hard wired access control systems, they can maximize their initial investments in both product and training. An InSync system with dual credential keys will also operate with other Kaba access control products such as E-Plex® 5600/5700 standalone locks.
