We are very optimistic about the prospects for this functionality in the Residential market
Manorville, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
Club Sentry, Inc. announced today the integration of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) into their club management software check-in functionality. Consisting of an RFID Proximity Sensor and member held Radio Transmitter Key Fobs, the pieces combine to send the member ID number to Club Sentry as the member approaches, allowing Club Sentry to determine member eligibility and open an electronically locked door or turnstile.
"We are very excited about integrating this technology into our software and product offering," said Scott Rodgers, President of Club Sentry, Inc., "It gives our customers the extremely useful options they have been asking for in secure Access Control and presents Club Sentry with a number of new opportunities for introducing its software to new market segments."
"The RFID Proximity Sensor and Key Fobs are a more secure alternative to a bar code reader and bar coded ID cards at the check-in desk, in that it cannot be copied and re-printed like a bar coded id card," continued Mr. Rodgers. "Using the RFID system becomes a real advantage when used with the Club Sentry Electronic Entry Module to open a turnstile or electronically controlled door lock, granting 24 hour entry to qualified members without the need for a dedicated employee."
Current Club Sentry check-in hardware options also include the Bar Code Reader & ID Cards, Numeric Keypad, Fingerprint (Biometric), Photo ID and Electronic Remote Entry (opens turnstile or electronically locked door) or manual check-in by front desk personnel.
"We are very optimistic about the prospects for this functionality in the Residential market," said JD Williams, Vice President of Club Sentry, Inc. "With the addition of the proximity technology, we can handle entry to the residential club as well as entry to the property, whether unlocking a door or opening a gate. The Club Sentry Billing Module allows monthly fees, common charges and fines to be assessed and collected by invoice, credit card or EFT."
