The proximity key is an optional accessory for contact-free arming and disarming of alarm panels, replacing code entry.
To arm or disarm the system, you just hold the chip in front of the alarm panel or control panel. The user no longer needs to remember a PIN code, and this makes authorisation (authentication) on the system much easier. The proximity key is used for easy, convenient arming and disarming of the ABUS Secvest and Terxon alarm systems.
Using proximity technology, the inductor integrated in the key transmits the respective code when it is brought near the receiver. This means that the user can be uniquely authenticated practically as they walk by – without it being necessary for them to enter a PIN or pass the key through a reader. The radio field of the receiver provides the voltage to the proximity key for the code transmission – the key thus functions without its own battery.
Installation and programming
The chip key is trained into the alarm panel. Authorisation is then programmed directly on the alarm panel.
