What is a Proximity Key Fob?

A proximity key fob, also known as a proximity key or smart key, is a small electronic device that allows you to unlock doors and gain access to a secure area without physically inserting a key into a lock.

The fob emits a radio frequency signal that is detected by a receiver in the vehicle or access control system. When the fob is within range of the receiver, typically a few feet or less, the system will recognise the signal and grant access.

In some cases, the fob may need to be pressed or waved in front of a specific location, such as a sensor on a door, to trigger the signal. Proximity key fobs are convenient, secure, and easy to use, making them a popular choice for vehicle and building access control.

At AP Higgs we offer a full service from designing an installation, supply and fit to replacing new key fobs and reprogramming.

Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating more security risks
