About - CARDLOCK cards are for use with CARDLOCK compact and Switch2 systems. Only one Starter pack should be purchased per site. Any extra cards can be ordered at the same time as the Starter pack. If additional cards are needed for an existing site then the order card from the Starter pack is required.


Installation - The system is enrolled by swiping the Enrolment card from the Starter pack. Further configuration is done using the other cards in the pack.

Door open time card: Sets the amount of time the door is unlocked for.

Fail open release card: Only for use with CARDLOCK compact. Swiping this card reverses the operation of the lock output to make it suitable for operating a fail open release. Swiping this card again reverts operation to fail locked.

Silent operation card: Disables the sounder in the reader. The sounder is enabled by swiping the card again (Compact systems only).


Operation - User cards are supplied in wallets. Each card is packaged with a corresponding paper shadow card. Once installation of the system is complete all user cards are valid and ready to be issued. To issue a user card, remove it from the wallet and write the name of the user on its corresponding shadow card. The user may now use their card to gain access. This process is repeated for all users. If a card needs to be invalidated, the corresponding shadow card is removed from the wallet and swiped through any relevant readers on site. This invalidates the card.

Magstripe cards are expected to last for 10,000 operations when used in normal conditions.

Order card: This is required when ordering additional cards for a site.
