The HID ProxPoint Plus 6005 is a proximity card reader manufactured by HID Global. It is designed to read 125kHz proximity cards or fobs and can be used for access control applications such as door entry systems. The reader features a weatherproof and tamper-resistant design, and can be configured for various modes of operation including “always on” and “request-to-exit”. It also has a built-in audible and visual LED indicator for status and programming.

HID proximity access control is a type of access control system that uses proximity cards or fobs to grant or deny entry to a specific area. The cards or fobs contain a small radio frequency (RF) chip that transmits a unique identification number to a proximity card reader. The reader then compares the identification number to a list of authorized numbers stored in its memory. If the number matches, the reader sends a signal to an access control panel, which in turn unlocks a door or gate.

HID proximity access control systems are widely used in commercial and industrial settings for controlling access to buildings, parking garages, and secure areas. They are considered a secure and convenient method of access control because the cards or fobs do not need to be inserted into a slot or swiped through a reader, and can be easily carried on a keychain or in a wallet. They can also be programmed to grant access to specific areas at specific times and can be easily updated or revoked as needed.
