IDTECK Prox Card Reader


IDTECK makes ID systems used to control access and identify users. This component works with Proximity Readers (RFID card readers). The device is connected to Home Assistant through a serial to ethernet converter (NPort).

An idteck_prox_keycard event is fired whenever a card or key sequence has been entered. The event contains ‘card’ - the card/key sequence, and the ‘name’ of the card reader. Checking ‘card’ against known card numbers can be used as the basis of an entry control system, or as part of a check-in/check-out system.
