An ‘Access Controller’ is usually installed by a security installer which is then connected to Access Readers. The Access Readers are normally installed next to a door. These Access Readers will either revoke access or allow access by releasing a magnetic door strike (or similar) when an Access Card or Key Fob is presented with the correct security information.

Given the detailed file system within the chip, they are extremely hard to counterfeit with features like application and master keys.
