I'm doing some research.
We are looking for more information about a door lock system that can be reprogrammed to a different code every year, and contains a timer to limit access hours (this can be the same set of hours each day).

If possible we would like to use a lock that does not require new cards (or readers) every time the codes are changed.

If you have a system that works well at your club, I'd like to hear about it.
(no club names, of course). It's ok to contact me offline.
Thanks.
 
Sharon F&G used ibutton locks and a computer program. I've been gone from there for almost 7 years, but I wasn't aware of any access problems other than a lightning strike frying said equipment.

Ames R&P had that same sort of setup and had many problems with it over the 3 years I was a member, eventually disabling it. Not sure if it was equipment or setup/maintenance problems. I quit there last year, so don't know anything further about the system or its problems.

Braintree R&P uses a cardkey system much like many employers use. Seems to work well, and I can refer you to someone if you need more info about it (this is one of my clubs). The club just changed all sorts of equipment, although our cards stayed the same. My cardkey says Motorola Indala Corporation. Check out this for more info:

There are several systems available that use a card or badge to unlock the door. The nice thing about these is that he cards can be added or deleted at any time (new or leaving members) and there is never an issue with an access code getting into the wrong hands. Because the system is programable, different levels of access can be granted to different cards.

I'm a security specialist, and have used systems like this for years now. If it's something that looks interesting, I can put you in touch with vendors.
 
We have had very good luck with CorKey

You can have several combinations on a card for different levels of security or access to different parts of the property. We have one for outdoor range for probationary members and a second added when you earn the use of the indoor range all on one card.

Great system but get the metal cards. The last longer. They are about the size of a military dog tag.
