Does anyone have experience installing an RFID reader in an existing 3200i keypad entry system?
I have not seen anyone install a reader in an existing Sentinel Systems 3200i keypad. The housing is typically made of metal for that type of keypads, which would mean you’d need to cut out an area for the reader antenna. My guess is that there would not be sufficient room to do this, and that having a box next to or attached to the keypad housing would be a better option. You could contact ThingMagic, which offers small UHF RFID reader modules, or you could look at HF reader modules from FEIG Electronics.
