ProdataKey Pricing and Review

Company Overview

Prodatakey (PDK) provides scalable access control systems for maximum security with real-time updates. Through its cloud node, control panel, and readers, PDK provides complete remote management of access to a facility. Access can be managed from a smartphone or any other internet-connected device. And in the event of a power outage, the system’s backup batteries allow it to continue working.

Hardware

  • Readers: touch readers, card readers and button readers
  • Credentials: key fobs, leather fobs, cards, stickers, wristbands
  • Door Controllers: from the Single io controller to versatile outdoor controllers such as the Pedestal io and Gate io
  • Peripherals: converters, sensors, repeaters.

PDK Software Overview

Pdk.io is an easy-to-use, anywhere, anytime, fully integrated access platform. Through the dashboard you can:

  • Grant access and manage customer systems on the Pdk.io app
  • Manage all customer sites from a global management interface
  • Generate reports or review real-time dashboards on the fly
  • Lockdown globally, control doors and manage credentials mobility.

Advantages

  • PDK access control is an affordable option for small businesses
  • The PDK system is built for scalability
  • The management software pdk.io is well rated by Google (4.5/5) and Apple (4.3/5) users

Disadvantages

  • PDK is a relatively new company and not very well established. As there are few reviews it makes it harder to determine the quality of its service.
  • There are not many integrations so far. However, PDK integrates with ButterflyMX’s video intercom system which is specifically designed to enable safe and seamless visitor access at commercial properties.
  • The user app "pdk touch", contrarily to the management software, is not very well rated by Google (2.6/5) and Apple (3.1/5) users

Looking for an alternative?

Kisi's Cloud Based Physical Access Control System operates purely in the cloud, making it easy to set up and highly scalable as you expand.

Admins are able to easily establish granular controls with group, user and time-based restrictions -- just to name a few. End users have a range of unlocking options, including mobile apps available on Android and iOS, key cards and fobs.

Main takeaways

PDK has a nice range of products including door controllers, touch, pin and fob readers, sensors, and signal boosters, and it has a security software that is recommended by admin users. The company is still young, so it hasn’t built a strong reputation yet and there is room for improvement with regards to integrations and the user app.
