The basic principle is that the device transmits to the control system the detected code and if it is acknowledged by the system the access is authorized. The stations can have different level of complexity: the basic ones simply detect the code and wait for the main system ack, the more complete ones are similar to computer TCP/IP terminals with data base and webserver onboard.
