Any suggestions for an ID Card/security token system? We have a thumblock system which was cool for a while but it in subzero temperatures it's useless...and I have other reasons I just don't want to go into.

Anyway Id card systems are pretty common. We would need a system of hardware for the doors, some ID making machine, we want to put our pictures on the id cards, maybe AD integration would be cool???

We also want to put some other info on the cards like job title, group, ext. Some other things that would be nice would be scheduled lock out time for certain groups..etc. I'm not familiar with this but I'm betting there are some sirious vets out there when it comes to swipe id cards.

OH AND IF THERE IS AN ALARM INTEGRATION SYSTEM WITH A PHONE DIALER IT WOULD MAKE ME THE HAPPIEST SYSTEM ADMIN IN THE WORLD!!

I hate our alarm and our phone dialer is a P.    O.    S.

Does such a thing exist? We have 75 total users currently at 3 locations....we are growing quickly though. We arn't looking for a 100k device, but even 10k would be plausible....

This isn't really specific to SBS or servers in general
What you are talking about is access control systems.  They certainly can do everything you're looking to do.  I work for a large manufacturing company during the day and we use a similar system for time collection.  Employee's have a card that the pass by a data collection device which sends the clock in and clock out information to a server for processing for payroll

Once of my customers for my side business is a security company and I assist them from time to time with complex networking issues.

Find a locksmith in your area who deals with computer based access control systems.  They should be able to offer you a wide variety of options

My recommendation remains the same.  Talk to any high end locksmith who also does access control systems.  Alarm companies such as ADT also provide these systems
