The router unit facilitates wireless communication to both U-Keys and readers. It is generally ceiling mounted in a camera-like dome and can transmit and receive information at a distance of 300 feet, depending on building structure. The router is connected to the central server via a building's LAN and is energized by Power over Ethernet (PoE). In most installations, routers are installed such that there is an overlap of coverage area, in case one of the units becomes non-functional. The others will pick up the load until repairs can be made.

The main function of the router is to download access control information to the readers from the central server. Once that is done, the router becomes a sentry, overseeing system performance and identifying if there is any fault condition, such as a low battery in a reader or U-Key. Notification of the problem can be sent to the central server and subsequently to the user's email or cell phone.

In addition to the ceiling mounted router, a small wall mounted version is also available that acts as a repeater for areas that cannot have the desired overlapping router coverage. The repeater unit is small and can be plugged into a standard wall outlet for easy, low-cost installation.
