When you’re putting in an access control system, you’re presented with plenty of options, which type of ID badge to choose, where to put access points, or how you want to authenticate cardholders.
RFID credentials in Physical Security
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. RFID technology makes use of electromagnetic waves to capture and read transmitted data; the information is electronically stored on RFID credential, and that RFID credential’s chip is activated to share its information when it’s near an RFID reader. These RFID credentials can be detected from several feet away by the receiver, making them useful in access control for buildings with many cardholders.
The RFID technology is popularly used in access control systems to allow only the entry of authenticated and authorized personnel to secure spaces. Elsewhere, RFID technology is also applied in several other fields, such as supply chain inventory, gate control in RFID parking system, retail checkout lines and even race timing.
RFID reader in Door Access Control Systems
The most common use of RFID reader and RFID credentials in access control is indoor entry systems for personnel. RFID credentials are applied on a very basic level as the identification badges of the workers for any company or industry that uses access control systems. The RFID applications for personnel identification normally operates at low frequency or high frequency, almost 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz for badge detection.
Uses Gen 2 UHF RFID credentials for RFID access control, so it offers better range and readability (up to 25 feet) than HF Door Access Control systems. The UHF Gen 2 tags RFID credentials are less expensive than HF, for a faster return on investment, with a wide range of programming options for more control and better customer experience.
Each door RFID reader is equipped with a small antenna, which sends its own radio waves with the purpose of detecting any RFID tag or card within its range. This range can vary for each reader depending upon the frequency of the radio waves it emits, anywhere from about 10 centimeters to around one meter. The RFID reader decodes the unique stored information being emitted from the corresponding RFID credentials badge and sends the signal to its host software, which either grants or denies access to the user.
DO RFID reader manufacturer provides the durable RFID badge credentials, anti-wear, and anti-tear. RFID reader with good performance able exposed to rain, snow, and extreme temperatures.
Our RFID credentials are the ultimate in security ID for any event, conference, or expo. The wide range of RFID Credentials (RFID Cards, RFID Key-Fobs, and RFID wristbands, etc.) in the most common RFID Smart Card/Reader requirements.
