A proximity card is an easy way to control who can enter a building. In the past locks and keys were used to secure buildings, but the shift has been moving towards proximity card technology. It’s inconvenient to continue re-issuing keys when there is employee turnover, etc. which is why more organizations today are moving towards smart technology cards. In addition, traditional keys can be easily duplicated which can create a greater risk of an unauthorized individual gaining access. This is the reason proximity ID cards are increasing in popularity and IDSecurityOnline has been at the forefront of this transition. They are helping customers quickly get their hands on programmed technology cards at a time that they need it most. With people returning to the office and schools post-pandemic, the demand is up for proximity cards and the supply has been low.
IDSecurityOnline wanted to help and developed a simplified approach for customers to get fully programmed proximity cards in record time. IDSecurityOnline has streamlined the process with its line of QuickShip cards that is allowing organizations to issue proximity cards to employees, tenants, students, or visitors on demand by printing and programming all cards in-house. All QuickShip cards are ISO compliant, fully compatible with all 125Hkz readers, and available in a multitude of formats including 26-bit, 34-bit, and 37-bit.
Most QuickShip orders ship within 2 business days to help clients get the cards that they need whenever they want them. IDSecurityOnline’s line of cards features a graphics quality surface optimized for photo ID printing and includes cards with and without a magnetic stripe. Customers also have options to order cards in PVC and composite PVC/PET construction.
A proximity card is a type of radio-frequency identification (RFID) card that includes an antenna and an ID chip embedded within the card. This card interacts with proximity reader technology to grant access by capturing information. Typically referred to as a smart card, this type of card stores encoded data of an individual. It can be read without inserting it into an actual card reader, making it super convenient by being able to keep them in a wallet or purse. This type of card can also have a magnetic stripe and is extremely durable; making it a great option for all types of organizations.
A proximity card contains a pre-defined number that’s identified by a proximity card reader programmed to ‘read’ it. This number is then transmitted to a computer system that decides whether to grant them access into the building. It all depends on the pre-defined access level, which then only unlocks the door if the user has the proper credentials to enter the building. Moving forward we will see an increase in organizations utilizing programmed technology cards to help secure their premises. The goal is to work smarter with smart technology cards and IDSecurityOnline will continue to produce and ship them in record time. Find out more about QuickShip cards now!
