Using HID Proximity card technology has kept our business safe and secure for the last few years. It offers exactly what we need as a business to securely control and access our facilities. It is simple to use, just wave the card in front of a magnetic reader! It is also small and easily stored in our employees wallets and/or purses. I want to take some time to talk to you about the different types of HID proximity devises and discuss their similarities and differences.
HID proximity cards can be an integral part of any secure facility. It allows for controlled access for employees and the ability to restrict access to employees and visitors to restricted areas. This is done using a central computer system that is designed to recognize what card the magnetic reader is reading. I then gains access to a database that tells it to allow/disallow entrance to the area. Every Proximity Cards have and a micro chip that is programmed to contain and track various types of information. Every device is uniquely encoded to control access to the area where it is needed and more importantly not needed. Some cards/devices can have custom magnetically programmed information that will allow the user to swipe their card if need be.
HID offers a wide range of secure access devices. They have key fob devices the 1346 ProxKey III that can be attached to a key ring. They make a tag with an adhesive backing, the 1391 MicroProx Tag, this allows users to place the tag on an existing ID Card. The 1386 ISOProx II card offers proximity technology with photo identification capability on a single card. The 1326 ProxCard II is a traditional proximity card. The DuoProx II card combines multiple technologies: proximity, magnetic stripe and photo identification technologies on a single access control card.
The cards can be programmed, customized and sent to you by an authorized reseller. If you have a need to produce your own proximity devices you can purchase an ID Card Printer that is designed to do card encoding, magnetic stripe encoding and print vivid images on the card to allow pictures or any pertinent information to be printed directly onto the card.
