The Advantages of HID Access Cards
ID cards, once the wave of the future are now becoming commonplace in providing varying levels of security for access control systems. They replace the need for punching in an access code and work in a more efficient and convenient manner. There are many different kinds of smart cards. HID access cards are among the most popular.
Applications for HID Access Cards
The HID Proximity and FlexSmart MIFARE card is a combination HID access card, which blends smart card technology with all of the features of the HID proximity access card. This is a contact-less card which can be used for public transportation, cashless vending, event ticketing, photo ID cards, system access, customer loyalty and access control to restricted locations.
How HID Access Cards Work
The cards have the capacity for several different applications. They contain a variety of circuits, an internal antenna and a programmed code which makes it possible to program hierarchies into the system. They send a signal, which is easily read by a compatible card reader without the need for contact swiping or scanning. New cards may be added to the existing access control system for any new additions to your team. Multiple types of data may be stored within one credential with HID access cards, which makes them portable for simultaneous usage.
Your Information is Safe and Secure
They only function with a compatible reader, which prevents data from being obtained by other sources. Complete satisfaction of the authentication process is the mechanism that allows the data stored within the card to be accessed and read. This dual action is completed within the card and the access control system.
The technology that allows for the multi-functional capacities of these cards has implications for future applications. As technology advances in this field, there is a high likelihood that the capacity for storing data may be increased to accommodate a host of other applications. Thus this will enhance security further by improving the way government and health care agencies distribute and access information.
