  4. What do the Cards Look Like
    Our access control cards looks and feels like any credit card: same size, same thickness, etc.

    In fact, they comply to the international ISO7816 credit card format standard.

    Traditionally, access control cards were simple proprietary devices. With the advent of multi-application proximity smart cards, interoperability and multi-sourcing became an issue. Our proximity smart cards are better; they are compatible to the ISO/IEC 14443 standard.

    What this means is that the systems are no longer proprietary. Provided you are given the keys to the cards, you can buy readers from one source and cards from another. We fully support this multi-source approach. In fact, we cooperate with many card vendors to make sure that we are mutually compatible.

    Of course, if you are looking for a one-stop turnkey solution, we can supply you with readers and cards that suit your exacting needs.
