What is a Proximity Card?

2017-4-25 View:
"What is a Proximity Card?
A proximity card known as prox cards or access control cards,it is a card that works with door access control systems to wirelessly unlock the door, replacing a traditional key and lock. Prox cards make it easy to restrict access to a campus, building, or secured area.

Proximity cards are used in businesses around the world in a wide variety of industries. They are extremely popular with large office buildings, businesses with large campuses and multiple buildings, schools, government offices, and more.

PVC Proximity Cards
PVC Proximity cards are made from durable white PVC. They are the same size and shape as a standard CR80 card.

Composite Proximity Cards
Composite Proximity cards are made from a more durable composite material of PVC and polyester, allowing them to withstand higher temperatures during the card lamination process. They are also the same size as a standard CR80 card.

Printable Proximity Cards
Not all Proximity cards are made from materials that can be printed on. If you need to print on your cards using an ID card printer, look for ones that are made specifically for printing.

Clamshell Proximity Cards
Clamshell Proximity cards are thicker than a standard card, and use two pieces of rigid PVC to sandwich the proximity antenna. Clamshell Proximity cards cannot be printed using an ID card printer because of their size; instead, you can print on adhesive-backed CR79 cards and apply them to the clamshell card.

Magnetic Stripe Cards
These cards have a HiCo magnetic stripe, allowing you to store data on the card. This makes them useful as student ID cards, payment cards, and more.

Key Fobs
These small Proximity cards are designed to fit on your key ring and come with a key ring slot. Although smaller than a traditional prox card, they still work the same.

Adhesive Tags
These adhesive-backed small disks work like a full sized Proximity card, but can be stuck onto another object to turn it into a proximity card. Most often used to convert existing employee ID cards into Proximity cards, these tags can also be stuck on phones, phone cases, and wallets.

        A smart card is a small plastic card containing a computer chip. People use smart cards along with personal identification numbers (PINs) to log on to a network, a computer, or a device. Using a smart card is more secure than using a password because it's more difficult for someone to steal a smart card and learn your PIN than to learn your password.Smart cards are generally issued by information technology (IT) departments in large organizations. To use a smart card, you also need a smart card reader—a device that’s installed in or connected to your computer and that can read the information stored on a smart card.
