Contactless smart card access control is becoming the new standard for security, transportation and identity management systems worldwide


Tensor Smart Cards

Contactless smart card access control systems are starting to become the standard for security, transportation and identity management systems across the world, although some areas are quicker to adopt it than others.

As end users become familiar with the unprecedented combination of security and convenience offered by these products, industry experts are projecting the trend of using credentials for multiple transactions will continue to accelerate, gaining even more traction in the next three to five years.

In any given facility there are multiple openings to secure, and multiple people who need access and helping customers understand their credential options and what credential works best are arguably the most important part of planning and implementing their access control solution.

Contactless smart cards utilize RFID technology, which may appear identical in operation to a proximity card to the average user. However, contactless smart cards have 100 times the information storage capacity, work on a different electromagnetic wave frequency and have far greater data security than a traditional proximity card.
