What is a Access Control Card?

     Access control card is a contactless card that can be customized to look like staff ID cards with pictures, names and more. It's mainly to prevent the entry and exit of foreign personnel and improve local security. The access control card is mainly used for your employees, students, visitors, or members to enter or unlock a door. In addition, the access control card must be equipped with an access control system.

ID card is the most widely used card in the access control system, with the characteristics of long reading distance, high market share and relatively mature technical practice. However, since ID access control card cannot store consumption data, it can only be used to open the door by swipes.
