RFID Lock Systems - Your Complete Guide
When searching for the best RFID lock system, it can feel a bit overwhelming sorting through all of the options. You have to select the right brand, style, features, and functions for your unique application. So how do you know what will work best for you?
We've put together this guide to help answer your questions about RFID locks. It provides the information needed to determine the best RFID lock system for your specific need or application. Let's start with some basics.
What is an RFID lock system?
RFID (or radio frequency identification) is a popular technology used for various applications, from inventory tracking to payment processing. RFID lock systems are a secure form of access control. They're reliable, and some even offer trackable data.
Compared to other access systems, RFID locks are contactless. In other words, the user doesn't have to touch the reader to unlock the unit. As such, our lock kits come configured to use an RFID card or our app through Bluetooth.
How does an RFID lock work?
RFID readers work by sending and receiving data over radio frequencies. In order to operate as a fully-functional system, each RFID lock requires four things: an RFID reader, a transceiver, RFID tags, and antennas.
The user's credential (a card with an embedded RFID chip, or in some cases, an app) contains a unique identifier that we call a tag. When the credential is close enough to the RFID reader within the lock, the reader reads the tag information from the keycard.
The data is then sent through antennas and transceivers and the RFID lock system accepts or denies the unlock request.
