From magnetic stripe, to proximity technology, to aptiQ™ smart credentials (MIFARE® and MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 technology), aptiQ™ readers are capable of interfacing with nearly any credential type. Our readers use an open architecture platform designed to work with industry standards and common access control system interfaces. Additionally, the ability to pair smart, proximity, or magnetic stripe technology with keypad use provides for even higher security in any facility.
It is a common misconception that migrating from mag stripe to proximity technology or onward to smart cards is a laborious task requiring a high initial investment. aptiQ Multi-Technology readers make these transitions easy and affordable. The ability of aptiQ readers to read both proximity and smart credentials means that you can spread out your investment over time, liberating your budget for your other business needs.
