Proximity technology is sought after for ensuring high-level access control – but, with a multitude of standard to customizable options, prox cards can be complicated to order.

To help customers understand their choices and options, and to simplify the ordering process, ID Card Group has provided two popular how-to resources: How to Program HID Proximity Cards and the HID Prox Card Programming Checklist.

Customers can access these resources via the ID Card Group Blog or from the Proximity Card section of the website.

Proximity cards, also known as Prox cards or access control cards, are contactless ID cards or keyfobs containing programming that is “read” by a card reader to control and secure physical access to a site, facility, or building.

Inside each card or keyfob is a chip containing specific numerical programming and a coiled antenna, which increases the range at which the card can be read.

The contactless, integrated circuit technology allows security data or payment information to be transmitted securely from a distance – without card swiping.
