RFID locking system


RFID, the new key

RFID is an acronym for "radio-frequency identification" and refers to a technology where digital data is encoded in RFID tags or smart labels being read by radio waves.

At a basic level, RFID consists of two components: an RFID tag and an RFID reader with an antenna coil. RFID tags contain an integrated circuit and an antenna, used to transmit data to an RFID reader. The reader will convert the modulated radio waves to a more usable form of data. Information collected from the tags will be transferred through a communication interface to the next controller unit, which could be the microcontroller of a battery-powered electronic cylinder or handle or the host computer system connected to the desk reader.

How does digital locking technology benefit from RFID?

RFID technology is very popular among digital locking products because of the number of benefits it brings to the industry.

For example, an RFID tag/transponder can be used as a digital key to open a digital locking device, with the added benefit that the usage history can be tracked.

Having an RFID tag/transponder also means that the access can be personalised. In a company setting, the facility manager is able to invoke access to each employee per transponder, and easily revoke the access in case of a lost transponder or leaving coworkers.

RFID tags are available in different technologies (e.g. 125kHz / 13.56MHz), with different memory sizes and security options. DOM Security has products for all levels and needs. In the highest security options, these kinds of tags are much more secure than other solutions such as mechanical keys, magnetic stripes or others.

DOM Security and RFID products

Our products rely on technology, and our RFID products are leading the way.

DOM Security group has a series of digital locking products that can be operated with RFID transponders or tags, fitted to match your office requirements or your industry. Products such as digital furniture locks, digital handles, cylinders, as well as padlocks.

All products are secured through end-to-end encryption; a system of communication where only the communicating users can read the message. This encryption will prevent the data from being read or secretly manipulated by hackers, internet providers, and even the communication service provider.
