Hybrid smartcards

Combining multiple technologies into a single ID card has become one of the most popular ways to save costs and improve efficiency within an organisation. This allows existing systems such as door access, cashless vending and follow-me printing to be retained while new solutions such as two-factor authentication to be rolled out to users.

Dot Origin specialises in this field and is uniquely placed to be able to offer a wide range of different technologies combined into single cards, even at low volumes.

Door access card technologies available include everything from traditional magnetic strips, Watermark, MIFARE, iClass, Prox, DESFire and many more. Available contact smart card modules include ACOS3, SmartCafe and .NET, to name but a few.

Integrated access control

Using a single, centralised system to manage both the physical and logical access rights of each individual provides another powerful way of reducing costs and improving management processes and HR data.

Dot Origin’s flagship product, EdgeConnector, provides a unique solution by leveraging the existing Active Directory user database for managing door access in real time over the IP network.Logo for EdgeConnector, an integrated access control solution
