Access Control RFID Systems

Access Control RFID systems

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology uses electromagnetic waves to capture and read data wirelessly. Data is stored on an electronic tag that can be attached to an object. The tags can be read from several feet away using a special receiver. RFID systems are used in access control to allow only authorised personnel to pass a barrier.

RFID technology can be used in areas such as:

  • Identification of people
  • Access based security systems
  • Parking facilities
  • Gate and barrier control
  • Tracking goods

RFID Access Control Management

A very common use of RFID systems is to control door entry systems using keyfobs or ID badges with an embedded transponder. Such systems are made up of three main components:

  • RFID Tags
  • RFID Reader
  • Access Management Software


Data about the person holding the ID card is electronically stored on an embedded RFID transponder.

RFID Door Reader

An antenna on the RFID reader sends radio waves to detect if there are any RFID tags within range. The reader decodes the information from the transponder and sends a data signal to the controlling software.

RFID Access Management Software

Special software reads the signal from RFID reader and either grants or rejects access to the card holder.
