Security Technologies Launches aptiQ™ Smart Card from Schlage

Security Technologies holds the world premiere today of its new aptiQ™ (pronounced ap-teek) smart card from Schlage at the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) show in Dallas. aptiQ smart cards from Schlage provide a higher level of security, more convenience and far greater functionality than proximity cards, for a comparable price. In addition, aptiQ smart cards have the ability to manage access, payments and many other functions.

“Organizations need smart credentials that work for them today and give them the flexibility to add applications in the future,” says Raj Venkat, Security Technologies vice president, marketing. “After all, today, it is simply too easy for unauthorized people to duplicate and use another person’s proximity card. aptiQ smart cards from Schlage provide them with a way to increase the security of their access control solution today, while providing a pathway to other smart credential applications, ranging from company cafeteria charges to checking out equipment.”

According to Raj, besides access control, popular smart credential applications include identification, supplies check-out verification, company cafeteria charges, access to recreational facilities, charge privileges at various locations, admission to events, transit passes, access to services, bankcards and holding a biometric template.
