What is AirID?

AirID® is a combined wireless smart card reader and ID badge holder. It uses AES-256 encryption to ensure secure data transfers and Bluetooth low energy technology for a wireless connection to your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. In companies where smart cards are used, employees will be able to continue using their company ID cards. AirID® is characterized by its discreet design in form of an ID badge holder. You can carry AirID® together with your company ID badge at all times and in contrast to conventional card readers, the smart card remains inserted in the reader all the time.
