Your Access Control Card Readers May Be at Risk of Duplication, But There’s a Solution!

Are you aware of the threat of proximity card duplication and the risks it poses to your school’s security? There is a solution to mitigate this!

Migrating to encrypted cards will allow you to fortify your security.

  • Encrypted keycards cannot be duplicated by copy kiosks or devices bought online, so you don’t have to worry about copies existing in the wrong hands.
  • Card readers can be put into a mode where they will only read encrypted cards, preventing previously duplicated cards from being used.

Protect Your Organization!
If your school district uses proximity cards and you’d like to make the switch to more secure, encrypted cards, our WSIPC Purchasing Program partner, LONG Building Technologies, can help you find the right product and develop a migration plan.

Contact Jim Jamison ( / 206-300-1503) at LONG Building Technologies for a solution to help lock down credentials and keep your assets and occupants safe.

Make the most of your WSIPC Cooperative’s benefits, and reference WSIPC RFP 22-05 for contract pricing!
