Read-a-Card is a software utility for reading ID data from most contactless RFID cards, proximity tokens and tags. Compatible with a wide range of card technologies and systems, Read-a-Card has many features to enable quick and easy integration of desktop card reading functionality into door access systems and other software solutions.

Read-a-Card provides the crucial missing link between a contactless smart card reader and your software. Unlike data stored on a USB memory stick, reading the ID from your contactless card or tag cannot be done by the operating system alone, and the method used will depend on the reader, the card technology and the storage and encryption method used. Read-a-Card does this without needing any additional software development, although developer features are also available.

Identify, read and log ID data from contactless RFID cards and tags

Read-a-Card can be used to quickly identify different contactless card types and to discover the unique ID for each card. It can operate as a keyboard wedge, automatically ‘typing’ the card ID into other software applications. Read-a-Card can be used for easy enrollment of users into physical access systems, as well as more advanced contactless card integration with other software applications. Plus it has features built in for automatic logging of RFID events coming from one or more attached smart card readers.
