IDenticard adds prox to UBand solution

Andrew Hudson   ||   Mar 17, 2015  ||   

Identification, access control and security solutions provider, IDenticard has announced the release of UBand Prox, the latest product in the company's wearable access credentials.

UBand Prox is a silicone wristband that features an internal proximity chip that allows the wristband to support the same functions as a standard proximity card. UBand Prox is available in the most common proximity technology formats, including 26, 35 and 37 bit. UBand Prox is also compatible with a number of HID proximity formats making it a viable alternative for a number of organizations.

The addition of proximity technology will enable the UBand to be used as a complement to existing access card programs or as a replacement access solution for sites not requiring visual identification.

The bracelet features a sweat proof silicone construction, making it a good fit for gym and fitness center access. Meanwhile, delivery personnel stand to benefit from door access functionality that doesn't require them to put their delivery down and take out an access card.

“UBand Prox makes proximity-based access easier, giving it a broad appeal,” says Katelynd Boles, IDenticard's product manager for cards and credentials. “Any organization currently using or seeking a new proximity solution will benefit from UBand Prox’s durability, ease of use and innovative design.”

Each UBand is the width of a standard rubber band, while the internal chip is less than 4 mm thick and 20 cm in diameter. The band sits comfortably on the wrist and can be put on or taken off with ease. UBand Prox is available in two in-stock colors, black or blue, and three wrist circumference sizes 6, 7 and 8 inches. Custom colors or graphics are available upon request.
