Plastic cards equipped in an electronic module intended for automatic reading in electronic devices can find a place wherever it is required to identify the holder.
You can find examples in:
- access control systems, where only the authorized people have the right to reside in certain areas (e.g. hotel rooms, laboratories, warehouses), or the use of specific devices (computers, photocopiers, etc.).
- time attendance systems, requiring employees to record daily entry and exit from the workplace, which allows for greater control of actual hours worked and the corresponding adjustment of wages.
Due to some weaknesses in the use of cards in access control systems (the possibility, that the card will be lost or use by a third party), to increase security of the system there are also few methods of biometric identification (voice recognition, fingerprint, retina) recommended.
