Reasons for Implementing Wristband RFID Identification Tags in Educational Institutions
Technology is becoming increasingly popular in various industries, including education. Smart cards have been used for a simpler, more convenient way to improve user experience and security in global educational institutions, but did you know that you can use wristbands in the exact same way for even more convenience?
Wristband RFID tags for access control
Wristband RFID tags can be programmed to allow users access to certain areas of a building. This means that it's easy to distinguish between faculty and students and effectively only allow them to access the areas they need to enter. This helps improve overall security by preventing unauthorized access to any areas containing sensitive information, storage rooms, records, etc. Wristband RFID tags can also replace conventional keys for colleges or universities with on-site dormitories, helping to prevent unauthorized access. The main benefit of wristbands is that they are lighter and more convenient to wear than regular keys or even smart cards, which theoretically should help reduce lost, damaged, or stolen wristbands. If they are, replacing them is fairly easy.
Wristband RFID tags for use in self-service dining and cashless payment
Wristbands can be used for employees and students to use in self-service dining. The wristband can be recharged, and then used to pay for meals instead of cash, making the self-service dining more efficient and meaning there's no need to handle cash and coins anymore. Wristbands are also a good way to ensure that self-service dining is only used by designated personnel (i.e. employees and students). When worn on the wrist, staff can easily identify those who are not wearing wristbands and ask if they should be allowed into the self-service dining or in fact any other areas of the building.
Wristband RFID tags for personal information
Wristbands can also carry basic information about the cardholder. This can be in the form of family contact information, next of kin, and any important medical information that should be known. As people generally don't carry appropriate paperwork containing this information, wristbands become extremely valuable in case of accidents or the need to contact the cardholder's family. Unlike a smart card that may be placed in a wallet or pocket and difficult to locate, staff can easily access wristbands and use portable scanners to quickly access this information.
Education institutions of all sizes can benefit their faculty and students in a variety of ways by using wristband RFID tags. With smart wristbands becoming more efficient, affordable, and capable of storing more data than ever before, now is the best time to reap the benefits of its highly versatile applications.
