Products Access Control

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies and Salamander Technologies announced that people who use a smart card to gain access into a building can now use that same ID card for accountability purposes outside the building.

The dual-purposed aptiQ smart card can incorporate Salamander’s interTRAX suite of accountability solutions, resulting in a multi-function ID that fulfills daily access control and other smart card-based tasks within the building, as well as personnel tracking outside the building during planned events, natural disasters or emergencies.

“Using MIFARE DESFire EV1 technology and an open architecture, the aptiQ smart card provides a higher level of security and a way to increase the security of access control solutions today while providing a pathway to other smart credential applications, such as incorporating Salamander’s interTRAX suite of accountability solutions,” said Raj Venkat, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies vice president, marketing.

Both Salamander Technologies and Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies are suppliers to the Identification Systems Group, a nationwide network of local experts in identification, security and card personalization. Each company works together to provide seamless nationwide support and collaboration in the identification and card issuance industry.
