How It Works

The HID Elite Program provides end-­user customers with a unique authentication key to increase their existing security. The custom authentication key protects the card number within the access control application of the card. Only matching cards and readers will work together, prohibiting cards and readers from foreign populations to enter and function within the company’s Elite secured population. The Elite Program can use any format, including the HID Corporate 1000 format.
