Access control systems commonly require physical credentials to authenticate and approve access. BQT Solutions offer a range of secure credential options that can be preconfigured or customised to suit your needs

Key fob credentials are a popular choice for applications where the credential doesn’t need to double as an ID badge. BQT stocks a wide range of fobs to suit the most common communication technologies – 125KHz, 13.56MHz MIFARE Classic or MIFARE DESFire EV1, EV2, and what we don’t have in stock, we can order in for you.

    • Their compact design fits on a keyring making the credential easy to carry for daily access. Coming in many colors, key fobs can also be printed to have a company logo or user ID number similar to a card credential.


    • Secure encryption, working with 13.56MHz, MIFARE Classic or MIFARE DESFire credential data, fob credentials can also be programmed to work with a custom access key. If your security systems are currently using 125kHz cards (commonly Prox cards), now is a good time to consider upgrading your systems as this technology can be easily cloned, creating an insecurity in your access control systems.


    Ideal use case

    A fob is a common credential because of the convenience of simply added one a key ring. Used in all market sectors

    MIFARE Classic

    MIFARE Classic was the first version of a high frequency, more secure MIFARE card system. Storing the card number on one of its sectors, the card then encrypts the communication between the card and reader, and is exponentially harder to hack compared to its predecessors.


    MIFARE DESFire added to this step change in security and is the most secure of the MIFARE card systems. It features a cryptographic module on the card that adds an additional layer of triple DES and AES encryption to the card/reader transaction which reduces the risk of cloning or copying of cards. This is one of the highest standards of card security currently available.

    Custom encryption keys

    BQT Solutions also offers the ability for an integrator or end user to purchase their own reserved set of encryption keys. This effectively gives the organization their own entire set of globally unique site codes and card numbers, protected with their unique encryption key, for that site. This means there is no chance of other cards from ever working on that site.
