Wristbands are everywhere!
These versatile accessories are used in a variety of different circumstances:
- They're issued at music festivals to verify the wearer has access to a particular area
- They're used at concerts and bars to verify that the wearer is over the age of 21
- They're used for fundraising and awareness (think LIVESTRONG bracelets)
Yes, most people have encountered wristbands in some way, shape or form.
However, in recent years, wristbands have been adopted for a different kind of use, one that may have never crossed your mind: as access credentials in formerly card-based access control systems.
These wristbands look a lot like awareness wristbands, but are different in one key way: they can be programmed to perform a variety of tasks, including opening doors, making payments and recording attendance.
