Schlage multi-technology using MIFARE Classic credentials are extremely flexible. Particularly useful for facilities with moderate security needs during a transition from magnetic stripe or proximity technology to smart technology, this card can be read by both proximity readers and smart readers. This allows customers to economically migrate to more secure MIFARE technology utilized by Schlage readers and wireless locks at their own pace.
