Introducing UBand­™ Prox: The newest wearable access credential from IDenticard™

Lancaster, PA (February 24, 2015) — IDenticard, a leading provider of identification, access control and security solutions, today announced the release of UBand Prox, the latest product in its innovative line of wearable access credentials.

UBand Prox is a silicone wristband containing an internal proximity chip that allows the wristband to perform the same functions as a standard proximity card. UBand Prox is available in the most common proximity technology formats, including 26 bit, 35 bit and 37 bit.

UBand Prox is also compatible with a number of HID® proximity formats, meaning it can serve as a direct replacement for many HID® proximity cards. With UBand Prox, the days of scrambling to find an access card are over. UBand Prox allows you to slip on a wristband, wave it in front of a card reader and go – it’s that simple!

Organizations of all types will find UBand Prox to be a useful solution. Gym and fitness center members will appreciate UBand Prox’s comfortable, attention-getting design and sweatproof silicone construction when using it to access facilities. Delivery personnel will be able to access doors that require a scanned card without putting their packages down, making fumbles and drops a thing of the past.

“UBand Prox makes proximity-based access easier, giving it a broad appeal,” said Katelynd Boles, IDenticard’s Product Manager for Cards and Credentials. “Any organization currently using or seeking a new proximity solution will benefit from UBand Prox’s durability, ease of use and innovative design.”

Each wristband is approximately the width of a standard rubber band, while the internal chip is less than 4 mm thick and 20 cm in diameter. The band sits comfortably on the wrist and can be put on or taken off with ease. UBand Prox is available in two in-stock colors (black or blue) and three wrist circumference sizes (6”, 7” and 8”), meaning there is a UBand Prox to suit most needs. Custom colors or graphics are available upon request.

UBand Prox is a unique, novel approach to proximity access control. Bring your proximity access program into the future with a wearable prox solution from IDenticard.
