Tri-Electronics  provides organisations with greater flexibility when deploying ID Cards for various uses within their facilities. ID Concierge can be customised to suit the Enterprise needs of the organisation, including a wide range of capabilities.

• ID Management

• Database integration

• Badge Printing

• Technology card Encoding

• Visitor Management

• Access Control privledge provisioning


ID Concierge allows companies who have smartcard-based ID cards for access control or companies wishing to deploy smartcard-based systems for access control and other uses, to use their existing ID cards and extend their capability by adding additional functionality and power to their existing card.


For example: A large organisation can use different Sectors on a Mifare or Mifare DESFire based Smartcard for access control in different buildings.

Sector 1 could be used for the Brisbane building, Sector 2 for the Melbourne building and so on. They can also extend the capability of the existing cards, by adding “Follow-me-print” using the Staff ID that is encoded to sector 9, or the secure Technology Lockers by encoding the same data to Sector 10.

Using this approach, each sector on the Smartcard uses its own secure keyset, which means that it can be given to different system suppliers with-out compermising the security of the card.


Smartcard readers for the various systems are programmed with the necessary Read Keyset and sector information to access the encoded data and pass it through to the application for authentication.

As new systems are deployed, a card holder presents his or her ID Card to the reader on the kiosk to be updated.

Common uses are:

• Building Access Control

• Follow-Me-Print systems

• Staff Lockers

• Staff ID Number

• Card Holder ID Verification (including an Image)

• Event Ticketing

• Loyalty & Rewards

• Parking

• Login Credential


Kiosk Operation

The Kiosk will operate as an unattended system waiting for a User to present their ID Badge/Access Control card to the Smartcard reader.

Once the user presents their card, the kiosk authenticates the card by checking the Sector authentication key and the encoded access number. It uses this information to check the database for a valid user.

Once the user is validated, it either processes the card updates or in the case of an Administrator, can log them into the application.
