For events, security is very important, and organizers always make sure nobody can copy their wristbands. Otherwise, it may lead to a security breach due to unauthorized access to their event.
Here are the ultimate security wristband features for event organizers.
The Wristband Lock
To fasten a wristband to a subject’s wrist, there will be a small clasp or lock. This lock is a common feature in every security wristband. There are different types of locks like the Barrel Lock, the Smartlock, Metal Ring, the Loop Lock, Socket & Stud, and Self-adhesive tab.
A most common security wristband feature is UV (ultraviolet). Like sun beds UV is a synthetic light source. It is actually a type of radiation produced by the sun.
Something that glows in the dark is termed as UV. A UV light triggers the glow. You will find similar lighting arrangement in festivals and nightclubs.
Holograms and Security Foils
To prevent fake copies and increase the security printing a hologram or security foil is used.
There is a difference between a hologram and foil. The material used is known as a foil. And the visual effect created is referred to a hologram. Ultra-thin plastic layers are used to make holograms. The holographic effect can be created on foils as well.
To improve identification and access accuracy printing a barcode is a foolproof and basic method. Concert tickets with barcodes are very common these days. Some companies print only digital tickets with unique barcodes for validation.
To increase security and operational efficiency at an event applying barcodes to wristbands is the best strategy.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
The most hi-tech and latest feature available on a security wristband is RFID. For events, it is best to use RFID technology as it has many benefits. It enables cashless payments. It is possible to pre-load RFID wristbands with credit so that event attendees can make the payment by just flashing their wristbands. They can activate and authenticate a purchase by just tapping their RFID wristband.
It also enables Contactless Access Control. On a back-end RFID system, details like name, ticket type, and access are stored and by tapping a wristband against a scanner it can be authenticated.
To connect the attendee’s social media accounts RFID technology can be used. RFID scanners can be connected via digital photo booths. Festival-goers without having to use their mobile phones can do things like sharing their experience in real time. And event organizers can extend the promotion of their event.
