Allegion Schlage Multi-Technology Credentials

Product number: Schlage (aptiQ) Multi-Technology Vendor: Allegion

Schlage multi-technology credentials (formerly aptiQ) are extremely flexible. Particularly useful during a transition from proximity technology to smart technology, these cards can be read by both proximity readers and smart readers. This allows customers to economically migrate to the latest smart technology at their own pace.

Schlage multi-technology credentials contain both 125 kHz proximity and 13.56 MHz contactless smart card capability in one unit, and are available in the newest technologies of today, including both MIFARE® and MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 technology.


MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 is the highest level of smart credential technology available from ​Allegion. This credential technology utilizes extra layers of security protection – mutual authentication, AES 128-bit diversified key encryption, and message authentication coding (MAC), giving the highest security in the industry to each transaction between the contactless smart credential and reader.


MIFARE® is a secure and cost effective smart credential technology option available from Allegion. Schlage smart cards using MIFARE® technology provide the choice of 2.5k bits, 1K byte (8k bits), or 4K bytes (32k bits) of storage to meet the most demanding data storage requirements. This enhanced data storage allows for a wide range of card applications such as transit, cafeteria services, equipment check-out, and more. The open architecture design of MIFARE® technology is built to ISO 14443 standards providing for a faster data transfer speed.
