Viking Card

Door Access

The Viking Card has door access technology included in the card design. It works with a proximity reader to identify and allow access to authorized users without any physical contact between the card and the reader. This allows access to designated buildings on campus with the permission of your department.

DOOR ACCESS

To enter areas for which you have authorization, just hold up your card to the reader. (You may be able to use the card from inside a holder, wallet or purse without removing it.) The light on the proximity reader will turn from red to green signifying that access has been granted and the door will unlock
