Suprema recently announced that the company’s Airfob Patch won the Judges’ Choice Award from the SIA (Security Industry Association) New Product Showcase Awards.
Since its inception in 1979, SIA New Product Showcase Awards has been the security industry’s premier product awards programme, recognising innovative security products, services and solutions. The awards programme, in partnership with ISC West, presented this year’s winners in virtual format. The Judges’ Choice Award, which recognises the most innovative product within the physical security category, was given to Suprema for its Airfob Patch.
Airfob Patch is a retrofit adhesive-backed device that attaches to existing RF card readers to make them compatible with mobile credentials. When attached to existing card readers, Airfob Patch acquires credential compatibility, power, and OSDP or Wiegand communication with the reader and adds Suprema’s Mobile Access credential capability. Airfob Patch harvests power from the RF field signals transmitted from the reader and stores it until needed. The wireless method of power and data transfer eliminates the need to splice a reader’s pigtail for installation.
“Airfob Patch is the world’s first mobile-to-RF-card signal translator, enabling mobile phones to communicate with the existing RF card readers via Bluetooth,” said Young S. Moon, the CEO of Suprema. “Installation is as easy as adding a sticker. No wire, batteries or construction is required.”
Suprema Mobile Access and Airfob Patch were developed by MOCA System, a Suprema affiliate company that began in 2019 to focus on mobile access card solutions. MOCA System has developed solutions that use stable Bluetooth-based wireless communication methods that are being evaluated for patents.
