How Front Desk Supply Helps You Find the Right RFID Key Cards

The more information you provide to Front Desk Supply about your hotel’s specific lock system and chipset, the better we can assist you in getting the right key cards. Front Desk Supply often comes to the rescue when a hotel staff member forgets to alert the front desk that they’re running low on key cards.

For example, we helped one hotel general manager in California by finding a box of the right type of RFID key cards for their hotel’s locks in our inventory. We shipped it out on Saturday for delivery on Monday – Front Desk Supply to the rescue!

A great option to help you avoid exactly this type of scenario would be to talk with one of our expert account managers about creating an attractive key card that you can’t wait to hand to a guest.

RFID Hotel Key Card FAQ

All I know is that I have RFID keys. Is that enough information to process my key order?

Not all RFID key types will work for your locks which is why we will need to confirm the details before we quote and print your order. You can look on the outside of the box of your current keys, a previous invoice, or contact your lock installer to get the information you need. From there we can send out tester keys to be sure they will open your doors. We work with all the main lock systems, but there certainly are some small, inexpensive ones we need more information for.

Why is there a difference in price between RFID keys?

It is typically a combination of reasons: the demand for that type of RFID key – the more demand, the lower the price, similarly supply – if a vendor reduces the supply by using a technology that is not easily available, and the quantity of keys that are being ordered. For some of the higher cost technologies, we stock generic or blank versions, so hotels of all sizes and budgets have some less expensive options for higher cost items.

Do you offer RFID key fobs or RFID wristbands for guests and staff?

We do! The memory size of the fob will vary depending on who will be using it. Speak with one of our account managers to be sure you get exactly what you are looking for. Like the key cards, we need to know the lock system to get you the right product.

I am planning an event like a conference or a wedding at a hotel. How would I know what RFID key information to provide?

It would be best to contact your Event Manager or Front Desk Manager at the hotel and get the RFID key information directly from them. Our team is happy to work together to make sure the design works for you and the key works for them.

I am thinking about switching from magnetic to RFID locks. Do you install them?

No, we don’t do installations but we can introduce you to our preferred lock vendor who offers a good combination of technology, price, service, and experience. In the meantime, if you need more magnetic keys, you can learn more about our magnetic key options here.

What is your standard lead time for RFID Hotel Keys? What if I am running low and can’t wait that long?

Our standard lead time is 3 weeks from the time the final production proof is completed and confirmed, plus 3-5 business days for ground shipping. If you are tight on time, you can order our “Hot Off the Press” RFID keys to hold you over by clicking here. They typically ship the same day or next day.
