Blog > RFID Keycards are a Thing of the Past – Introducing RFID Wristbands

RFID Keycards

There used to be something so special about checking into your hotel, getting your keycards, and unlocking your room for the first time with just a quick tap or swipe. And in a way, the magic remains… but in a different shape. Today, hotels and resorts everywhere are gradually trading their RFID key cards for RFID wristbands. This solution offers a better guest experience by being able to make actions using just a tap of the wrist.

Guests Prefer RFID Wristbands to RFID Keycards

RFID keycards make the process of accessing your room a little easier and more secure. For starters, you no longer have to worry about a physical key that can be duplicated, thus running the risk of theft. Instead, your keycard is assigned a unique identifier that ensures that you are the only one with access to the room. RFID wristbands offer the same technological solutions as RFID keycards, but with a few additional advantages that offer an even better guest experience.


RFID wristbands offer unmatched convenience for guests, especially in hotels and resorts that offer additional services. For instance, if your facility also features a bar or restaurant, guests can make cashless (and cardless) payments with just a tap of their wristband. All your guests have to do is input this information digitally, which you can offer to assist with during the check-in process.


We all know that guests are prone to occasionally losing their key cards. Getting locked out of your room is guaranteed to put a damper on your experience. With RFID wristbands, you reduce the likelihood of this significantly. After all, it is awfully difficult to lose your key if it is right on your wrist.

Hotel Managers Also Prefer RFID Wristbands

RFID keycards simply cannot do all of what RFID wristbands can. When used properly RFID wristbands can help you amplify your brand and collect valuable data on the actions of your guests and employees.

Amplify Your Brand

Using RFID technology, visitors can link their wristbands to their social profiles. Using a checkpoint system, guests can post to social media with just a quick tap of the wrist. This provides your hotel with an easy way to showcase your amazing facilities. These posts from your guests act as free advertising for your hotel with added social proof from your guests.

Collect Valuable Data

As guests move about and interact with different checkpoints throughout your facility (entering their room, ordering drinks, interacting on social media), you can collect valuable data that can help you improve your facilities and increase your revenue.

RFID Wristband Materials


Made from 100% DuPont™ Tyvek®, these paper-like RFID wristbands feature tamper-proof adhesive closures that prohibit the band from being removed or reused without being destroyed. Tyvek® RFID wristbands for event access work great in establishments like nightclubs, bars, and restaurants because they're disposable and cost-effective.  Lightweight and water-resistant, Tyvek® is especially popular when used as RFID wristbands for waterparks and RFID wristbands for amusement parks.  Tyvek® RFID bracelets are available in ¾” and 1” widths.

Plastic & Vinyl

Made from multiple layers of stretch-resistant material and reinforced with locking snap closures, plastic and vinyl RFID wristbands offer an enhanced level of security and support. These sleek, single-use RFID bracelets can be worn for over a week in duration and are removable only by cutting. Due to their longevity and reliability, these sturdy RFID styles are the preferred choice of RFID wristbands for hotels and resorts. Our plastic and vinyl RFID bands are available in numerous sizes (widths).  


Cloth RFID wristbands provide the ultimate level of extended-wear support in RFID solutions. Made with high-quality fabric and an RFID slider/ locking bead closure, the cloth offers the most protection against transfer and counterfeiting. This makes cloth one of the most logical options to use as RFID wristbands for music festivals, RFID concert wristbands, and large venues. 


Silicone RFID wristbands are flexible, reusable bracelets most often used as RFID wristbands for cashless payments for food, beverages, and souvenirs. Constructed of 100% silicone (latex and lead-free) with an embedded transponder, silicone RFID bracelets are strong yet soft to the touch, and can be worn over and over again. This is why many gyms and athletic clubs love style for its member's RFID wristbands for keyless entry of doors and lockers.
