SmartShield RFID Badge


SmartShield RFID Badge

SmartShield RFID Enabled Badge, Blackinton *Patented Technology

A Blackinton SmartShield badge offers a smart way to protect your department, as well as your community.  The “smart” technology is driven by a rugged, tamper-proof RFID transponder chip.  The chip is embedded into the back of your Blackinton badge transforming your ordinary shield into a SmartShield.

The SmartShield badge acts as a portal to officer’s information.  By scanning a SmartShield badge with a RFID reader you can access your existing officer databases.  Resulting in a comprehensive view of officer information.  For example, you can see who the badge is issued to, verify identity and credentials, and make intelligent decisions based on real-time information.

SmartShield is helping departments manage inventory control, building access, field validation, and identity authentication.  See how Colombia (since 2009, over 100,000 SmartShield badges deployed) and Mexico (over 15,000 Smartshield badges deployed) have applied our SmartShield technology to protect their officers and citizens.
