After successful cooperation with British designer, Lara Bonhic to make luxury limited-edition handmade iPhone 5/4S/4 accessories – CalypsoCase by Lara Bohinc, and launching CalypsoLoop Winter 2012 Collection, Slovenian manufacturer of luxury accessories for mobile devices, Calypso Crystal has prepared something completely new for the start of this year. We can describe it as replacement for your key, or key hidden in your CalypsoCase. So, basically your iPhone is your key.
Is it necessery to say how many times the forgotten keys caused our headaches, or about mess while searching for keys per bag, especially if you’re in a hurry (what usually happens then)? Thanks to new CalypsoKey, our suffering is over.
From now, you can nlock doors just with a tap of a CalypsoKey, hidden in your CalypsoCase. This works due to sensational new near field communication (NFC) possibilities for your iPhone with the CalypsoKey. Featuring the missing identification potentials of your iPhone. The built-in dual-band RFID antenna brings your entire portfolio of identification cards into one CalypsoCase.
If you ask what actually is NFC and RFID here is the answer. Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that enables the communication between devices over a distance of less than 10 cm, which long ago standardised on the ISO/IEC 14443 standard to facilitate interoperability. The key benefits of NFC are compatible with the existing contactless infrastructure and simplicity – NFC is characterized by a natural and intuitive “just touch” movement.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, for the purposes of security, automatic identification and tracking. RFID tags are used in many industries (RFID is also governed by the ISO 18000-3 standard, with which NFC is compatible).
CalypsoKey has one 13.56 MHz RFID, ISO 14443A antena with 1k memory capacity and a second 125kHz RFID antena built-in. Compatible with most RFID NFC worldwide access points. CalypsoCrystal recommend Kaba locking systems.
New CalypsoKey will replace your keys. Open doors. Access your apartment. Check in at your office building. Open the garage. All with just a short wireless tap of your CalypsoCase. No apps and no charging are needed.
