MagiKit, which will make it easier and more convenient for millions of iPhone users to use access key cards on a daily basis for work, transportation or when entering secured housing communities, is now available on Kickstarter.
MagiKit is the first Radio frequency identification (RFID) phone case designed with near field communication (NFC) functionality for iPhone users.
“It’s always been very inconvenient for me when I have lost or forgotten my access cards, and many people have the same problem,” said Winker Wang, Founder of MagiKit Inc. “Since we always have our smartphones with us, we wanted to develop a smartphone solution to this problem, so we created the MagiKit iPhone Case with NFC/RFID functionality to make our lives a little easier.”
Wang notes that although an NFC reader was built into the iPhone starting with iPhone 6, it was only designed to be used with Apple Pay and can’t be integrated to access key cards.
“With MagiKit, we saw an opportunity to create a new product that would allow iPhone users to benefit from NFC technology,” he said.
The MagiKit iPhone case contains two built-in mini cards for access control, operating at 125KHz and 13.56MHz frequencies. This allows people to use the MagiKit Case in two ways: by directly placing access credentials into the custom slot in the MagiKit Case that is suitable for any ISO card, or by directly incorporating access credentials by emulating it to the case – where there are two built-in mini cards for access control for work or any user’s place of choice.
“MagiKit is also an ideal solution for public transportation, making access quick and easy,” Wang said. “Simply slide your public transportation card into the slot in the phone case and you’re ready to tap and go.”
MagiKit also offers an advanced function, which is recommended for users who must still show their badge for identification, which requires the use of the MagiKit Box IoT, MagiKit Case and the MagiKit APP.
The advanced function uses technology from the MagiKit Box IoT and App to encode the user’s access credential into one of the two built in mini-cards in the case. This gives users the ability to use a smartphone as an access card and they no longer need to reach for their key cards.
MagiKit is available in orange, black and light blue patterned-cover designs – and in a solid black case.
