SmartShield is an RFID enabled badge security system for public safety departments and agencies. SmartShield is a Blackinton patented technology. We embed a rugged, tamper-proof RFID transponder chip into the back of a traditional Blackinton badge transforming an ordinary shield into a SmartShield. The SmartShield badge acts as a portal to the officer’s information. By simply scanning the badge with a WinEID software enabled RFID reader you can access existing databases and see a comprehensive view of officer information. You can instantly 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.
