Have Questions?Here are some of the most common questions we get asked.
Is it legal to duplicate/clone a fob (RFID key)?
In most provinces’ RFID keys are considered the same as a physical key in the eyes of the law. There is no restriction on copying a key you legally own. Therefore, duplicating an RFID key is no different than having your house key copied at the local hardware store. However, if you are still concerned please check the local laws in your province.
What type of FOB / RFID Key can you clone/duplicate?
We can duplicate most types of RFID fobs / keys. There are some encrypted keys that cannot be duplicated, but luckily these are mostly used in high security commercial and government buildings. Check to see if your key is on our compatible list and if it is not on our list, please contact our support to see if we can duplicate it. There are hundreds of keys on the market so is not impossible to list them all.
What if the key / fob that you duplicate does not work properly?
It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes new clones just don’t work like they should. If you happen to get a clone that doesn’t work, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will fix it immediately or refund your money.
Will anyone be about to tell I'm using a cloned fob?
Your duplicate key will be an identical clone of your original key. The access control system will not register any differences between your original and the duplicate. There are obvious physical differences in the duplicates and your original, this is why we stock neutral colors an never print a logo on our keys.
If my original key is deactivated will my clone still work?
No, your duplicates are identical copies of your original. If your original key is deactivated or replaced, your cloned keys would need to be be reprogrammed.
