1) Low-Frequency System: With 125KHz frequency chip, work with T5557 card.
2) High-Frequency System: With 13.56MHz frequency chip, work with Mifare 1K card.
Temic 5557 card: low-frequency card (125KHz), small storage space, short reading distance, mainly used for opening doors.
Mifare 1k card: High-frequency card (13.56MHz), bigger storage space, longer reading distance, more sectors and multifunctional.
※ If the key card is used only for opening door, T5557 card system will be enough.
