HID Global offers matching card compatibility for a large portion of SmartID customizations and reader programming under the iCLASS SE Custom Programming and CSN configuration feature sets.

Existing reader formats (ex. codes that look like 01SMR-0011) must be evaluated by HID Global to determine migration paths as SmartID, SmartTRANS and associated programmer tools are often a highly customized solution to fit custom MIFARE/DESFire programming,. HID Global will provide migration paths for commercially reasonable opportunities.

Please consult the Customer Item Substitute List for more information or contact HID technical services to evaluate your specific situation.
