Smart locks used in hotels and office spaces generally use the most card-swiping unlocking method. For example, when customers check-in, they will first give a room card to enter and leave the hotel through the room card; the same is true for enterprises and institutions. On the first day of employment, a new employee will also be given an employee card. This card is not only proof of the employee’s identity, but also a valid credential for entering and exiting the unit.
