How to copy RFID key Fob Using The RFID reader/Writer
Press the chip on the key fob to the RFID writer and push the “Read” button.
Hold the backside of the key flat against the “barrel” of the gun-shaped device and keep it there for a few seconds after you pull the trigger button.
After a brief moment, the device will emit a loud beep or chirp to indicate that it has successfully scanned the key fob.
Using most RFID copying devices is as easy as point & click.
If you’re trying to copy a key card, hold the strip or chip containing the card’s encoded information against the RFID reader to scan it.
- Hold the blank key fob up to the device and hit the “Write” button. Now, press the chip on the backside of the new key to the RFID unit, the same way you did the original. When you push the “Write” button, the information copied from the source fob will imprint on the blank fob, which will then act as an exact copy of the original.
- Test the cloned key fob immediately after copying it to confirm that it works. If not, give it another shot, starting with rereading the original key.
You can make as many fob duplications of the original fob as you like by using the “Write” function on multiple blank key fobs.
Now you know how to clone & duplicate RFID key fobs & garage remotes, and electronic key fob to cards, stickers, and wristbands.
