Any way to "mirror" [duplicate] the magnetic strip off of an ID card?
Basically, here's the situation: I live in an apartment which has gated access into the parking area. It uses a standard ID card to let you into the parking area. You don't swipe the ID card, but simply hold it close to the sensor, and it will read it and let you in. After parking, you can then walk into the main doors of my apartment. To get in through the secondary doors, you use the same ID card, holding it close to another sensor, and it will let you in those doors.
For me, there is no problem with the way it's set up. However, there is another issue that has developed. My girlfriend, who comes over quite a bit, has to park a couple blocks away (outside of the gated area), because she doesn't live in the apartments, and thus, doesn't have any ID to get in. So, she has to walk a few blocks to get to my apartment, and then has to have me come outside and let her in, since she can't get into the apartment either.
So, my question is, is there any way to mirror the data on my ID card with another ID card, or a blank card? There isn't any lockout feature in our apartment that I'd have to worry about. The only issue is that you can only be authenticated to get into the gated parking lot once every 5 minutes. However, that wouldn't be an issue, since I would have already been in my apartment for longer than that before she would get there. So, if I could give her an exact copy of my ID card, then she could get into our parking lot, and into my apartment, and wouldn't have to walk so far just to get here.
Does anyone know of any possible ways to do that? Is it even feasible?
Thanks for any input!
