This page describes the hardware used to create the new door lock of the space. Basically there is a RFID-reader that can read blue keychain tokens and some types of RFID-cards (like OV-chipkaart and WUR-cards). The code of the token/card needs to be read once to match it to a user and then grants access to the front door. Zarya can do this for you when needed.
