Unauthorized copying of RFID tags or cards is typically illegal. How to copy RFID key cards or tags legally?

How it Works

Clone Smith offers three different options for copying your key fobs and cards. Our specialty is copying radio frequency identification (RFID) based keys. We also support other technologies including high-security keys, smart cards, iButton, and magnetic key technologies.


This service does not require you to mail your original key. Simply take a photo of your key and complete the online application. You could have a duplicate key fob in as little as 1 business day.



Supports nearly every RFID-based key on the market. For high-security keys and keys without a serial number mailing them to our office is the best option. Most orders ship the same day we receive your key.



We have Clone Smith Express locations and authorized partners in locations across the United Arab Emirates. Verify your key is compatible online before traveling to a location near you.

Easiest Way To Copy Your Key Card


Our main service simply requires a picture of the serial number printed on your key fob or card. This number is typically found on the back of your key. This photo can be uploaded using our online application linked below. Once we have your completed application, we will use our special database to help fill in the missing information required to make a working duplicate key.

Our database contains information on thousands of addresses in the United Arab Emirates. In order to properly use the database, we do require the address of the location where the key is used. For this service, we also require proof of residency to ensure you are the owner or legal user of the key. Clone Smith will never contact your landlord. If you do not feel comfortable or cannot provide this information, our Pick & Drop Service may be a better option for you. 

After completing checkout, you can expect your order to ship within 1 business day. Orders received before 04 pm typically ship the same day. Overnight shipping is available for fast delivery.

  • Proof of residency (lease or utility bill)
  • Key with visible serial number.
  • Ability to take and upload photos.

No, our database only contains partial information which is not adequate enough to make a working key. The unique serial number of a working key is required to successfully create a working clone.

Our database contains information to thousands of addresses in the United Arab Emirates but this information is only part of the puzzle.
