We're constantly bombarded with new gadgets in our everyday life. Lately, hotels are moving away from ordinary locks and towards card keys. Some of them simply slide into a small slot in the lock, while others work with radio frequency (RF) and one does not even need to slide them, one simply presents them near the lock and the door opens.
I am wondering what the correct verb for this action would be. Does one swipe them, as would be the case with a credit card? Hover, perhaps? Place over? Something else?
