The Ethos Access Readers
Making the transition from legacy, non-secure physical credentials, such as 125 kHz prox, to highly secure smart cards and mobile credentials seamless, Ethos readers will work with your existing legacy proximity credentials until you are ready to upgrade on your own timeline. Secure smart card or Bluetooth® credentials can be introduced at any time, and the Ethos readers will work with your old and new credentials simultaneously. We support credential-to-reader security based on AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), the most secure standard known today.
The Ethos readers were designed from the ground up to help end-users transition from their existing solution into new. All our standard readers feature OSDP™ communication with the patent pending "auto-detect" feature. The reader will automatically switch from the Wiegand protocol to OSDP™ when the panel is upgraded to OSDP™, with no need to configure, rewire, or upgrade the reader in any way. The reader can also be configured with a "Prox filter range" allowing the reader to report a pre-defined range of prox cards. This feature comes in handy when reading dual-technology cards or when transitioning from Prox to Desfire®.
