Most modern office buildings, hospitals, airports, parking facilities and industrial estates are equipped with access control systems that authorize people to move into and out of specified zones. Smartphone credentials and cards equipped with RFID are used to identify people.
Convenient hands-free access
Nedap Identification Systems beliefs that convenience and security can go hand in hand. Our hands-free card and smartphone credential readers offer read ranges of multiple meters (long-range identification) and offer the highest level of convenience while maintaining sufficient levels of security.
Nedap MACE is a platform that allows any access control system to use smartphones as access credentials. The platform consists of a cloud based service, readers and apps. MACE apps can receive and contain multiple virtual identity credentials. These credentials are presented to MACE readers using NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy or QR. Virtual identity credentials are sent to the phone in a secured way from the MACE Server. The MACE Server accepts imports from 3rd party access control systems.
uPASS Access is a very small UHF reader that fits on doorposts, has an attractive modern design and reads access badges at a distance of up to 2 meter (6 feet). This reader supports reading battery less UHF cards that follow the EPC Gen 2 standard. Standard UHF cards in ISO format are available, but also specific combi cards. These combi cards combine UHF with conventional card technology from HID, Legic, MIFARE, Nedap, Sony or EM.
If a guaranteed read range of approximately four meters is required, Nedap advices to use TRANSIT Entry, a microwave based reader (2,45 GHz). With this reader Nedap compact tags, that contain a battery, are used for a longer read range. The reader can be equipped with a so called MTR Module which will enable proximity reading of common smart cards and proximity cards.
