Cost-Effectively Transition to Advanced Technology
Kantech’s ioSmart Smart Card Readers give customers an easy and powerful way to move from proximity cards to advanced smart card technology, whether they are using the popular Kantech ioProx solution or another proximity system. Multi-technology readers provide the option to read both prox and smart cards allowing the customers to migrate at their pace.
Versatile, Time-Saving Design
Unlike other solutions on the market that use restrictive, proprietary technology, ioSmart’s open technology offers versatility. Based on MIFARE Plus smart technology for readers, and MIFARE Plus EV1 for credentials, ioSmart supports many different card formats, including HID® Prox. The reader can also be used with any access controller using Wiegand protocol. To save installation time and money, ioSmart Smart Card Readers can be wired directly to standard door contacts and T.Rex devices rather than running the wires all the way to a controller. ioSmart Smart Card Readers are available in single-gang or mullion models and can be installed in indoor or outdoor applications.
High Level of Security
ioSmart readers provide end-to-end AES 128-bit encryption between the ioSmart card and ioSmart reader when connectedto KT-400 and KT-1 controller over RS-485 and aforementioned controllers to EntraPass software over IP.
Intuitive User Experience
ioSmart Smart Card Readers include an intuitive LED status bar that clearly indicates various access conditions to the user. There are also models available with integrated backlit, capacitive keypad support for dual factor authentication, combining contactless card presentation with a PIN.
ioSmart Smart Card Readers are Bluetooth-ready and field firmware upgradeable, providing a solution that customers can rely on for long-term performance. Beyond access control, customers can use the ioSmart MIFARE Plus EV1 card’s additional unlocked sectors for third party applications such as vending, cafeteria, bus/train, etc.* These readers offer an uncomplicated path to secure, feature-rich technology.
