Tyco Security Products Offers HID Mobile-Enabled Readers

HID iCLASS SE and multiCLASS SE readers use OSDP v2.1.6 to interface with Software House’s iSTAR Ultra access controllers

WESTFORD, MA. September 26, 2016 –– Tyco Security Products is offering HID Mobile Access iCLASS SE and multiCLASS SE Mobile-Enabled Readers with optional Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) for use with Software House C•CURE 9000 v.2.50 event management platform. This integration ensures that customers have access to the newest breed of access control readers available in the market today, enabling users the ability to use a secure smartphone credential.

The integration between Software House C•CURE 9000 v.2.50 and the mobile enabled readers from HID provides customers with more choices on the type of reader they can deploy. Users can open a door via their smartphone by close-proximity tapping or by using HID’s patented “twist and go” gesture technology for longer-range distances. The HID SE platform readers allow secure access to a door or gate with a mobile device using either the iOS and Android operating systems.

For areas that require a high level of security authentication, the readers are enabled with OSDP v2.1.6. This non-proprietary specification defines the communication protocol between physical access control systems, such as reader-to-panel communications.

“The addition of the HID Mobile Access iCLASS SE and multiCLASS SE Enabled Readers provides our customers with more reader options and enables them to use their handheld device, which people carry with them everyday and everywhere they go, as their badge,” said Rick Focke, Senior Product Manager, Tyco Security Products. “In addition, the OSPD compliance option is an important specification for projects where a higher level of security is required.”

Both the iCLASS SE and multiCLASS SE readers support various technologies, including iCLASS Seos, standard iCLASS, iCLASS SE, MIFARE, MIFARE DESFire and HID Prox. Multi-layer security is provided on the iCLASS SE platform through its Security Identity Object (SIO) model, which ensures tamper-resistant protection of key and cryptographic operations.
