Kantech offers a full range of single and multi-technology readers and card options to fit any access control requirements. With smart card, proximity, biometric, multi-technology wireless long-range options, Kantech readers feature intuitive design for ease of use and installation. The entire line of readers are fully compatible for use with Kantech door controllers as part of a complete access control system.
Based on MIFARE® Plus EV1, Kantech’s ioSmart Card Readers provide a high level of security by enabling end-to-end encryption between the credentials and the EntraPass access control software. The multi-technology readers also 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.
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 the Wiegand protocol. To save installation time and money, ioSmart Smart Card Readers can be wired directly to standard door contacts and T.Rex devices. 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 connected to KT-400 and KT-1 controllers over RS-485 and 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 an integrated backlit capacitive keypad for two-factor authentication, combining contactless card presentation with a PIN.
ioSmart Smart Card Readers are Bluetooth-ready and feature upgradeable field firmware, 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, and other functions.
