STid Group has released its multi-technology RFID, NFC and Bluetooth readers with a biometric fingerprint sensor.
It combines strong 1:1 authentication with fingerprint, card and Bluetooth smartphone technologies. Additionally, STid offers the first OSDP™-certified touchscreen readers with scramble pad function. Architect® Blue is one of the only readers to support OSDP File Transfer to update a system’s access control readers remotely. No more time-consuming configuring individual readers on location with configuration cards. Virtual or RFID configuration cards are also available. “Utilizing the established SIA OSDP™ North American standard is important for clients requiring higher security such as government applications since it meets federal access control requirements like PKI or FICAM,” Maé Tholoniat, STid product manager.
The Architect Blue series includes seven interchangeable modules that can be connected to a smart RFID and Bluetooth core. It offers a variety of form factors (mullion, gang box) and features (card reader, keypad, touchscreen, biometrics, QR Code, 125 kHz). With a patented tamper protection system, Architect Blue readers protect sensitive data and enables easy deletion of authentication keys, when necessary.
“We strive to ensure future proof/open technology for our customers and OSDP certification for our entire series is an important milestone to continue offering industry leading, high-security access control solutions,” said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. operations manager, STid. “We’ve designed our readers and mobile ID to operate worldwide with any other open solutions an integrator or end-user may use currently or consider in the future.”
STid develops its solutions on standardized open technology such as MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 and EV3 and public encryption algorithms.
