Blue Tooth Readers

Vanderbilt’s range of Bluetooth Readers is a secure and flexible identification solution bringing the access credential to Android and iOS smartphones. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) removes the need for a physical card or tag. Simultaneous support of smartphones and a wide range of smart cards bridges the gap from traditional access credentials to cardless mobile access control and allows a seamless integration into existing locations. Available communication interfaces: • BLUE-A: Wiegand • BLUE-B: Wiegand (with keypad) • BLUE-C: OSDP • BLUE-D: OSDP (with keypad). The BLUE-EX door exit button facilitates non-contact door release for applications where high standards of hygiene are required.

Economical and versatile, Vanderbilt’s Bluetooth readers are ideal for facilitating distributed workplaces, allowing employees to have their access credentials on their smart devices wherever they go. The readers offer four identification modes for easy access management utilizing “Shake-to-Go” and “Show-to-Go” gesture technology alongside “Handsfree” and “Manual Button” access modes.
