Wavelynx Ethos Readers

WaveLynx Technologies’ Ethos line of multi-technology contactless access control readers offers a modern aesthetic and a state-of-the-art feature set. Standard technologies include Proximity (125 kHz), Smart (13.56 MHz), NFC, and Bluetooth®, so that customers can set their migration path to secure credentials and security ecosystems. All Ethos readers are fully OSDP™ compliant and are currently enabled for Secure Channel and remote firmware upgrades. Additionally, Ethos readers offer a unique patented feature called OSDP Auto-Detect. They communicate OSDP and Wiegand over the same wires to automatically detect and convert to OSDP Secure Channel protocol when the panel is upgraded, eliminating the need to rewire or reconfigure the reader.
