Unique features and benefits of our Technology Partners
The information below is based on the subjective opinions of our staff and the feedback
from the installers. Please do not treat it as an official feature list or the selection
guide. Try different products and use your own judgment.
Peer-to-peer TCP/IP communication between controllers. Makes it easy to implement
ant-passback in the large buildings. APB function is neither software-dependent nor limited
to one controller.
Plenty of RAM and Flash memory. V2000 EVO controller has 64MB RAM for fast operation and
256MB Flash for data storage. This translates into 250,000 users and 100,000 events!!!
Lifetime warranty on cards. HID cards hardly ever fail. But it always nice to say word
“lifetime” to your customer. Customers can be sure that they will not be stuck with 30%
failed cards in a couple of years. The cost of getting replacement cards, reissuing and
distributing to people is much higher than the cost of a card itself, thus long term
reliability really matters.
Lifetime warranty on readers. A reader is not a sophisticated device, however it is often
subjected to harsh conditions: heat, cold, humidity, dust, static. If a reader fails the
inconvenience caused is much greater than the cost of the reader itself: people cannot go
through the door and a repair technician has to visit the site to replace it. Therefore we
believe that a genuine product with lifetime warranty from a reputable manufacturer such as
HID is the safest choice.
Wide selection of reader designs, colors and mounting options.
Widest RFID product selection from a single source: compact R10 and ProxPoint readers,
very well built RK40 and ProxPro keypad readers, medium-range R90 and MaxiProx readers,
European size Prox80 and R30 readers, 13.56Mhz and 125Khz dual frequency readers, desktop
readers with USB interface, Magnetic stripe readers, smart cards and many more options are
added every year.
Top-level security. Secure card formats (such as iClass SE) and mutual authentication
between readers and cards. If you choose the enhanced security option no one will be able
to buy, program or clone cards that would work on readers of your system.
Most widely used readers and cards Worldwide.
Wide selection of OEM modules and largest network of development partners. Nearly every
biometric reader or time clock manufacturer has HID-compatible products. Business-class
laptops have iClass tags.

Powered relays on HID Edge readers/controllers. Just move a jumper and you can power a
lock directly from the Edge unit. Less wiring, faster installation, easy maintenance.
Push-type communication to host. Controller initiates connection to host software, sends
regular heartbeat messages and reports alarm events immediately as they happen. This is the
right approach to reduce network traffic and to improve alarm reporting spee
Controller database switch-over. Many controllers require user database to be erased before
new database can be loaded. During the time of user upload, controllers either cannot
process requests, or use incomplete database. HID VertX & EVO controllers solve this problem
by database switchover function: they keep on operating and using old database until new
database is received.
