Upgrading technology and replacing hardware to mitigate these risks can be expensive and time-consuming. By choosing WaveLynx readers as a starting point, you can transition your legacy technology or start from scratch with ANY access control system — at your own pace. Even if it’s just one reader at a time.

WaveLynx - Getting Off Prox

Getting Off Prox?

Most legacy systems are still using 125 kHz low-frequency proximity technology. This read-only technology is over 25 years old and although these cards are inexpensive and easy to source, they are not secure and can be easily cloned. In order to make the transition from legacy technology to a more secure, smart technology, customers often choose to deploy both multi-frequency credentials and readers. WaveLynx Ethos™ multi-technology readers can support legacy low-frequency prox, encrypted high frequency, and mobile credentials simultaneously without any performance issues.

By choosing WaveLynx readers as a starting point, you can transition off of prox at your own pace. Even if it’s just one reader at a time.


How do we guarantee a seamless transition? Wavelynx has a patented “Prox Filter” which comes standard as a configurable feature in every reader.

Going OSDP?

WaveLynx readers have a patented feature called OSDP™ Autodetect℗. This means no extra labor during your panel upgrade.

MyPass features zero-touch cloud-issued credentials for manual enrollment into your access control system.

By choosing WaveLynx readers as a starting point, you can adopt the most affordable, easy to deploy, and risk free mobile solution on the market.
