Access Control Innovation

Secure. Open. Interoperable.

WaveLynx has a long history of developing state-of-the-art credential and reader solutions for the Commercial Electronic Access Control Market, having designed multiple generations of product dating back to the advent of contactless smart cards in North America.

OSDP Remote Reader Firmware Upgrades

The Ethos reader line is designed using the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) recently released OSDP™ standard, V2.1.7 enabling secure channel and upgrade capabilities remotely from the access control host system. The Ethos reader line is the first access control reader on the market that is designed, tested, and validated by multiple third party's test facilities as remotely upgradable over a secure channel.

They are proven to deliver the following functionality:

  • Bi-directional communication between reader and system over a secure channel
  • Firmware updates from host to the reader over Secure Channel
  • Reader configuration changes pushed from the host to reader over Secure Channel

WaveLynx OSDP Remote Readers

OSDP Autodetect 

We are excited to announce a breakthrough in wall mount reader design. We offer a unique patented feature known as OSDP™ Autodetect℗. We have invented a way to significantly simplify the transition from Wiegand to OSDP™. We have designed an auto-detection feature into our readers, further enriching the concept of not having to touch the reader again once it is installed. WaveLynx believes that all Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) will be communicating via OSDP™ eventually, so we have designed an OSDP™ auto detect feature, facilitating the automatic conversion from Wiegand protocol to OSDP™ using the existing wiring when the access control panel hardware is communicating in OSDP.

WaveLynx Prox Filter 

Eliminate Performance Issues

Another unique, patented feature available, upon request, is the WaveLynx “Prox Filter” innovation which enables the reader to filter out the low frequency transmission on a Dual-Technology credential. This feature allows for a smooth, gradual and seamless transition from legacy Proximity technology to secure Smart technology. Call WaveLynx to design your transition plan today.

LEAF Compatibility

Driving Interoperability
We are proud to support the only program designed to combat proprietary reader & credential technology. LEAF is a secure, interoperable concept, enabled by manufacturers who believe in supporting a customer’s right to choose. At WaveLynx, we are passionate about driving interoperability into the market, so we have developed a way for our customers to gain total control over their credential ecosystem. For customers who elect to utilize LEAF credentials, WaveLynx offers them the opportunity to own a unique encryption keyset. From there, customers may either manage their own keys or depend on several capable, cooperative manufacturers to interoperate with the protected LEAF keys. Deploying a fully LEAF-enabled ecosystem gives users unlimited options for supporting devices and applications, as well as the most freedom when it comes to open-sourcing and fair pricing.
