WaveLynx Ethos Readers

Secure Access Control Readers | Secure Communications

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 execute a seamless migration path to secure credentials and security ecosystems. All Ethos readers are fully OSDP™ compliant and currently enabled for Secure Channel and remote firmware upgrades. Additionally, Ethos™ readers offer a unique patented feature called OSDP Autodetect. They communicate with OSDP over the same Wiegand 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.
