BT955

The BT955 is a stylish mobile credential reader using Bluetooth BLE technology. Able to integrate seamlessly with existing systems, the dual technology reader allows for using Bluetooth mobile credentials and 13.56MHz smart credentials such as MIFARE DESFire. The low profile and slimline shape allow for easy installation on door architraves or mullions where larger readers will not fit. It can be mounted directly on a metal door frame with no adverse effect on the reader’s function. In addition, the BT955 is available in a range of secure options right up to military grade technology and encryption and provides a flexible solution through customisation to suit all access control requirements.

    Benefits

    • Convenience of the BQT Mobile credential, simple to use, simple to manage.

     

    • Its narrow design offers an aesthetically pleasing, non-obstructive reader that takes up less physical space than traditional cases while being engineered with robust materials to provide effective access control in the most challenging environments.

     

    • With the capability to incorporate physical credentials in addition to Bluetooth functionality, the BT955 offers both preconfigured and customized operations. It can be configured to accept your custom key and data formats while seamlessly integrating with your existing security configurations, providing a convenient migration path from traditional physical card-based systems to mobile credentials.

     

    • The BT955 offers installation flexibility and integration with many existing access panels and can be customised to suit a proprietary system. When you receive your reader, all you will have to do is connect them in to secure your site with your existing access control system.

     

    Ideal use case

    Suited to many institutions where the ease and efficiency of credential management is s priority with the ability to add and revoke credentials at the click of a button. Small to medium enterprises as well as institutions with multiple users requiring unlimited access to the facility.

    Compatibility

    Bluetooth Mobile Credential, MIFARE Classic & DESFire readers and smart cards opens the gateway to multiple security applications, including access control and biometric authentication. Additionally, the BT955 can read multiple card types making it ideal for companies looking to slowly upgrade their access control system to a more secure credential.

    Robust design

    Its sleek casing offers a robust exterior designed to withstand tampering and maintain integrity during a security threat or incident. Built to withstand common reader threats, including excessive force from a hammer or heavy tool, the BT955 will continue to operate and secure access even after being damaged.

    Low power

    The BT955 uses power when needed but goes into a standby mode when not in use. Low power paired with high[1]security access control makes the BT955 reader a preferred product choice for many industry leaders by offering an eco-friendly and economical, yet secure solution.

    Tamper Monitor

    Security threats aren’t always captured on camera and pose a real risk to unauthorised access. We know the peace of mind many organisations need when it comes to alerting them to security threats and the BT955 offers a tamper monitor that will alert the security team if there has been a breach attempt at one of the readers.

    Secure encryption

    Working with your current system, the BT953 offers flexible access control, with the option to use Wiegand, OSDP or Encrypted RS485 access data output. The BT953 additional benefits of being cost-effective and easy to wire and deploy across your sites where different levels of encryption are needed for secure access control.
