Offer ultimate flexibility with our latest release: three access methods, one smart access control reader! Also available as a module for the 2N® IP Verso & 2N® LTE Verso.
The door access control system dilemma
Here at 2N, we noticed a steeply rising demand for multiple access methods in one building. It makes sense; no two users are the same, and there are often large-scale projects that have high footfall and multiple use cases.
For example, within the residential vertical, whilst we were seeing a marked increase in demand for mobile access control, we also noticed that backup methods were necessary too!
Why? Because whilst mobile access control is fantastic (it’s fast, reliable, secure, and convenient for users) the phone may run out of power, and not every person living in a building can get to grips with it (the elderly in particular). Also, not everyone who needs to access the building (visitors, delivery people, staff) is a permanent resident with the 2N® Mobile Key app installed! These types of users require non-physical authentication as a backup, i.e. PIN code access.
So, what was our solution to this? You already know we offer an access control reader that supports two access methods: but we went one step further to offer our clients the flexibility they need.
The solution? 2N® Access Unit 2.0 Touch Keypad, Bluetooth & RFID!
One smart access control reader – or module for the 2N® IP Verso & 2N® LTE Verso - with no less than three access technologies supported: multi-frequency RFID (including NFC), PIN codes, and Bluetooth-based mobile access control powered by WaveKey technology. What’s great about it?
This new version of the 2N® Access Unit 2.0 is great for any project. Got a modern residential development that is keen on mobile access control but wants to provide PIN codes for one-time access to certain areas? No problem! How about a commercial development that uses RFID cards currently, but also wants the convenience of mobile access control? The 2N® Access Unit 2.0 allows you to offer clients whatever they need and might be the most flexible access control reader on the market!
Not only can you offer more flexibility, but you also won’t need to waste space or money on combining multiple devices and modules. This new 2N® Access Unit 2.0 is a typical 2N access control reader: sleek, compact, and modern.
This 3-in-1 reader was a long time in the making. We tested seven prototypes to ensure that every user, no matter their experience or age, can use this access control reader.
Also as a 2N® IP Verso module
Even the users of the 2N® IP Verso can benefit from this multi-technology reader. From now on, you can save one position in this modular IP intercom and combine all the access methods in one module.
2N® PICard compatible
Are secure RFID cards required in your project? Don’t worry - the 2N® Access Unit 2.0 access control reader supports the reading of MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 / EV3 cards encrypted by the new 2N® PICard Commander!
