13 Apr Third Millenium UK and LEGIC announce new reader with Bluetooth based on LEGIC Connect
Access control manufacturer Third Millenium UK and security solutions provider LEGIC have announced a new reader with Bluetooth.
Designed in the UK, the new multi-technology solution is part of a RXseries portfolio range of high security card readers and mobile keys. As well as being equipped with smartphone access control they are also able to interface with all standard access control systems via Wiegand or OSDP.
John Harvey, Head of BU Access Control at LEGIC, said: “Third Millennium’s RXseries readers are pioneering a clear trend towards access control based on smartphone app in addition to smartcards. The increased convenience, over-the-air access for credential updating, biometric security and long-distance operation of smartphones provide distinct advantages – plus people seldom forget their smartphones when they go out.”
The contactless readers support Bluetooth® Low Energy as well as LEGIC advant®, MIFARE® and MIFARE® DESFire® technology. Thanks to the LEGIC Connect mobile credentialing platform, RXseries readers are also compatible with Third Millennium’s iOS and Android Mobile Apps while providing end-to-end security, worldwide availability, and simple integration with existing infrastructure.
Third Millenium has been delivering Advanced Access Control Readers since 1996, and has since become a multi award-winning manufacturer specialising in the introduction of new technologies to the access control market. Teaming up with Swiss-based LEGIC brings these to the forefront of the security market.
