HID have announced it will preview its new centralised reader management solution, HID Linq, at GSX 2023. HID Linq is designed to make the configuration and updates of physical access systems simpler, faster and more efficient.
“Managing readers has become more time-consuming than ever, and we are excited to be showcasing our solution at GSX,” said Sanjay Roy, Senior Director for Device Management with HID. “Our initial HID Linq offering is compatible with our entire line of HID Signo readers and its capabilities will be extended over time across a wide landscape of devices, connectivity and management software.
“Our vision is to streamline the secure process of remotely managing access control devices and major credential technologies across the full spectrum of on-prem, cloud and mobile deployments.”
HID will demonstrate how users can simultaneously update multiple HID Signo readers connected to a Mercury red board controller via Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) or by using a serial adapter over a USB connection. Even the largest reader fleets can be updated quickly and easily.
