STid’s Architect Blue series has been certified to meet the Security Industry Association (SIA) Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard for access control security. SIA OSDP Verified is a comprehensive, third-party testing program to ensure products meet the stringent global standard established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
Architect Blue is reportedly one of the only readers to support OSDP File Transfer to update a system’s access control readers remotely. No more time-consuming configuring individual readers on location with configuration cards. Virtual or RFID configuration cards are also available. “Utilising the established SIA OSDP™ North American standard is important for clients requiring higher security such as government applications since it meets federal access control requirements like PKI or FICAM,” Maé Tholoniat, STid product manager. “Our Architect readers have immense flexibility for virtually any use case and now they offer maximum interoperability with other OSDP certified controllers or peripherals further adding to the scalability of our readers.”
STid’s Architect Blue readers are the perfect blend of high security, scalability, and flexibility. STid readers are designed to operate with the STid Mobile ID application, free in the Apple Store or Google Play, which turns smartphones into virtual cards, providing user-friendly and instinctive identification modes.
The Architect Blue series includes seven interchangeable modules that can be connected easily to a smart RFID and Bluetooth core. Intuitive and dynamic, it offers a variety of form factors (mullion, gang box) and features (card reader, keypad, touchscreen, biometrics, QR Code, 125 kHz) for optimal performance in a wide variety of client applications with all functionality and security levels easily upgraded. With a patented tamper protection system, Architect Blue readers protect sensitive data and enables easy deletion of authentication keys, when necessary. They have been designed to withstand harsh environments and high impact, and to operate well outside.
“We strive to ensure future proof/open technology for our customers and OSDP certification for our entire series is an important milestone to continue offering industry leading, high-security access control solutions,” said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. operations manager, STid. “We’ve designed our readers and mobile ID to operate worldwide with any other open solutions an integrator or end-user may use currently or consider in the future.”
