Access control manufacturer, STid has announced its new SPECTRE nano reader, setting a new standard in perimeter access control and simplified visitor management. The multi-technology reader quickly recognises employees, visitors, vendors, and their vehicles – simultaneously – for smooth, hands-free access control without compromising security. An ideal solution for facilities like car parks, industrial sites, campuses and any other secured environment where a mix of people and vehicles need to be identified to enable instinctive, smooth yet very secure access control.
The hands-free reader reportedly increases speed of entry for anyone – or anything – on two feet, two wheels, four wheels or a whole fleet. It is able to read windshield tags, key fobs, cards, smartphones, or wearables using UHF and Bluetooth to leverage end-user preferences for easier adoption. It is also part of the STid Mobile ID ecosystem, which turns smartphones into virtual cards for both vehicle and pedestrian access control.
STid designed SPECTRE nano for easy integration regardless of managers’ tech expertise. The outside packaging is as rugged and durable as the technology to ensure the reader can stand up to harsh environments – everything from shock, heavy rain, and dust, to salt, frost, and fire. SPECTRE nano offers customised branding options to fit in at a bus station, corporate office, or private community, and is able for use in high-security industries. A cost-effective solution, the new reader can be installed and (almost) forgotten, with no maintenance or batteries required.
“The SPECTRE nano reader may be small in size, bit is a full-blown long range UHF reader combined with the Bluetooth technology that is used in our powerful and versatile STid Mobile ID solution,” said Vincent Dupart, CEO of STid. “It is the missing link between vehicle identification and smart identification of people. There no longer is a need to install multiple readers at entrances where employees, visitors, contractors and their vehicles enter the facility.
“It can easily be integrated with any access control system or parking management system. Which basically means that any perimeter entrance can now be equipped easily with our STid Mobile ID solution and our vehicle identification solution. And since it supports both solutions simultaneously, it is now also possible to identify the vehicle, using UHF, and the driver, using STid Mobile ID. This prevents the car from being used as a modern-day Trojan Horse.”
Designed for global customers, SPECTRE nano uses OSDP and SSCP protocols and has EAL5+-certified storage. Data authenticity and confidentiality are ensured using encryption methods recommended by worldwide organisations, e.g., ANSSI- & FIPs-compliant. Encrypted, signed credentials provide anti-cloning and anti-replay protection and managers can quickly erase security keys, when necessary.
SPECTRE nano will be available by the end of the year. For more information, please visit the landing page.
