Card Readers

OmniClass™ 2.0 Mobile-Enabled/Ready Wall Switch Reader

OmniClass™ 2.0 mobile-enabled/ready wall switch readers incorporate smart card technology and offer superb reliability, consistent read range, and ease of installation.


OmniClass™ 2.0 mobile-enabled/ready wall switch readers offer superb reliability, consistent read range, and ease of installation. They incorporate smart card technology allowing multiple applications per physical card and optional mobile credential capability. OmniClass can retrofit any Wiegand output reader, including standard HID® or Honeywell proximity readers. Smart card technology is ideally suited for access control, logical (PC) access, storage of biometric templates, parking, secure IDs with embedded tamper-proof digital photos, ePurse, and many other applications requiring secure and reliable read/write cards. Leveraging HID’s Mobile Access™ platform, OmniClass now offers optional Bluetooth® capability allowing users to use a compatible smartphone as a credential. Readers can be ordered in either mobile-ready (ready for mobile credential use except mobile keys are not loaded) or mobile-enabled (mobile keys are loaded and enabled for use with mobile credentials) configurations. To make it easier for customers to transition to a smart card system from a 125 kHz proximity card system, the range includes options that can support HID Prox, EM4102, and AWID proximity technologies. These multi-technology readers work with all technologies simultaneously and will allow the user to transition to smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities. Whether reading proximity, mobile, smart, or multi-technology credentials, identical user identification data formats are sent to the panel, keeping the data transparent to the user.
