Security Center 5.9

If secure mode is available on your HID units, you can enable it when enrolling them in Security Center.

What you should know

It is considered a best practice to enable Secure mode on HID access control units, because it protects against packet sniffing, replay attacks, and injection attacks.

The HID Admin password is required to enable Secure mode.

For supported firmware versions, refer to the Security Center Release Notes.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Access Control task.
  2. Click Access Control Unit.
  3. In the Network endpoint section of the Unit information tab, enter the username and password of the Security Center administrator and select Secure mode.
  4. Click Next.
