This section lists the Security Center access control features that are supported by each HID unit model.

Supported keypad reader options

Card and PIN operation depends on the type of unit and the keypad reader installed.

For both HID iCLASS and Prox readers, the Keypad configuration setting option is selected at the time of purchase. Supported options include the following:
  • Option 00: “Keypad configuration setting option” of 00 = Buffer one key, no parity, 4-bit message.
  • Option 14: “Keypad configuration setting option” of 14 = Buffer one to five keys (Standard 26-bit output). This reader option is also known as “Galaxy Mode”.

Supported PIN length

By default, HID controllers only accept PIN numbers up to 5 digit long. You can increase this limit to 8 digits for readers using Card and PIN mode, and to 15 digits for readers using Card or PIN mode.

Supported readers

HID units support most industry standard card readers that output card data using the Wiegand protocol (up to 128-bit card formats).

HID SmartID readers (MIFARE and DESFire) are also supported.

1 HID states that a V1000 controller can support a maximum of 32 downstream interface modules (16 on each RS-485 serial bus). However, the performance tests run by Genetec Inc. indicate that as a “best practice”, 20 downstream interface modules should not be exceeded (10 per serial bus).
