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.
- 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”.
