With Secure Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP), you can move away from Wiegand readers without making a large infrastructure investment, because only the readers need to be replaced.

The following OSDP readers were certified and are supported by Synergis™ Softwire 11.2. Certified readers were tested for use with random-key encrypted communication. Other OSDP-compliant readers are supported by design.

Supported Synergis™ appliances

OSDP readers connect directly to the RS-485 ports on a Synergis™ Cloud Link appliance.

The Synergis™ Cloud Link has a built-in 120 ohm termination resistor for each RS-485 port that can be activated using the DIP switch on each of the four RS-485 ports. The Synergis™ Cloud Link also has an internal fail-safe resistor network for each RS-485 port. Adding an external fail-safe resistor network would therefore affect the signal integrity and be counterproductive.

Streamvault™ appliances are not equipped with RS-485 ports, and are therefore not compatible with direct OSDP readers.
