Nedap’s MACE Smart is an access control reader that enables people to access buildings, parking facilities and event locations with their smartphone. This elegant reader is able to combine mobile technologies, like NFC and BLE, with conventional smartcard technology. The MACE Smart is small enough to be mullion mounted in only a few steps and thanks to its symmetric design, the reader can be mounted both horizontally and vertically. The ‘LED smile’ and the integrated buzzer provide users with immediate feedback. This slim mobile access control reader is the perfect solution for doors that require a combination of security and convenience. The robust polycarbonate housing and the parylene coating on the PCB make the reader suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
The MACE Smart supports a variety of well-established industry-standard communication protocols, such as Wiegand, clock & data and serial connections like RS485. This enables seamless integration into any existing or new building access control system. Next to the reader, the MACE platform consists of a cloud based service and a smartphone app to manage and use virtual access credentials.
