2N has recently launched the 2N Access Unit 2.0, an access control reader capable of simultaneously supporting multi-frequency RFID cards, PIN and Bluetooth-based smartphone credentials.

The company has confirmed that the new solution offers flexibility for different users, depending on their needs or preferences.

In an office environment, for instance, employees may prefer fast access via their smartphone, whereas others may be more comfortable carrying an RFID card or using a PIN code.

“Maximising flexibility”

The 2N Access Unit 2.0 is compatible with 2N PICard, which enables administrators to create a unique cryptographic keyset for every site and then use that keyset to encode new Protected Identity Credentials which are put on to RFID cards. 

“The 2N Access Unit 2.0 is a direct response to rapidly growing demand from our customers for more flexibility over their access control options,” commented Michael Nicholson, Business Development Manager, UK & Ireland, 2N. 

“One of the central pillars of the current era in access control – which we at 2N call ‘Access Control 3.0’ – is multi-user technology, because projects have different needs and no two users are the same.

“Maximising usability therefore means maximising flexibility.”
