Barantec and HID are launching the Everswitch iClass, a combination of Barantec’s metal keypad with HID’s 13.56 MHz contactless smart card reader. For the first time, the security industry can offer end users additional security measures for dual verification with a unit that’s built specifically for high traffic areas and harsh environments. Both components are vandal proof and the card reader unit is uniquely built into the keypad as one integrated piece.
