Turn any card reader into an IP device by connecting it to a Freedom Encryption Bridge. Card usages are sent as encrypted messages to a local or remote server(s) and control panels are not required. Viscount’s Freedom Encryption Bridges are compatible with wiegand, smart card, and FIPS 201 formats and can read the cards of virtually every access control panel supplier. By upgrading to Freedom Plus you can protect against network failure by having Encryption Bridges communicate with multiple synchronized servers.
Each IP bridge includes specialized card access components including reader ports as well as inputs and door outputs. When a card is presented at a reader, the reader sends a message to the bridge that encrypts the message. The encrypted message is sent through the network to a local or remote server for validation and an encrypted message is then sent to the bridge to enable door control. All Freedom bridges use bi-directional AES encryption.
