Access Control Readers and Reader-Controller

Access Control Reader-Controller
Access Control Reader-Controller

This Reader-Controller is part of the Biometric family of Door Access Control

There are two types of access control systems. One uses simple slave door readers, and the other uses reader-controllers.

The professional series of RFID proximity IP door reader-controllers provide extended functionality.  These IP readers provide advanced functionality such as elevator control, pass-back control, emergency lockdown, and integration with video recording systems.

The readers are part of the pro-series biometric family of IP door readers. The Pro Series biometric readers can detect multiple characteristics such as fingerprint and finger-vein, or facial recognition and fingerprints.

The network-attached Pro-series is designed to be easily installed. You can start with just one IP reader and add additional readers as required. The door readers can operate in standalone mode or as part of a centrally managed enterprise door access control system. The central on-site software TVIP-TIRSoft is licensed per reader.



This indoor professional network-attached RFID reader includes an LCD touchscreen that allows you to enter a PIN code, or set up the reader.

The reader can also be managed using TVIP-TIRSoft central access control software. The readers can be powered using the included power adapter or using the optional PoE kit. The kit includes a power injector and splitter that provides high power for readers and electric locks.

Features of IP Pro Door Readers:

  • Network-attached reader
  • Multiple verification modes include credential and/or pin code
  • Network-attached with the option of power over Ethernet (PoE)

Proximity Slave Readers with Controller

The following door readers can be used indoors or outdoors. They are available in kits that include the indoor Procontrol control box that attaches to the same network as other pro readers.  Another option is the outdoor RFID reader with fingerprint capability.  It attaches directly to the network and doesn’t include a control box.

The kit prevents the reader wires from being used to open an external door secured by an electric lock. The TVIP-Procontrol100 box provides the power to the reader and controls the electric lock. TVIP-TIRSoft software provides the central control and management for these door reader systems

Proximity Access Control Reader


The kit includes the TVIP500H RFID slave reader that communicates to the indoor TVIP-procontrol100-KIT, using Wiegand communication. This very small reader is best when you need just an RFID proximity reader for your outer door.

Access Control Reader with Keypad


The kit includes the TVIPSMK-V RFID reader with a control box that provides a connection to the same network system as other Pro readers.  The reader includes a keypad.

This metallic access control reader is designed to be vandal resistant. It reads proprietary prox. cards or keyfob credentials


RFID Prox Reader with Keypad

The kit includes the TVIP502 RFID reader with keypad and with a control box that provides a connection to the same network system as other Pro readers.

Application Note

The outdoor RFID readers connect to an indoor control box. The controller connects to the same network as other Pro readers.  It also provides increased security.  An outdoor door reader can be vandalized. If they break off the reader and short the wires going to the electric lock they may be able to open the door.  To prevent this type of vandalism, the wires that control the lock are removed from the reader. Instead, the lock control is wired from inside the building.

The door reader provides a coded signal to the TVIP-procontrol100-KIT located inside. The Procontrol determines if the credential is acceptable, and if it is, provides the control signals directly to the electric lock.
