IP Door Readers

Isonas Door Access Control

Security SystemIP Isonas door reader/controllers provide the Intelligence at the door. This professional access control system is connected to the network and uses PoE.

The Isonas system is easy to install. The controller includes all the Power for the electric lock It also provides connections for door sensors, relays, Request to Exit (REX) buttons, motion detectors, and more.

The Isonas system supports proximity credentials and mobile credentials that use your smartphone to open the door.

RC04 and RC03 Family of IP door reader/controllers connect to the network using TCP/IP protocol. They are just like any other IP network device. You can choose the Isonas IP readers or the pro-series IP readers.

Isonas Features:

  • Network-attached reader
  • Powered over PoE
  • IP Door Readers support HID, Smartcard, and Mobile credentials
  • Supports Mobile Credentials
  • The IP reader provides 12 V DC for locks so a separate power run is not required
  • No control panel required
  • Your smartphone can be used as the credential with the RC04 IP reader – Bluetooth connect using Pure Mobile App
  • Operates even if the network is down

The latest Isonas RC04 readers are available in a number of different styles and capabilities. You can select models that mount on the side of the door frame (mullion) or on the wall. The models provide the option to use your smartphone (Bluetooth) as the credential.

Features of RC04 Family

Isonas Access Control Management Software

The Isonas door management software is available as a cloud subscription or as an on-site license. The advantage is the cloud service which is provided as a subscription service. The software provides basic access control functions that make it a good small to a medium solution.


IP Door Readers

Door access control can be implemented using intelligent network-attached IP reader-controllers or by using an IP controller with attached readers.

IP Reader-Controller

The reader-controller connects directly to the network. There are three types of network-attached readers:

IP Controller with Reader(s)

Readers connect through the controller to the network. Up to two readers can be connected to the network-attached controller


Access Control Comparison

The professional biometric IP readers and Isonas reader/controller include a built-in access controller. The Isonas system is easier to install while the Hartmann Enterprise access control system is more flexible and provides increased functionality.

For more about installation and the wiring topography of these access control systems, take a look at our article, IP Door Access Systems Wiring.

IP Door Access Control Technology

This is a new technology that doesn’t use a central access control box.  The intelligence is at the door with the reader instead of being in the central control box. This means that you can start with one reader and add new readers very easily. For more information about how this new IP access control technology compares to the old technology, take a look at our article Comparison of Door Control Systems.

The latest IP readers support various card credential RFID proximity formats.  Besides using credentials, you can use pin codes or even your smartphone to open the door.   Select readers with keypad, indoor or outdoor models, with trim kits and pre-cut pigtail wiring.  The readers accept HID, Isonas format proximity credentials, and include a choice of pigtails (10′ or 25′).

Since these door readers attach to the network and use PoE (just like IP cameras) they are very easy to integrate allowing you to create a complete security and safety system.

We provide complete integrated systems so please contact us (914-944-3425) for help designing your system.

IP Bridge for Classic Door Readers

IP-bridge-diagramConvert your old door control panel system to the latest IP connect system.

IP Bridge hardware allows you to convert panel-based access control readers at your existing doors to our pure IP solution. By replacing the subpanels with a direct network connection – and eliminating the need for specialized wiring and backup power – IP Bridge not only allows you to grow your system but also to save money by reducing equipment and maintenance costs on your existing doors.

Access Control Management Software is used to add all the users who will be granted access to the doors. The management software allows you to control who enters, at what door, and when they can enter.

Take a look at all the IP Access Control Systems available.

There are Long Range Access Readers That can be used for applications where the credential is far away from the reader such as a gate used to control entry to a parking lot.

Door Access System Integration

We provide integration of door access control systems with IP camera systems and door intercoms. These door locks can be integrated with IP camera systems and intercoms that can be used to manually control entry.  Contact us for help in creating your IP security system.
