WAVE ID® Mobile Mini Reader

This dual-frequency reader offers Bluetooth® low energy technology for reading proximity (125/132 kHz) or contactless smart cards (13.56 MHz) and mobile credentials. With a dual card reader and Bluetooth low energy module in one device, installation only requires one USB port—freeing additional ports for other peripherals. Four credential configurations (up to three card types and one mobile) accommodate multi-card environments, with the added flexibility of using smartphones for authentication. A user-selectable volume control includes a beeper on/off setting for noise-sensitive areas.
