AMAG Technology, a worldwide provider of complete end-to-end security management solutions for access control and video management, now offers two Symmetry™ F2F card readers designed to complement the Symmetry SR Controller range of products. The multi-technology, multi-frequency readers support supervised F2F protocol, which is a proprietary reader communication protocol and wiring scheme used by the Symmetry SR product, as well as by some legacy access control systems. The Symmetry F2F readers have a modular, compact design, and support a range of both proximity and smartcard technologies, making them an ideal choice for many locations, environments and applications. When used with the Symmetry SR Controller range, customers will be able to expand and maintain their systems, and upgrade their outdated reader technology with the Symmetry F2F reader to retain system compatibility. The Symmetry F2F reader is compatible with existing F2F wiring infrastructure, making it the lowest cost solution for many applications. “Offering Symmetry F2F readers provides options for customers looking to install the Symmetry SR Controller range of products or upgrade their legacy access control systems that currently support F2F protocol,” said AMAG Technology, Product Manager, David Weinbach.
