Edgy, easier for installers to work with, and built to help you keep up with new technologies, the aptiQ MT15 multi-technology reader has garnered a ton of buzz since its unveiling. With an open architecture design, aptiQ readers can be integrated into any existing access control system. This means a one size fits all solution for handling your current proximity needs today, and preparing you for smart technology in the future, along with the next step up, NFC technology, where phones will be used as credentials. With this much functionality in one reader, you will save time, and avoid the tension, and gargantuan costs that can come with having to switch all readers over at once. aptiQ lets you make a gradual changeover to the new technologies at a pace that is comfortable for you.

    The MT15 will accept credentials ranging in the standard Weigand 125 kHz 26 bit cards or 13.56 mHz Smart card credential. If you have a card that is within these ranges it will work with this reader. The reader is sold individually and the cards would have to be purchased separately. Also keep in mind that this is not a stand alone unit. This reader will tie into most access control panels. We do have compatible credentials in stock.
