IFSEC Tech Talks: HID Global – Signo access readers

HID Global: Signo access control readers

IFSEC-FIREX-TechTalks-20In this session, HID Global showcases how its Signo readers can provide a smart and secure access control experience for organisations and their employees. Launched in 2020, the readers offer an adaptable and secure approach to access control, with the range featuring both keypad and contactless versions.

HID explains how the Signo’s enhanced features improve installation and user experience with the benefits of Automatic Surface Detection; Visually Impaired Mode; Intelligent Power Mode; Velocity Attack Detection; Enhanced Tap with HID Mobile Access; and iBeacon support. Within the Tech Talks session, the company explains how the readers provide much quicker access to users, are more accessible, reduce power consumption and can protect themselves from brute force attacks – all because of these six key features.

In the Q&A session, James Burton answers questions covering:

  • How does the Automatic Surface Detection work when fitting readers into turnstiles?
  • Can the readers be reset remotely after responding to a brute force attack?
  • How does iBeacon work and is this something that will come to Android?
  • How easy is it to upgrade to Signo from existing readers?
