Nedap Identification Systems has launched MACE Smart: a slim multi-technology reader for mobile access control. The reader is the newest addition to the MACE platform, which enables the use of smartphones in any access control system.

The new reader is able to read virtual credentials on smartphones, but also reads conventional smartcards and supports Bluetooth, NFC and is small enough to be mullion mounted.

“We are committed to unlocking the potential of smartphones as identification technology in access control systems,” says Maarten Mijwaart, General Manager of Nedap Identification Systems. “The release of our newest reader is proof of this commitment. In addition, we are also releasing a renewed version of the MACE Admin Portal that is used to distribute and revoke virtual access control cards. This renewed version now also has an API for seamless integration with any access control system.”
