News for the Access Control Professional


Dear Reader of The Reader,

In this installment of The Reader, we're excited to offer readers a selection of five of our most popular articles taken from 2018. These articles touch on a number of timely topics, including channel, competition, credentialing and cloning. Additionally, I asked members of our sales and support teams to provide relevant comment on one of their favorite stories. It's our intention that these articles and associated comment will spur dialog, understanding, enjoyment and better business!

1. A Simple Solution to Address Card Cloning

By Shep Sheppard, January — As seen in The Reader

“A pitfall of 125-kHz proximity technology is the fact that credential cloning is possible. I like that Shep's article offers a thrifty solution, adding keypad readers, such as our P-640 Patagonia, to a facility's perimeter to easily add an extra layer of security.”

2. An Introduction to Wiegand

By Shep Sheppard, August — As seen in The Reader

“When I joined Farpointe in 2005, seriously, I don't think I'd ever heard the word 'Wiegand'. While today it's often maligned, I suspect this data format/physical interface/electrical signal/card technology will be with us for many years to come. Thank you Shep for making Mr. Wiegand's discovery so accessible.”
