  • Nicely built USB HID card rader for all OSes

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Nice build, good enclosure finishing quality. Works as an USB HID keyboard so no drivers needed for most of operating systems, including Linux. Powered by USB cable, so you just hook it up and go.

    Cons:

    Couldn't read our key entry cards which I thought were EMV4100 125kHz, but apparently not so. All-plastic and not water-proof construction, so for outdoors installations you need additional weather protection.

    OtherThoughts:

    A potentially very nice device to tap into using info form existing key entry cards---though you need to verify compatibility with your particular cards. Quite low-cost.

    Bottomline:

    A small, clean, easy to setup reader that should interface to most operating systems without additional drivers. Need to test compatibility with your own cards if you plan to read existing cards.
