What is OSDP?

OSDP, or Open Supervised Device Protocol, is a communication protocol used in the security industry to enable communication between access control devices, such as card readers, and control panels.

It is an open standard protocol that offers improved security and interoperability compared to older, proprietary protocols like Wiegand. OSDP provides encryption and authentication of communications between devices, enabling more advanced features like two-way communication, which allows for additional information and control in the access control system. Additionally, OSDP is designed to be interoperable between devices from different manufacturers, providing greater flexibility and choice in building an access control system.

News and updates from the leaders in Access Control

SACS Connect is now available!

All previous versions of SACS, including Standard, Professional, and Corporate, have been consolidated into a single version called SACS Connect. This version encompasses all features. functionalities and capabilities of the former SACS Corporate Edition.

SACS Connect is available at “no charge”; however, reader licenses are required for adding readers to the system. This approach provides cost-effective solutions for small and medium installations, allowing clients to purchase reader licenses only for the required number of readers.

Seamless Upgrade to SACS Connect

Existing users of SACS Version 3 Editions can effortlessly be converted to SACS Connect via our cloud License Server. SACS Standard Edition and Professional Edition software can be converted to SACS Connect, enabling “per reader” licensing for additional readers.

This flexibility is particularly advantageous for sites that have reached the maximum door limit (Standard Edition=8 x Doors and Professional Edition=12 Doors), enabling them to expand the system without upgrading to Corporate Edition. SACS Connect allows sites to be converted, and reader licenses can be acquired for the precise number of readers needed.

How can biometrics secure a return on investment?

Outdated management or access control systems can potentially jeopardize the security of businesses. Biometric systems are often considered as a viable solution; however, their perceived cost can act as a deterrent. At Saflec Systems, we firmly believe that embracing biometric solutions is a worthwhile investment that can yield significant financial savings and deliver an impressive Return on Investment (ROI). Rather than allowing the initial cost to dissuade you, we urge you to explore the numerous ways in which biometrics can not only enhance security but also generate cost efficiencies for your business.

The Importance and Benefits of Biometric Readers

In a world that is constantly evolving and expanding, it is crucial to ensure the safety and security of people and property. As technology becomes more prevalent, it is important to adapt and protect ourselves with proper technological equipment. Biometric authentication, through the use of a biometric reader, allows for the automatic identification of individuals by reading their unique physiological and behavioral characteristics, such as irises, fingerprints, and gaits. At Saflec Systems, we believe that investing in biometric solutions is the key to ensuring security in today’s technology-driven world.

The Importance of access control

In a society dominated by crime, at home or at business, it has never been more important to implement measures to secure the safety of valuable belongings and loved ones. It can be argued that the simple lock and key is no longer equipped to provide this vital security. Access control is an updated and effective method of ensuring that access to a business system, certain areas of a premises or physical and virtual resources are restricted, either by an authority or a business.

Advantages of OSDP

The Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) is a communication standard and device-to-controller protocol.

Apart from the quality interoperability that OSDP provides, OSPD has superseded the Wiegand technology and standard. Although Wiegand has served companies well in the past, it is no longer able to provide as effectively for those companies that require highly operable, secure access control systems.Moreover, OSDP has proved to have quality, highly regarded advantages that put OSDP above Wiegand.

Integration is the key

Through our partnerships with leading third-party solution providers, including Idemia, HID, Hikvision, STid, Virdi, and Suprema, Saflec Systems is equipped to deliver a versatile and cost-effective security and identification solution.

By leveraging our integrated SACS software, we can seamlessly incorporate native interfaces with biometric and other specialized products from our partners, providing our clients with a comprehensive and integrated solution that meets their specific needs.
