Simplified operation

Flexible interoperable


The reader’s Wiegand output easily interfaces with most existing Wiegand protocol access control panels. Different formats are available: Wiegand 32 or 37 bits.


No configuration required

The Architect® Blue Hybrid reader is pre-configured. Plug & Play, no configuration is required to read Easyline RFID or mobile credentials.

Seamless technological migration

The Architect® Blue Hybrid keypad reader makes it easy to manage extensions, upgrades and technology migrations. During a migration or a complex multi-site configuration, it can read a heterogeneous mix of cards.

Multi-factor identification

With both reader and keypad available together, the Architect® Blue Easyline reader allows double-factor identification by combining identification by RFID or virtual card and a PIN code.

The Easyline keypad mode operates in "Card or Key" mode in 4-bit format only.

Welcome to high security

Anssi flat blanc

Easyline offers enhanced security through data encryption and mutual authentication between the card and reader. It uses the latest MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 contactless chip technologies with new data security mechanisms:

  • Secure Messaging EV2: secure transaction method based on AES-128 with protection against interleaving and replay attacks.
  • Proximity Check: improved protection against relay attacks.

By using security-standard encryption and advanced key management mechanisms, Easyline reduces the risk of duplicated card or compromised data.

Standing the test of time

Design to push the boundaries, the Architect® Blue Hybrid keypad reader design has been developed to withstand harsh environments (IP65 level) and to offer a high impact resistance (IK08).
