The Wireless Portable Reader (WPR400) was designed to extend a facility’s access control to remote locations at a moment’s notice. It utilizes the same credential reader modules offered with our AD Series electronic locks.

The WPR400 is a battery-operated device and can be handheld or placed in a convenient temporary location to allow for credential verification.

WPR400 is designed to be intuitive to use and easy to set-up. When used within range, the WPR400 is ready to accept its first credential within moments of powering up and connecting to a previously paired PIM400.

When configured and used in cache mode, the WPR400 keeps a local database of access grants for the last 1,000 valid users to allow use beyond range of the PIM400.

Whether used for mustering, a check point, or bus loading registration, the WPR400 can be used to extend the perimeter of any facility on a temporary or permanent basis.

WPR400 can also be manually configured to operate as a wireless portable tester with the ability to evaluate the installation locations of PIM400s and AD-400 devices.
