The SIFER card reader is a Smart Card reader designed and manufactured by Inner Range (Australian Company).

The SIFER card reader is a multi-drop RS-485 based reader that utilise 128-bit AES encryption from the card through to the door module, providing a far superior level of security than that of traditional Wiegand based card readers. SIFER readers utilise the Mifare DESfire EV1 card format, which use in high level security government and enterprise sites.

As SIFER readers utilise a superset of the OSDP protocol, the readers may also be deployed on any system capable of using OSDP. Up to 16 SIFER readers may be connected in series to the dedicated RS-485 reader port on the Integriti Intelligent LAN Access Module (ILAM) or the new Integriti Access Controller (IAC) for full Reader-In and Reader-Out operation. Up to 4 SIFER readers may be connected to the Integriti Standard LAN Access Module (SLAM) or up to 8 SIFER readers may be connected to the Inception system. SIFER readers are IP 67 rated and available with site specific encryption keys.

ORIA Systems utilise the SIFER card readers with the Inception or Integriti Access Control systems.

This provides the end user / client the peace of mind that the site is protected by the best technology with the highest level of encryption (between the card reader to the door controller).

In addition, ORIA Systems utilise the SIFER KEYPAD card reader where higher security level is required (combination of PIN code and a valid access card is required to enter).

The SIFER keypad is a combined IP67 rated keypad and smart card reader that allows dual credential card & pin high security access control, (pin only or card only is also supported).

ORIA Systems offer the following credentials with the SIFER card reader:

  • Access Card
  • Access Fob
  • Wrist Band (water proof)
