Wieguard 3

The smallest form factor, all-in-one smart access modules

Wieguard3® is the latest generation of highly integrated and versatile access control modules with improved industrial-grade security features, based on robust Wiegand communication protocol and uniquely developed by Made in Germany technology.
Coupled with any electric/magnetic door latch, striker or lock and a choice of keypad/card reader, Wieguard3 will fit seamlessly to any existing entry setup, eliminating the need of traditional physical keys while ensuring durable and professional operation.
The device is available in different variants, depending on application type, peripheral attachments and power requirements. We also offer commissioned customizations based on specific customer needs. Physical size and rating specifications of the control unit may vary accordingly.

The small footprint allows installation in tight spaces.

The use of long-lasting solid state electronic components, coupled with a cutting-edge assembling technology, makes it possible to scale down our products to the minimum size required to guarantee the most reliable operation even in heavy-duty and harsh environments.
The compact form factor of the main controller, its remote management and reduced power consumption makes it ideal for custom smart home installations as well as for low-impact integration in large scale connected entry systems (e.g.: zero-maintenance hotel rooms, automated multi-user facility gates or supervised office spaces).
The smallest variant measuring only 25x45x25mm (with external power supply) or 95x65x25mm (power supply included) and exhibiting a modern, neat design in high-quality black acrylic case, can be integrated without visual interference into most residential units or even hidden within walls or ceiling gaps.

Main features:

  • Keycode only, contactless card only or mixed access mode
  • Configurable cards with Facility Code and Tag ID
  • Board recovery super-user Reset code
  • Web interface for a user-friendly remote monitoring and configuration
  • Device ID and Client ID, to allow multi-station and 2nd-level user management
  • RoHS compliant hardware
  • Password protected configuration webserver to prevent unauthorized access to settings
  • Independent offline operation, no need for continuous internet connection
  • User settings saved immediately locally and retained in case of power interruption
  • Control and configuration via web browser or dedicated Android App
  • Optional customized reader to restrict only cards or only keypad inputs

Secure backend interface for total control.

Thanks to its dedicated web-based control panel, the user can access online all functions, inspect and download logged entry data for each associated device from everywhere, anytime.
Monitoring of current system state and modification of device settings is possible through direct ping communication or alternatively with relayed data-pulling method, allowing for complex network setups behind firewall/proxy restrictions.
The database and backend webpages are hosted on a proprietary server based in Germany with daily backup, featuring configurable automatic email notifications and individual client/user settings, all protected by the current GDPR EU regulations. The access to the web control pages is customized based on the user-level visibility scope per device, restricted to verified subscribers only and access is granted on an active license period basis.

Benefits over mainstream products:

  • Easy installation and configuration, minimal rework required in case of mechanical doors
  • Miniature form factor with no ventilation needed
  • Low-power consumption, no batteries required, avoiding regular maintenance
  • Response to a variety of customizable keypad codes with different behaviours/purposes:
    • Fixed PIN codes (for master or administrator’s use)
    • Fixed PIN followed by card reading (for 2-factor authentication)
    • Fixed PIN followed by user interaction (numerical response to a variable visual challenge)
    • Timed PIN code (valid only for a set period of time)
    • OTP Rolling code (one-time-access, for concierge or service use)
    • “Fixed until next”, PIN code which activates a hidden code for rotation (e.g.: a new code becomes valid for the next tenant, disabling the current one)
  • Options are available to retrofit on any type of door:
    • Traditional locks, no need to replace the cylinder, mechanical key can still be used along (striker will be installed on the door frame)
    • 220V AC electric/magnetic door locks
    • Any existing low-voltage electrical lock
  • Factory reset card (stealth quick erase)
  • Support of both RFID cards and MiFARE cards (Wiegand W26 and W34 protocol standards), depending on fitted reader
  • Each device stores 8 keypad PIN codes and up to 186 cards
  • Only wired connection, to guarantee lag-free operation and robustness against tampering (no wireless attack possible)
  • Control panel for diagnostics and controls
  • Configurable parameters on-the-fly, no need to reboot the board
  • Remote synchronization of all User settings
  • Users name association configurable on the server backend control panel
  • Fully customizable event logging on the cloud. This includes room occupancy status, abnormal door opening and security violation
  • Advanced access code changing rules based on all monitored events or time-based, to automate on check-out day and time
  • Secure rolling-token access to system settings (also working offline)
  • Smart offline detector, with counter of missed "home calls"
  • Real-time alarms via email on access events, wrong attempts and unexpected door openings
  • Watchdog functionality to ensure fail-safe, uninterrupted operation of the board
  • Remote configuration update, either by direct access or pull synchronization, to accommodate any network setup
  • Narrowband technology, requiring only small amounts of data when the pull function is enabled (ex.: 140kB per day on a typical update frequency)
