FAQ: Supported Readers, Cards, and Partitions

How many readers do you support?

You can support a virtually unlimited number of doors from a single system. However, you will need to add a PC to your local network for every 2048 doors to manage the field hardware and collect real-time events.

How many card types?

There are 255 Card Types per VertX/Edge controller but with the Universal Format, there is no limit.  The only drawback to the Universal Format is that the internal card numbers will not match the hot stamp and will require an enrollment reader to administrate the card.  IMRON sells USB enrollment readers that have worked successfully for this type of application.

How many partitions separate customer databases?

Virtually Unlimited

Could readers be in several partitions?

Yes, by assigning permissions at the device level in Hardware Manager.
