Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
A small device (BioConnect Link) is installed between the reader and the ACM panel. The Wiegand from the door reader is plugged into the device inputs. The same terminal then outputs the Wiegand back out to the panel.
When a user taps their card, BioConnect Link reads the Wiegand signal correlated to the user’s card with a 2FA credential. A step-up request is then sent to the user’s mobile phone. Once BioConnect Link receives an ‘Approved’ response, the Wiegand signal is released to the ACM panel to open the door.
How long does it take to install?
The installation of the device is simple and takes less than 30 minutes per device.
Is my private data being sent to the cloud?
All communication to the cloud is encrypted and your PII, such as card numbers, utilizes a 1-way hash that cannot be deciphered with our cloud services. BioConnect software services will not know your raw card information.
What kind of data compliance and device compliance can I expect?
Best in class digital security, using digital cryptography and Mutual TLS1.2 authentication for secured communication in software services and FCC declaration of conformity for the device.
Does BioConnect Link need to be connected via ethernet?
BioConnect Link can be connected via ethernet, wifi and mesh WiFi if the signal strength is low in certain areas of the devices.
What happens if the power goes out or I lose internet connection?
Mechanical failsafe or fail-secure can kick in to ensure that all users can be configured either to be on bypass mode by letting the signal to go through to the ACM and continue as normal, or all doors are secured until power is restored. We also keep a list of the last 100 transactions locally on the device and use that for offline matching. This will ensure any of the last 100 cards tapped at the reader will be able to get through the door even when offline.
