The Suprema devices can be used as an access control unit itself, but there may be a situation where the units need to be connected to 3rd party access controllers via wiegand as an intelligent reader providing fingerprint or face authentication. In this case, there will be needs to send out a wiegand signal after a successful authentication. In BioStar 2, the concept has been set to send out a specific wiegand value based on what credentials the user has and which are used.
How it works
When the device is set to send out a wiegand signal on a successful authentication, the way it operates will be different based on the credentials that were used.
In BioStar 2, up to 8 cards can be allocated to a single user.
When the device is set to send out wiegand signals, using a card will be straight forward. It will send out the card data that was interpreted by the device. For example, if the HID Corporate 1000 card having ID as 1512-368214 was used for the authentication, the card data will be sent via wiegand in an HID Corporate 1000 format.
As mentioned before, the card authentication will send the card data based on which card was used.
What will happen when using a fingerprint for the authentication? The answer is that it still will send out the card ID. However, in this case it will send the first card ID that is registered for the user.
If the user having 8 cards, authenticates with a fingerprint, the card ID that was registered first will be sent out via wiegand. For example, if the user authenticates with a fingerprint, the card data 56-41252 will be sent out via wiegand in a 26 bit SIA Standard format.
How to send a wiegand signal using fingerprint without using a card
There will be situations, where the user doesn't use a card but needs to send out a certain value via wiegand. In this case, it will be essential to manually register a card ID to the user.
1. Enroll a card by setting the 'Registration Option' as 'Enter Manually'.
2. It is also possible to easily use the user ID as the card ID by clicking the 'Use User ID' button.
