Verkada Access Control supports the popular Wiegand protocol for badge readers which encompasses most of the HID and similar readers deployed today. Verkada also supports OSDP through the Verkada AD31 badge reader. How does this all translate to hardware support and integration?

How it Works

Wiegand

Wiegand badge readers generally have six outputs:

  1. + (Positive)
  2. - (Negative)
  3. D0
  4. D1
  5. RLED
  6. GLED

Each of these outputs has a corresponding input on each AC41 door cartridge as shown in the highlighted section of this door cartridge diagram. Each input has its label directly to the left:

OSDP

OSDP badge readers have four outputs:

  1. + (Positive)
  2. - (Negative)
  3. A
  4. B

Like wiring wiegand, each of these outputs has a corresponding input on each AC41 door cartridge as shown in the highlighted section of this door cartridge diagram. Each input has its label to the left of the Wiegand labels:

Once wired, the badge reader is ready to go and you need only activate the door cassette in Command to have it running alongside your other readers.
