Learn how to install Wiegand readers with keypads to Verkada Access Controllers

Updated over a week ago

All Verkada access controllers are rated to power readers at 12V up to 250mA via the + (VIN) and – (GND) connection. Verkada readers use the 4-port input (labeled as RS-485) while standard Wiegand readers use the 4-port inputs (labeled wiegand) and the shared power from the RS-485 connection. Read the steps to connect the reader to an access controller.

Note: Verkada Access Controllers accept 4-bit bursts for keypad transmission.

Recommendation. Please set your reader transmission format according to the settings according to the manufacturer's manual.
