Wall switch with keypad pivCLASS reader, designed to support PIN match at panel
pivclass rk40 reader

HID Global’s pivCLASS RK40 wall switch with keypad contactless reader is suitable for use in security areas meeting the FIPS-201 criteria for “Controlled” access and is intended to support the use of a personal identification number (PIN) entered via a keypad and sent directly to a panel or door controller (PIN matched at panel, not on card).
