It’s designed as a self-contained, stand-alone unit. Rafael Schrijvers, product marketing manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products, said: “As a basic, stand-alone solution, the ioPass SA-550 is convenient and easy-to-use. The combined reader/controller design makes it an affordable choice considering both installation and equipment costs.”
