M5 by ANVIZ is a small access control device that is designed to fit most door frames. A metal casing, with IP65 water-proof design, makes it suitable for indoor or outdoor applications. M5 supports 125kHz proximity cards and fingerprint identification. It has both Wiegand and TCP/IP protocol interfaces and can be combined with SC011 (Power supply controller) to be a standalone access control device, or integrated with professional distributed access controller from a third-party to enable large-scale networks.
