- The client needs to make sure they coordinate with the locksmith/installer on all building licensing requirements and any and all code requirements.

How Mobile Reader Pro Works with Controllers
Proxy Mobile Readers work with any controller that has uses Wiegand/OSDP. Credentials are simply copied from the existing access control system and added to Proxy Mobile Access Manager. Enterprise customers with tens of thousands of credentials may prefer to leverage the Proxy Mobile Access Connector to sync credentials and access policies between Proxy and the existing access control system automatically. Proxy Mobile Access Connector sits on the customer’s network of choice (often the same network as the access control system). It will sync the users within your local Access Control System to the Proxy cloud to allow for user management in either system and enabling your Access Control System to remain the system of record for access.
For most businesses, the access control system will act in parallel to the Proxy Dashboard. A default org credential can be established for all users or the customer can create individual credentials for each user.
