Tracking & Reporting

Control access to a Brother device with card authentication via an external card reader.


The WAVE ID® Plus is a dual-frequency card reader that combines proximity and contactless technologies. Four ID card configurations enable growing organizations to seamlessly integrate different ID card technologies.

The WAVE ID® SP Plus (dual frequency) and WAVE ID® SP (single frequency) are slim card readers with a thin form factor that enable integration in recessed compartments as well as external mounting configurations.

These readers are designed for customers who want to leverage their existing card systems for applications beyond building access including secure printing and copying, and more.
