Access Control - Credentials Question

Are any of you familiar with the Hirsch access line at all?

They have a card reader that is a HID reader (reads Indala and iClass as well as Legacy 125 KHz)

I called one of my distributors and the Sales Support guy said Hirsch might restrict readers that aren’t Hirsch, or the cards might not work on that as they might be Hirsch cards…. In my experience, I think he's mistaken. The controller will usually decide what format it accepts, but the card should read whether it’s an HID or Hirsch product. HID readers read a pretty broad range on the spectrum.

I’m doing this as a favor for an EC, maybe get him the 70 readers at a lower cost than what the Hirsch guy is quoting him.

Do you see any issue with using the actual HID reader instead of the HID manufactured Hirsch equivalent? I don’t.
