Given that the device integrates with an external card reader, is the mounting height actually an ADA compliance issue? As long as the field of view supports ADA height in terms of imaging / biometrics, it seems that the mounting position of the device shouldn't be an issue for ADA.

Regardless if an extra reader is used at an ADA conforming height, the Alcatraz reader is not compliant when hung at the recommended height.

I apologize, but I still don't understand why. I don't believe there is an integrated card reader in the Alcatraz device, so I don't know why it would be held to the 48" standard.

The reader does not issue audible or visible prompts to guide a (poor eyesight) user into a position to be properly read. If an external reader is used, the door may be compliant if Alcatraz is bypassed, but alone is not compliant.

Thank you! I had thought the mounting height requirement was just about physical reach, not audible or visible prompts.

I'll tighten up the language to make that aspect clearer. Thanks for the feedback!
