LAS VEGAS — Cypress Integration Solutions of Lapeer, Michigan, unveiled a new time and money-saving OSDP device during the recent ISC West security show in Las Vegas.
While security professionals are increasingly understanding the value of using SIA’s OSDP protocol, it can be challenging to source some OSDP components such as door hardware, said Jacob LeRoy, Cypress customer support specialist.
The Cypress OSDP Universal Door Interface (OSM-UDI) is used with an OSDP reader and an OSDP panel to control and monitor door hardware through OSDP messages. Using the OSM-UDI means the installer does not need to run cable from each door hardware device back to the access control panel.
“The OSM-UDI accommodates non-OSDP door hardware and allows it to be monitored and controlled on the OSDP network,” said LeRoy.
The OSM-UDI controls and monitors:
• Door position sensor
• Request to Exit switch (REX)
• Door/gate strike
• Tamper switch
• Other auxiliary function
Along with the OSDP Universal Door Interface, Cypress Integration Solutions introduced a host of other OSDP solutions, including low-frequency OSDP readers and retrofit kits, an intelligent OSDP data router, and an embedded OSDP module for manufacturers, a Wireless Handheld Reader with an OSDP-encrypted wireless connection, and other OSDP solutions.

Developed under the leadership of SIA's OSDP Working Group, OSDP is an IEC international communications standard that improves interoperability among access control and security products. Along with interoperability, OSDP is preferred for its encryption, authentication, supervision, 2-way communication and
functionality. OSDP has begun replacing Wiegand and proprietary protocols in access control installations. SIA recommends broad adoption of OSDP, especially for high-security settings. Learn more about OSDP at https://www.securityindustry.org/industry-standards/open-supervised-device-protocol.
