Wireless Protocol Security Statement

Meridia Wireless Protocol Security Statement

We use a secure, proprietary protocol to communicate between the receiver (antenna) and the keypads. There are over a half-dozen security features our system actively employs to protect the integrity of the communication between the keypads and the receiver/computer.

The latest EZ-VOTE 5S keypads and EXT-S base receivers are also using a new “Dynamic Session ID” protection which changes the communication between the keypads and the base every 30 milliseconds.

Learn more by downloading the Wireless Protocol Security Statement below.
