Mobile credentials - A next-generation access control experience increases security, convenience and building health
Smart Access Technology
In a world where smartphones provide greater convenience, mobile credentials make it possible to use your phone as a way to authenticate and gain access.
Mobile credentials add several layers of security above the normal plastic card.
First, smartphones provide additional security with pin codes, fingerprint or face ID that unlock the phone in order for the mobile credential to be used. Second, when the mobile credential is transmitted to the reader, the basic card encryption (Prox, DESFire, iCLASS, etc) is enhanced by another encryption layer used to secure the transmission of the card payload to the reader.
Smart credentials don't require an access card to be kept in a wallet or attached to a lanyard. Many of us routinely carry our smartphones throughout the day. Our solutions give system administrators the option to enable employees to enter pre-authorised doors with their smartphones in a pocket or bag.
Mobile credentialing costs are predictable and can eliminate the capital costs of plastic badges, printers, ink, storage and handling. Unlike plastic cards, mobile credentials may be reused, transferred and remotely deactivated.
Limit Device Contact
If you're looking for an easy-to-use system that has the ability to limit people's contact with access control and other security systems, mobile credentials limit contact to a smartphone typically used by its owner.
