Ready to switch over?
So, with all these benefits, is your organization ready to switch over to mobile credentials for access control? Here is what access control in a mobile application looks like for your end-users:
- Open doors with their smartphone
- Take advantage of multi-factor security authentication: Use on-phone authentication for high-security areas.
- Use a credential that is less likely to be lost or forgotten
- Have one credential for access to multiple facilities
When selecting your access control system supporting mobile credentials, look for ease of administration, management and distribution.
Some older Bluetooth-enabled systems force the user to register themselves and their integrators for every application. Door access – register. Parking access – register again. Data access – register again, and so on. Newer solutions provide an easier way to distribute credentials with features that allow users to register only once and need no other portal accounts or activation features.
In addition, you don’t want hackers decoding your Bluetooth transmissions, replaying them and getting into your building, so demand from your security service provider that your system is immunized against such risks.
Using mobile devices as keys aligns perfectly with the mobile-first preferences of today’s workforce. It not only delivers a convenient user experience but also helps boost operational efficiency.
Someday, all personal identification may be stored on chips implanted in our bodies. Until then, smartphones as mobile credentials are steadily becoming the access-control technology of choice for physical security.
