LenelS2’s BlueDiamond Mobile Readers Add iCLASS® Card Support and Phone as a Badge Functionality
PITTSFORD, N.Y. -
LenelS2, a global leader in advanced access control systems and services, is making access control more convenient with its BlueDiamond™ mobile readers now supporting widely used iCLASS® card technologies. BlueDiamond has also been enhanced to include a Phone as a Badge (PhaaB) feature, enabling hands-free access to building entrances, offices, meeting rooms, or any door with an enabled card reader. LenelS2 is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
LenelS2, in its ongoing technology collaborations with 3millID and with LEGIC Identsystems, has enhanced the reach of BlueDiamond multi-factor readers with additional support for iCLASS card application data. The readers now support virtually all major card technologies, from standard 125kHz proximity card technologies to MIFARE®, DESFire® EV1 and EV2 and now iCLASS card technologies, as well as mobile credentials using iOS®, Apple Watch® and Android® devices. BlueDiamond readers provide a cost-effective bridge for a planned migration from plastic to mobile credentials.
BlueDiamond’s PhaaB feature uses customizable response ranges and the BlueDiamond mobile app to enable approved users to access offices and meeting rooms while leaving their phones in a pocket or bag. The mobile device can also be presented to a BlueDiamond card reader to open a single door.
“The BlueDiamond solution with Phone as a Badge makes access control an effortless experience for users – both employees and authorized visitors,” said Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2. “The simple issuance and management of mobile credentials is tied together by a cloud-based server integrated with LenelS2’s industry-leading OnGuard® security management system.”
BlueDiamond PhaaB will be on display April 10-12 at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC) West, booth #18019 in the Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas.
