Mobile credentials enhance security as well as building and personal health by limiting contact with shared devices. By having a keyless entry system for businesses, employees are able to be easily identified through their mobile devices and don't have to worry about keeping track of their keys or key badges.
Smart Access Technology
Mobile credentials make it possible to use your phone as a way to authenticate and gain access through a smartphone door access control system.
A mobile credential access control system adds 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.
Mobile 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 smartphone door access control system gives system administrators the option to enable employees to enter pre-authorized doors.
Mobile credentialing costs are predictable and can eliminate the capital costs of plastic badges, printers, ink, storage and handling. Unlike most plastic cards, mobile credentials may be reused, transferred and remotely deactivated.

We also offer features that require zero interaction by the user, our Pathways feature allows users to preload intent to unlock a door(s). This Geofenced technology allows the app to automatically launch upon arrival to the office/building and have their app start looking for the first door preloaded in their pathway. User keeps their phone in their pocket or bag and they approach the door. Once in range and the user stops to open door, the credential is automagically sent without any user interaction.
Using mobile credentials can offer several benefits, including increased security, convenience, and flexibility. They can also be more cost effective than traditional physical credentials, as they can eliminate the need for printing and distributing physical cards or key fobs. Smartphones come with additional security features, since they are generally already locked by the user. As a result, a lost phone poses less of a security risk than a lost badge.
