Instant Mobile Credentialing: The future of Access Control

As the need for safety and security is the most talked-about aspect in today’s world, security integrators are committed to providing advanced security solutions to the end-users. One of their objectives is to be agile and offer top-notch security services to the clients and help them stay one step ahead of the others.

With the ever-evolving technology, the recent trend growing is the use of smartphones as the credential for access control systems. Mobile credentialing is made possible with the help of cloud-based servers which are fast, secure, and convenient.

Instant Mobile Credentialing

How Mobile Credentialing works?

  • A unique ID or an email id is assigned to the user. User has to download an application in their mobile phones and sign in with their assigned ID’s
  • The app uses the Bluetooth and the GPS location of the mobile phone to detect access readers
  • With just a wave near the reader, the app makes the connection with the reader and instructs to authenticate the user
  • Access is granted by the system controller after authenticating the users’ access permission

Mobile Credentialing v/s Traditional Access Control

Easier and FasterAs compared to traditional access control systems, smartphone credentialing systems are faster. Users do not have to stand in long queues to wait for their turns, it takes seconds to authenticate and unlock with the smartphone

Convenient With access card systems users have to carry keycards with them at all times. Mobile phones have become a necessity and users keep their mobile phones with them at all times. Hence, smartphone-based access control systems allow the user to roam freely without worrying about the keys and the keycards

Offers more SecurityWhen you compare a traditional access control system with a mobile credentialing system, you will find that a lock-and-key-based system or a keycard-based system is prone to vulnerabilities. Keycards can be cloned or stolen, the same is the case with physical keys. Whereas, a mobile phone is less vulnerable. In case of theft, the user will need a pattern or a pin code and a biometric verification to unlock a smartphone. Forced unlocking will lock the phone permanently and the user might have to factory-reset to start it again. This will automatically sign you off from the access control application and your phone will no longer be able to unlock the door.

You can track your employee’s device inside the building at all times

Cost-EffectiveThere is no need to print physical identity badges for your employees with a mobile credentialing system in place. With a large workforce and frequent hirings, the cost of maintaining and issuing new keycards is considerably higher

Zero WiringsThe hassle of maintaining a wired system becomes overwhelming with the traditional systems. The mobile credentialing system uses Bluetooth technology to reduce wirings in your building and thereby reducing the cost of labor and installation

More GreenPlastic keycards are hazardous for the environment, issuing and discarding more and more plastic cards affects the environment. Mobile credentialing reduces the plastic wastes from keycards and also from the wirings
