Smart mobile device access control systems in NYC


Mobile-enabled workforces are starting to use smartphones and mobile devices as digital identity credential control keys / keyless entry for gaining access to secured buildings, entry points, rooms, and areas.  In a Gartner report, “Predicts 2017: Identity and Access Management” around 20 percent of organizations expect to adopt the use of smartphones as an option to traditional physical access cards by 2020.  

Extending access control functionality to a smartphone allows end-users to securely and conveniently access the workplace using their smartphone mobile device as their credential key.  Mobile access control is the use of a Bluetooth, Bluetooth LE- or NFC-enabled mobile devices, (such as a smartphone, tablet or wearable) that can work with a number of card readers and physical access control system technologies for identifying and enabling controlled access to doors, gates, networks, services and more. Smart mobile access control solutions are allowing companies to meet the growing demands of a mobile-first world. In 2019 the number of mobile phone users is forecast to reach 4.68 billion.  New York organizations are adopting it as a simpler and cost-efficient way to manage it’s building identification credentials as it replaces a bunch of tedious tasks related to printing, handling, distributing and destroying physical identity ID badges, key fobs or swipe cards (with RFID, magnetic stripe or barcode). Using smartphones can also simplify the integration of biometric reader technologies. Mobile access control can be used as either compliment to and replacement for traditional physical cards and cards.

With changes in mobile technologies, organizations are starting to offer and install mobile phone access control. While some companies might be thinking about taking the leap to transition to mobile-only access control system, mobile access can be used as an extension or complement to current card based reader (smart-card and proximity-card technologies) access control systems.  Which enables the use of both cards or smartphone mobile devices for gaining access security.

Mobile access encryption and security

Secure encryption authenticates the identity of the smartphone and its user allowing mobile access control solutions to ensure a higher level of security and privacy protection.
