Mobile Access Control set to greatly improve the tenancy experience


Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

Mobile access control systems could potentially overhaul the tenancy experience, enabling fast and easy access to a building’s premises and other advanced technologies (such as energy management systems, for example) by using solely one’s smartphone.

As part of an ongoing effort to demonstrate the possible applications of a mobile access control system, HID Global created a demonstration suite in downtown Washington D.C where prospective tenants can preview the property’s mobile access control capabilities that are integrated with other advanced technology in the multi-tenant building. Visitors are provided with a Samsung Galaxy S®4 or Apple® iPhone® 5C smartphone that can be used to enter and exit the suite and activate other systems inside the building.

Users can either tap phone to the reader at a door, or use HID Global’s patented “Twist and Go” gesture technology to rotate the device as they approach from a distance.

Debra Spitler, vice president, Strategic Alliances with HID Global, commented on the company’s initiative: “This capability is quickly becoming a competitive advantage for property owners and managers who want to offer the best possible tenant experience leveraging mobile phones and other smart devices.”
