8 mobile access control systems become the game changers

8 mobile access control systems become the game changers
Access control has traditionally used cards and fobs with barrier gates or secure doors to control access into different designated areas of a building. However, with the acceleration of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and smart watches, it comes as no surprise that access control providers have begun to take advantage of such technologies in order to develop and improve the service they provide. Mobile access control offers greater flexibility and security for organizations looking to use a more advanced access control system.

  • Agree. The real game changer mobile AND cloud, not just mobile as a simple card replacement. Cloud-based access control makes mobile the ultimate access control management client with much better authentication than any card can ever be. Cloud/mobile eliminates the need for any kind of cards or card replacements or readers or this new breed of card replacement readers. The demise of cards will be followed by the demise of readers, only a bit later.

  • These are all good examples of new tech coming into our access world but still, many solutions are proprietary to one manufacturer, so the use and costs are not optimised for end users and users don't have choice to change.

    You need to mention other technologies if you want to see what the future of future of access control looks like. Bluetooth and NFC of course, but also mobile devices as platforms for face recognition in access control: and no, it does not present the challenges faced by open space face detection systems. We also see the adoption of cloud hosted database services enabling mobile devices to become an access control reader - look at Doordeck and Doorflow as examples. At Axis, we are also using cameras as access control devices, and finding that our designing partners are coming up with innovative solutions on almost a weekly basis.

    Smart devices are also offering changes to access control designs as well; Smart Tile uses passive door tiles with a mobile device functioning as the reader. The device 'reads' the NFC tag to geo-locate the door so that users can, by presenting their device to the tile, gain access if rights allow. As a back up to that, the device can scan a QR code on the tile for immediate access - Smart Tile is less costly to purchase, removes the need for a reader and makes installation a doddle - www.smarttile.co.uk

    These are but a few examples of how access control WILL change over the coming years; the challenge for market suppliers is to choose how they will respond to end user expectations for open protocol designs
