When implementing mobile access control, there is more to consider than just mobile devices. Reader selection, transaction security, and mobile app integration are also part of access control systems. Deploying mobile access control requires a seamless, end-to-end system consisting of smart devices, Mobile IDs, readers, locks and services. Before choosing and deploying your access control solution, the following aspects should be considered:
HID® Mobile Access Portal features a user-friendly interface for administrators and simple enrollment for end-users through our intuitive App.
Quality mobile access control solutions handle secure identity through multilayered authentication, ensuring the identity is real and validating that the identity data is coming from a trusted source.
Mobile IDs should be created and managed by a centralized management platform. Transmission of sensitive identity data to both the access control system and the mobile device should ensure security and privacy in communication.
In contrast to form factors driven by low frequency legacy technologies, smart devices can increase overall security through multi-layered authentication.
Readers and locks must support the mobile access control solution you choose. Additionally, if stricter privacy and protection features are required, your choice of mobile access solution will need to support such cases.
Simply add a user’s name and email to initiate the process that will send an invitation email to the employee with instructions on how to install the HID App. When the App is installed and configured, the correct mobile identity will be provisioned to the mobile device, and the security administrator is notified when the process is complete. For larger organizations, it is possible to mass upload user data from a file. The mobile identity platform validates the data and, for each user, goes through the process of sending an invitation email, issuing an appropriate mobile identity, and notifying the security administrator when a user has installed the App and has been provisioned a key.
