An Overview of HID Mobile Access



It’s a mobile world. From smartphones to wearable and tablets, mobile devices are ever present in today’s work environment, always on hand, serving a variety of purposes. Mobile has become the go-to technology of the new millennium, offering convenience and portability. Leveraging mobile technology to access doors, parking facilities and gates – not to mention networks and other enterprise applications and much more – is a logical step in the evolution of access control.

HID Global is leading innovation with its award-winning HID Mobile Access® solution that extends access control functionality to mobile devices. End-users securely and conveniently access the workplace using their smart device that is almost always on-hand. People don’t go anywhere without their mobile device of choice – unlike badges that get left behind or lost.

 HID Mobile Access makes the freedom to move access control to phones, tablets, watches and other wearables a matter of preference. The solution can be deployed as a pure mobile solution or integrated it into an existing card-based access control system.  Open doors and gates with a short-range tap or from a distance using Twist and Go activation. The solution also supports the widest variety of mobile devices in the industry today.

Meeting the demand for convenient mobile solutions

More Than Just Door Access

The same mobile device you use to open gates and doors, can allow you to log on to the network, open electronic locks and securely release documents from the printer. You can also use this same device for time and attendance, to get a snack from the vending machine

or access the electronic vehicle charging station. HID Mobile Access is connecting the environment like never before.

 IT security and facility management can now move toward consolidated access programs. The efficiency and potential cost savings gained through centralized access management is becoming more attractive to organizations as they are asked to do more with less.

Powered by breakthrough Seos® credential technology, HID Mobile Access delivers the highest level of security and privacy protection available for access control.
