SMARTair® Openow™ for mobile access control

Product Profile

With the SMARTair® Openow™ app, security managers enjoy Update-on-Card functionality and a touchless credential handling process. Openow brings online benefits to existing offline devices in a SMARTair access control system, so management tasks are completed more efficiently.

Powerful features usually only available in online mode are now enabled for SMARTair offline locks  — without any need to fit dedicated wall updaters or communications HUBs. This means no cabling at all; and faster, less invasive installation.

Now, every time a user opens a SMARTair door with Openow, the event and entire door history are reported in the SMARTair software, alerting security managers about low battery status, access denied, out of time zone and more.

Openow is the convenient mobile solution for SMARTair wireless access control systems. Users store validated digital keys securely in their own Openow app. To open a SMARTair lock, they simply tap their phone against its inbuilt BLE reader. An encrypted Bluetooth connection connects the phone and locking device to quickly approve or deny a unlock request. With Openow, if you have your phone, you are already carrying your keys.

Facility managers get through their access management workload faster when they replace traditional card and tag credentials with Openow. Because Openow and the intuitive SMARTair TS1000 software handle everything, virtual keys may be securely deployed over-the-air to anywhere in the world and security managers can easily and quickly update access plans. Delays in issuing or revoking keys for sensitive doors no longer jeopardize site security or business efficiency.

There are no physical credentials to handle or track; no card encoders to buy; and no queues at reception for staff or visitors awaiting credentials being issued. The entire credential handling process — for both building users and security managers — is touchless.
