Openow from SMARTair wireless access control

Product Profile

Openow™, the new complete mobile solution for SMARTair® wireless access control, makes life easier and more secure for everyone. Users of a SMARTair® access control system can open doors with their mobile phone and the Openow™ app. Facility managers can send, revoke and update virtual keys from anywhere. For security staff, business owners and every user of a site — from nurses on a ward, to mobile workers in a co-working space, to students in an accommodation block — Openow™ takes mobile credentials to the next level.

With Openow™, facility managers and security administrators have more control and no longer need to administer physical credentials. And it’s fast and easy to upgrade an existing SMARTair® system to work with Openow™ or to install mobile-ready, wireless SMARTair® access control from scratch.

The new Openow™ app has been designed around convenience, security and user experience with virtual keys. Information transfer between administration software, smartphone app and the SMARTair® device is protected by end-to-end encryption.

“Right from set-up — involving simple, secure email subscription — users find the Openow™ app a joy to operate. Tap a SMARTair® lock with your phone carrying a valid virtual key, and the door unlocks. The device you carry everywhere — the smartphone — now replaces a separate RFID card with MIFARE®, DESFire, iCLASS® and other proximity technologies.” explains Félix Morán SMARTair® Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY.

Openow™ also adds further layers of security to every premises 

Facility managers find life a lot simpler when managing access rights with the Openow™ mobile solution. Change the validation time in the administration software to automatically update a user’s virtual key (when the phone has a signal). Cancel a virtual key and it vanishes immediately from a user’s app. Facility managers can check and amend the validity of each virtual key whenever they want, and wherever they are.

The complete mobile solution includes the SMARTair® device range, with wireless escutcheons and cylinders plus wall readers; the intuitive SMARTair® TS1000 software; user credentials, e.g. cards and the new Openow™ app.

Business owners and directors project the right image for their premises when they offer mobile credentials via Openow™. Phones replace plastic key-cards, so there’s no need for a card activation terminal on reception or elsewhere.

Users also save time, because there’s no longer any need to collect or validate an access card: your key is already on your smartphone. Openow™ makes it easy to organise virtual keys inside the app, check how long they are valid, and protect them further with an individual PIN. If you have virtual keys from multiple sites or premises, Openow™ easily handles those, too. No more key-card, or wondering where you left it; no more appointments to pick one up or have it revalidated.

With Openow™, if you have your phone, you are already carrying your keys.

The SMARTair® Openow™ app is free to download now from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store. For more information, see https://campaigns.assaabloyopeningsolutions.eu/openow?utm_campaign=smartair-openow&utm_source=PR

CLIQ® access control solution from ASSA ABLOY helps secure museums, shopping and indoor leisure sites

Places of leisure, where one spends one’s downtime, are public by design. Unlike a bank vault or power plant, they actively invite visitors. One can’t just lock them down and hope no one turns up. Equally, to ensure user and property safety, access must not be a free for all. Managing risk - separating authorised from unauthorised people and locations - is part of every site manager’s daily routine. Intelligent locking makes this workload a whole lot easier.
