ASSA ABLOY, the global provider of door opening solutions, announced the company is working to support mobile access capabilities for student IDs with Apple Wallet. When student ID cards are added to Wallet on iPhone with iOS 12 or Apple Watch with watch OS 5, students and faculty will have an easier and more convenient way to open doors, make payments on and around campus, and enable other student ID driven functionality on a university campus.
“We are proud to work with Apple to drive this innovation,” said Nico Delvaux, President and CEO of ASSA ABLOY. “ASSA ABLOY will leverage its expertise in mobile access to support Apple’s efforts to make it easier to access dorm rooms with contactless student IDs, which we feel will help open doors to their future.”
Opening doors using iPhones and Apple watches
This fall, with contactless student IDs, students and faculty will be able to use their iPhones and Apple Watches to open doors in buildings. ASSA ABLOY’s reader technology, combined with embedded HID technology in ASSA ABLOY locks, will be part of a broader technology solution that unlocks the possibilities for mobile student IDs on university campuses.
As the global market leader in mobile access technology, ASSA ABLOY has a proven track record of success delivering mobile access readers and credentials worldwide, providing customised solutions that meet evolving user requirements.
