Turnstile manufacturers increasingly recognise the value of integrating mobile devices into their lobby security strategy to create more convenient, connected and secure experiences for building occupants and visitors. HID Global, a global provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that it has teamed up with six of the world’s top turnstile manufacturers who have tested and certified HID’s Mobile Access as part of their commitment to a mobile future.

Major turnstile manufactures exhibiting at this year’s ISC West exhibition are Alvarado, Automatic Systems, Boon Edam, Gunnebo, Orion Entrance Control and Smarter Security, who have integrated the new Essex Electronics iROX-T with embedded iCLASS SE technology from HID. Each company will showcase mobile access in their booths to illustrate how mobile is upping the convenience factor at the turnstile.

Solving the challenge of turnstile security

Leveraging mobile and cloud technologies at every access point, from turnstiles and elevators to doors, is a crucial part of creating a truly connected security experience in today’s smart building,” said Michael Chaudoin, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing, Extended Access Technologies business unit with HID Global.

The Essex Electronics iROX-T reader with HID’s embedded iCLASS SE technology supports BLE and NFC for mobile access

HID Global and Essex Electronics are making this vision real by solving the challenge of increasing turnstile security with a solution that enables secure access using credentials provisioned to a user’s mobile phone. This will help people move more efficiently through the hustle and bustle of busy building lobbies.

Supports BLE and NFC for mobile access

Already certified with the six turnstile manufacturers, the Essex Electronics iROX-T reader with HID’s embedded iCLASS SE technology supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Near Field Communications (NFC) for mobile access and optional OSDP for secure communications. It is also interoperable with smart cards, HID’s 13.56MHz Seos credentials, iCLASS SE, iCLASS, and other high frequency formats.

Garrett Kaufman, President of Essex Electronics, added, “Building on our successful launch of the iRox-T, the latest integration of BLE, NFC and OSDP illustrates the reader’s ability to streamline upgrades in order to meet the demands of today’s mixed credential environment that is increasingly incorporating mobile IDs on smartphones.
