Vanderbilt recently launched the latest updates to VCredential, their cloud-based credential management platform that offers users the ability to create and manage Bluetooth credentials independent of the access control platform. What is VCredential? VCredential represents Bluetooth access control technology that is easy to use, simple to navigate, and offers the added benefit of mobility for users. Originally launched in September 2020, VCredential was developed in response to the growing trend of virtualization, a shift in the market to touchless door access, and the ever-evolving landscape of added security threats. Now, 10 months on from that first release, VCredential has been developed further. The key feature of this new release is the simplification of the authorization process that allows customers to use a Bluetooth credential. What’s New? VCredential was proving such an intriguing option for customers that this latest release now means that the process of creating and managing Bluetooth credentials is even faster. The process has been reduced to a simple two-step program now. Admin sends out an email invitation to the user. This email contains instructions for the user on downloading the VI Mobile ID app alongside a 6-digit alphanumeric activation code. The end-user downloads the VI Mobile ID Bluetooth app enters the activation code. The credential is now ready for use. It is as simple as that. Why Use VCredential? All the original benefits of VCredential still remain. Smartphone credentials are time and cost-effective alternatives to managing physical credentials that enable mobile phones to be used just like a traditional access control card or tag. The addition of mobile credential functionality is critical in today’s threat landscape as more users demand touch-free flexibility and a streamlined approach to visitor management and access control. VCredential is a one-off license purchase as opposed to a subscription-based model that would include annual charges per virtual credential. With this latest version, now credentials on lost, stolen, or old phones can be deactivated and transferred over to a customer’s new device meaning there are truly no hidden or extra costs, allowing for big savings in the long-term. Greater Control Moreover, thanks to additional integration functions, the creation, and management of Bluetooth credentials can now be carried out directly by the administrator within ACTpro and SiPass integrated systems for easier management and greater control. Meanwhile, the integration with the award-winning ACTpro reduces the workload on the operator by automating the issuing of Bluetooth credentials to cardholders from within the ACTpro software. It also enables the customer to manage credential allocation through this single interface.

Symmetry Mobile is a web credential application designed to be used with AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Bluetooth readers. Symmetry Mobile is a convenient solution for organizations using mobile devices or in conjunction with physical credentials for users who are transitioning to a mobile system to gain access to secured doors. It works with AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control system, as well as other access control systems, providing a seamless, efficient and cost-effective solution for enterprise users deploying more than one system. The touchless solution supports multi-factor authentication when used with a PIN or biometric (fingerprint or facial recognition) on both Android and Apple iOS devices. Users can type their PIN or use a biometric on their phone, eliminating the need to touch the reader and in support of COVID-19 guidelines. The frictionless setup of a credential eliminates the need to physically interact with the security team. Organizations can centrally issue and manage mobile credentials, photos and devices to their entire user base from a remote location, eliminating the need to buy and carry a physical credential and come into the badge office. The virtual credential in Symmetry Mobile displays a person’s name and photo. An unlimited number of credentials can be stored within their digital wallet, allowing people who need to access multiple sites using different access control systems to use the same mobile device. In an effort to support businesses that required employees to be on-site and ensure the health and safety of the labor force, AMAG developed a customizable health screening questionnaire to help reduce the risk of potentially infected employees from entering a building. Upon successful completion of the questionnaire, an employee’s physical access card or mobile credential will be enabled for a specified period of time, for example, one day. If the form is not completed successfully, the access card will expire and the employee will be denied access to the building. The system will send email notifications to managers for visibility. The questionnaire’s functionality operates independently and can be used on virtually any existing Symmetry Access Control system installation — and without any local infrastructure changes. Symmetry Mobile data is highly secure, as all of the data is encrypted when sent to the reader or stored on the phone, ensuring the mobile solution is completely secure. Users can customize the signal strength and read range on a per device and/or per person basis, increasing security and accommodating those who may need a longer read range, such as a person in a wheelchair, to open a door. Door read and unlock time is less than 1.2 seconds. Symmetry Mobile is available as a hosted or on-premise solution. The app is available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic, and is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

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.
With resistance to attack and extreme weather, wire-free installation and battery-powered operation, the new SMARTair i-gate Electronic Padlock is built for use almost anywhere. This new device in the SMARTair wireless access control range enables facility managers to add real-time control to non-electrified gates, cupboards, cabinets, closets, crates and more — wherever they are and whatever the climate. Security and access needs do not stop at the perimeter door. Yet finding reliable locking devices which are easy to operate with an electronic access system can be difficult. Gates and outbuildings are hard to reach with cabling. Access devices may not have the resilience required for operation outdoors. The i-gate meets all these challenges. The SMARTair i-gate padlock is robust enough for almost any climate. It has a watertight cover (IP68 rating) and an internal cylinder with Durability EN 15684 Class 6 Certification. It is battery powered and works with all standard proximity credential technologies, including MIFARE®, DESFire and iCLASS®, as well as Bluetooth Low Energy. Upgrading an existing padlocked closure involves simply swapping the devices and integrating the i-gate Padlock into an existing or new SMARTair wireless access control system. No drilling or wiring is required. Exterior and interior openings previously unsuited to electronic access control can now be controlled and monitored from the SMARTair TS1000 or Web Manager. An i-gate is compatible with any SMARTair system management option, including mobile management via the Openowä app.Add to Compare
Another large survey confirms the growing importance of integration across building security functions. According to the Wireless Access Control Report 2021, “95% [of security professionals] cited system integration [of access control] with other building/security management functions to be ‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ important” for the coming five years. Extensive expertise in the security sector made Plexus’ procurement team aware of this growing need for connectivity across functions — including access control. Plexus managers sought a more flexible access system for their own head office in Swansea, Wales. Alongside integrated control, Plexus prioritized modern access control with lower maintenance costs than their current system, as well as the potential to be operated securely from the cloud. Any new installation should offer the option to further scale — in any direction — in the future. They require a broad choice of wireless and wired door devices and readers for multiple types of opening — and of course a straightforward upgrade path for both hardware and software. ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions’ Incedo™ Business platform is now running at Plexus. Installing wireless locks, readers and controllers from the broad ASSA ABLOY range was fast and simple, streamlining their switch to Incedo Business. “Hardware architecture is well manufactured, and this goes hand-in-hand with software that has fantastic ease of use,” says Marcus Elphick, Operations Director at Plexus Fire and Security. Coming soon: fully featured cloud management With keyless locking and Incedo Business management software, Plexus managers control exactly who goes where around their offices. They can set times when defined user groups may open specific doors. It keeps staff moving and safe without the hassle of physical keys. The “new software has been seamless, much simpler and [with a] common sense approach to structure,” says Marcus Elphick. Incedo Business software is intuitive to operate from any PC. The entire Incedo platform is fully flexible and modular, allowing Plexus to add more locks or change management software options whenever they need. They are already planning to extend control: remote sites, entrance gates and warehouse access control will be covered, too. “We have been so pleased with the system and its capabilities,” he adds. Plexus aim to quickly upgrade to new Incedo Business Cloud management, which offers them real-time 24/7 access from anywhere, and for a greater number of doors, as they look to expand coverage to more sites. “Incedo’s integrated access control platform already delivers connectivity and convenience,” says Stephanie Ordan, VP Digital and Access Solutions at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “Now it delivers in the cloud, too. Incedo keeps premises secure and filters access intelligently, to manage the ever-changing movement of people — from anywhere.” “Your business is not static, and there is no reason why your security should be.” “Incedo’s system management options scale from entry level up to cloud-based administration,” adds Kevin Hoare, Incedo Product Unit Director at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “You can manage multiple sites and third-party integrations, including security solutions like CCTV. Scale up and down, add or remove hardware and credentials on demand — or switch system management options — all within your single environment. Migration between local and cloud management is always seamless in any direction, ensuring total flexibility for your business.” Whatever the 2020s bring next, Incedo gives security the flexibility to adapt.

Schools were never designed and built with social distancing in mind. So, it’s perhaps not surprising that as children returned to schools, for the autumn term this year, the prospect of outdoor classes and assemblies was mooted in the media and by the Government. Many in the education sector are making the case that, should there be further COVID-19 outbreaks, in the coming months, it would be better to utilise outside space, rather than resort to closing schools. In the COVID-19 era, head teachers are considering taking learning and large gatherings, such as assemblies outdoors, when possible. Managing ‘class bubbles’, hygiene and ventilation While Dr. Yvonne Doyle, the Medical Director of Public Health England (PHE) has publicly reassured parents that schools are not the ‘drivers’ or ‘hubs’ of COVID-19-19 infection in communities, there is a lot of pressure on school leaders to manage ‘class bubbles’, extra cleaning and hygiene, ventilation, and COVID-19 testing, to protect families and staff. It’s a logical step to switch, in certain circumstances, to outdoor activities where fresh air is on tap, and social distancing is far easier to manage. Specially built outdoor classrooms Across the school and nursery sector, there’s ongoing investment in specially built outdoor classrooms Across the school and nursery sector, there’s ongoing investment in specially built outdoor classrooms, which had been growing in popularity, even before the pandemic. These facilities offer numerous benefits as an extension of existing learning spaces and provide children the opportunity for hands-on learning, beyond a stuffy classroom. However, if outdoor spaces are routinely called upon as part of COVID-19 contingency planning, how can schools ensure that their outdoor classrooms and wider areas are secure, robust, and fit for purpose? When specifying outdoor classrooms and learning spaces, it’s essential to take into account the well-being of the students and staff, who will use them, noise pollution and acoustics. Most importantly, education managers need to ensure the surrounding area is secured and adequately protected from threats, including terrorism. Perimeter security measures for schools How can schools and nurseries secure their perimeters, so that outdoor learning is totally safe for all? A starting point is to seek out architects and suppliers, who have a good understanding of security standards. Worryingly, Jacksons Fencing’s research recently found that only one-third of architects are seeing both LPS 1175 and the UK police initiative, Secured by Design (SBD) physical security standards, specified for schools. This highlights a lost opportunity for architects to propose solutions that are appropriate to the level of risk and needs of the school, without turning the site into an unwelcoming fortress. Helping schools identify specific security needs Head teachers would be wise to work with architects, who not only know the latest security standards inside and out, but are also are willing to play a more advisory role, helping the school identify exactly what is needed. Head teachers should prioritise solutions appropriate to their site’s specific risks It’s also vital that architects don’t simply replace existing fencing and gates, with the same security systems that have been in place for years. Instead, they will need to meet changing needs and risks. Our research finds that teachers often report issues, with the school perimeter and gates, from being climbed over (28%) and causing injury, to gates not locking properly (10%). Head teachers should prioritise solutions appropriate to their site’s specific risks, which sometimes require altering of existing measures. School fencing is an important aspect of any education site. As well as defining its boundary and making a visual distinction between public and private property, the fencing and gates that surround and secure a school, will typically meet a wide variety of other important criteria, including preventing unauthorised entry to the grounds, protecting pupils, staff, and visitors from accidents and injury, deterring theft and anti-social behaviour, and reducing the risk of malicious damage, and acts of terrorism. Welded mesh panels for perimeter fencing Popular options for schools include welded mesh panels for perimeter fencing or sports areas, and railing systems to act as demarcation, in order to control foot and car traffic. Within the outlying boundary, barriers, bollards and parking posts will keep pedestrians, and vehicles safe from each other, while timber fencing and gates can be designed to control the flow of people, around the grounds and reduce the areas, where students can be hidden from view. Automated gates and access control Perimeter fencing must be complemented with safe entrances and exits for vehicles and pedestrians. Every school has unique entry-control requirements, determined by factors, such as size, location and the local environment. These needs influence the decisions you make, when preparing technical specifications for school security gates. Do you require gates to be steel or timber, manual or automated, single or double leaf? Specialist suppliers will be in the best position to offer inputs on school gates, which typically need to offer solid security and durability, with a welcoming aesthetic. Specifying access control system When specifying a school access system, it’s important to consider the areas of the school When specifying a school access system, it’s important to consider the areas of the school, such as sports fields, car parks, and children’s play and learning areas, and whether it requires playground segregation. Selected gates should meet the design of the fencing, to create a secure perimeter with no weak points, with automated gates conforming to all current safety regulations. . Noise pollution can be a problem as well, including noise coming in or leaving the school in residential areas. If more teaching is to be carried out outside, it’s worth considering acoustic barriers to reduce noise in and around the school. Timber acoustic barriers for security and privacy Timber acoustic barriers offer security and privacy, and can reduce noise levels, by as much as 32 decibels (in laboratory conditions), so are ideal for city centre schools or those located close to busy highways. There are many ways to build an outdoor classroom. Timber products can help to create a welcoming environment, such as wooden shelters, pergolas, fencing, and decking. Always check that high quality timber, ideally guaranteed for 25 years against rot and insect attack, is being used to provide an attractive, cost-effective, safe and sustainable solution, for all weather conditions. DBS approved installers And of course, installers must be DBS approved, so that they can install outdoor classrooms, during school holidays, or within term time, with minimal disruption. The COVID-19 pandemic had a huge impact on schools and learning. While nobody wants to think of fresh outbreaks of the infection, or any other virus, installing an outdoor classroom made from high-quality, long-lasting materials is a great way to future-proof school learning and ensure safety, and preparedness. Putting extra thought and care into the security angle will provide schools with decades of protection against a host of unforeseen events.
Most consumers are enjoying the convenience brought by electronic locks. With the existence of electronic locks, people no longer need to be restricted by keys. There are a variety of unlocking methods and more convenient remote control unlocking options. Suppose, you are going on vacation, and with the presence of an electronic lock, you can easily enter your house with your babysitter, without a spare key. Of course, not only smart homes, but also some infrastructure and commercial buildings are enjoying the convenience, brought by electronic locks. Passive electronic lock access control system This article will introduce a smart electronic lock used in the infrastructure industry, named passive electronic lock access control system. In traditional manufacturing, mechanical locks are commonly used in all walks of life, to protect the safety of property and facilities. However, the mechanical lock has caused many practical problems in the long-term application. For example, the keys are duplicated randomly, the unlocking authority cannot be controlled, the user's operation records cannot be known, and the remote control is not possible. Imagine that if you are in a remote telecom base station, it happens that you have the wrong key in your hand and cannot open the front door. In such a situation, this lock, maybe the worst scenario. In some industries, with a wide scope and large working area, more attention must be paid to access control systems Therefore, in some industries, with a wide scope and large working area, more attention must be paid to access control systems. In some outdoor scenarios, such as base stations and electric power cabinets, the requirements for access control systems are quite strict. Due to the particularity of its environment, ordinary power-based access control systems will no longer be applicable. Therefore, the emergence of passive access control systems has solved these problems. Electronic locks offer intelligent management function Based on years of in-depth field research, Vanma has developed the Vanma passive electronic lock access control system, based on the current situation of the industry. This system is different from other electronic lock systems, as it integrates the advantages of both mechanical locks and electronic locks. It not only has the simplicity of mechanical locks, but also has the intelligent management function of electronic locks. The term ‘passive’ of passive electronic locks means that no power is needed. Passive electronic locks have the same appearance as ordinary mechanical locks, so they can be installed anywhere, just like common mechanical locks. They also have a variety of practical functions of electronic locks. Authorised remote access control The Vanma management software allows security managers to assign access rights to specific areas, for different technical personnel. In order to facilitate real-time access control, the electronic key can be used in conjunction with the mobile phone app, in order to send information about its access rights to the technicians, in real time. Vanma management software can provide access to all operations performed by technicians Vanma management software can provide access to all operations performed by technicians, including complete audit reports. Access attempts outside the specified time range or outside the specified area can be obtained through the report, so as to analyse any abnormal situations. Access control in extreme weather conditions In the access control system, the lock (lock cylinder) maintains an extremely high standard and its protection level is IP67, to ensure the greatest degree of protection. Infrared induction technology is used in the electronic key, even if the surface of the lock is wet, the electronic key can also transfer the access authority to the lock cylinder. Ensure stable exchange of information between the key and the lock cylinder. In other words, a poor connection cannot prevent the transmission of information between the key and the lock. At present, this kind of passive electronic lock is widely used in many fields, such as telecom, electric power, water utilities, public utilities, medical emergency and so on in Europe.
Household adoption of smart home systems currently sits at 12.1% and is set to grow to 21.4% by 2025, expanding the market from US$ 78.3 billion to US$ 135 billion, in the same period. Although closely linked to the growth of connectivity technologies, including 5G, tech-savvy consumers are also recognising the benefits of next-generation security systems, to protect and secure their domestic lives. Biometric technologies are already commonplace in our smartphones, PCs and payment cards, enhancing security without compromising convenience. Consequently, manufacturers and developers are taking note of biometric solutions, as a way of levelling-up their smart home solutions. Biometrics offer enhanced security As with any home, security starts at the front door and the first opportunity for biometrics to make a smart home genius lies within the smart lock. Why? Relying on inconvenient unsecure PINs and codes takes the ‘smart’ out of smart locks. As the number of connected systems in our homes increase, we cannot expect consumers to create, remember and use an ever-expanding list of unique passwords and PINs. Indeed, 60% of consumers feel they have too many to remember and the number can be as high as 85 for all personal and private accounts. Biometric solutions strengthen home access control Biometric solutions have a real opportunity to strengthen the security and convenience of home access control Doing this risks consumers becoming apathetic with security, as 41% of consumers admit to re-using the same password or introducing simple minor variations, increasing the risk of hacks and breaches from weak or stolen passwords. Furthermore, continually updating and refreshing passwords, and PINs is unappealing and inconvenient. Consequently, biometric solutions have a real opportunity to strengthen the security and convenience of home access control. Positives of on-device biometric storage Biometric authentication, such as fingerprint recognition uses personally identifiable information, which is stored securely on-device. By using on-device biometric storage, manufacturers are supporting the 38% of consumers, who are worried about privacy and biometrics, and potentially winning over the 17% of people, who don’t use smart home devices for this very reason. Compared to conventional security, such as passwords, PINs or even keys, which can be spoofed, stolen, forgotten or lost, biometrics is difficult to hack and near impossible to spoof. Consequently, homes secured with biometric smart locks are made safer in a significantly more seamless and convenient way for the user. Biometric smart locks Physical access in our domestic lives doesn’t end at the front door with smart locks. Biometrics has endless opportunities to ease our daily lives, replacing passwords and PINs in all devices. Biometric smart locks provide personalised access control to sensitive and hazardous areas, such as medicine cabinets, kitchen drawers, safes, kitchen appliances and bike locks. They offer effective security with a touch or glance. Multi-tenanted sites, such as apartment blocks and student halls, can also become smarter and more secure. With hundreds of people occupying the same building, maintaining high levels of security is the responsibility for every individual occupant. Biometric smart locks limit entry to authorised tenants and eliminate the impact of lost or stolen keys, and passcodes. Furthermore, there’s no need for costly lock replacements and when people leave the building permanently, their data is easily removed from the device. Authorised building access Like biometric smart locks in general, the benefits extend beyond the front door Like biometric smart locks in general, the benefits extend beyond the front door, but also throughout the entire building, such as washing rooms, mail rooms, bike rooms and community spaces, such as gyms. Different people might have different levels of access to these areas, depending on their contracts, creating an access control headache. But, by having biometric smart locks, security teams can ensure that only authorised people have access to the right combination of rooms and areas. Convenience of biometric access cards Additionally, if building owners have options. The biometric sensors can be integrated into the doors themselves, thereby allowing users to touch the sensor, to unlock the door and enter. Furthermore, the latest technology allows biometric access cards to be used. This embeds the sensor into a contactless keycard, allowing the user to place their thumb on the sensor and tap the card to unlock the door. This may be preferable in circumstances where contactless keycards are already in use and can be upgraded. Smarter and seamless security In tandem with the growth of the smart home ecosystem, biometrics has real potential to enhance our daily lives, by delivering smarter, seamless and more convenient security. Significant innovation has made biometrics access control faster, more accurate and secure. Furthermore, today’s sensors are durable and energy efficient. With the capacity for over 10 million touches and ultra-low power consumption, smart home system developers no longer have to worry about added power demands. As consumers continue to invest in their homes and explore new ways to secure and access them, biometrics offers a golden opportunity for market players, to differentiate and make smart homes even smarter.
