Axis Communications, the global provider of network video solutions, has integrated HID Global’s Mobile Access with its AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller and AXIS Entry Manager software at IFSEC International 2017, which takes place from June 20-22 at London ExCeL. The Axis and HID mobile access control solution meets business demands to support mobile-enabled workforces. The solution enables mobile devices such as smartphones to function as credentials, allowing people to gain access to secured buildings, rooms and areas.
“The integration of HID Mobile Access into AXIS solutions reflects our goal to embed trusted IDs into an increasing number of devices and use cases, providing a better, more convenient and secure user experience that helps people work more productively in connected environments,” said Harm Radstaak, HID VP & Managing Director Physical Access Control Solutions with HID Global. “It also underscores HID’s commitment to delivering highly interoperable solutions that seamlessly integrate into our partners products and platforms.”
The integrated, open, IP-based mobile access control solution combines the convenience expected in a mobile-first world with the levels of security demanded by businesses and their employees
Combining convenience and business-level security
The integrated, open, IP-based mobile access control solution combines the convenience expected in a mobile-first world with the levels of security demanded by businesses and their employees. Mobile devices and smartphones are ubiquitous today and their functionality continues to advance to include an ever more diverse set of applications, from contactless payments to health tracking. By integrating HID Global’s Mobile Access with its software and door controller, Axis has created a solution which combines the convenience expected in a mobile-first world with the levels of security demanded by businesses and their employees.
“Axis and HID are both well-known, global brands that are partnering together to develop open, IP-based secure access solutions. Mobile credentials are finally gaining greater acceptance and adoption thanks to an increasingly mobile-first perspective. This mobile access control offering demonstrates Axis’ innovative solutions to the market in partnering with a leader such as HID. It is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use solution,” says Stephanie Hensler, Axis Communications Director of Business Development, Access Control.
Features of the mobile access solution
The Axis and HID mobile access offering is the first IP-based, end-to-end solution. It encompasses everything necessary for small-, medium- or enterprise-sized organisations to deploy mobile access control. The solution includes:
- AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, which makes yes/no decisions about who may enter, in which areas and at what times
- AXIS Entry Manager access control software, which is integrated with HID Mobile Access Portal and used to set up the systems, add new users and manage mobile IDs
From HID Global:
- HID’s Bluetooth enabled readers
- HID Mobile Access Portal
- HID Mobile Access App, which is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play
Optimal security and privacy protection
The integration features AXIS Entry Manager software to manage all connected AXIS A1001 Network Door Controllers as well as the HID cloud-based portal to manage users and mobile IDs
The solution stores trusted identities on smartphones for opening doors and locks instead of managing traditional printed identity credentials. This improves convenience for end users and represents a more cost-effective and simpler way to manage credentials. It also provides the highest levels of security and privacy protection available in access control.
The integration features AXIS Entry Manager software to manage all connected AXIS A1001 Network Door Controllers as well as the HID cloud-based portal to manage users and mobile IDs. Other third-party software can also be used for integrating more advanced access management functionalities.
The solution is now available through Axis’ and HID’s distribution channels. Visit the Axis stand #E1000 at IFSEC International 2017 to see a demonstration. Both Axis and HID experts will be on hand to showcase the solution.
