Johnson Controls introduces the latest version of its Kantech EntraPass Security Software with integration with Kantech’s ioSmart Card Reader, as part of an end-to-end encrypted access control solution. EntraPass v7.30 also includes integration with HID Mobile Access for quick and easy access to doors using a mobile phone for the end users while maintain the credentials management through EntraPass.
Along with the newly added support for the ioSmart Readers, EntraPass 7.30 will continue to support the ioProx Card Readers and Credentials. With the multi-technology options available on ioSmart Readers, the migration from Proximity cards to smart cards is easy with Kantech.
Mobile access management
EntraPass v7.30 now supports HID Mobile Access credentialing. The integration makes it possible for users to gain access to a facility using a credential on their phone from a BLE-enabled HID reader. The user receives an invitation from security personnel on their mobile phone and can quickly download the credential. All credentialing is managed through the EntraPass Corporate and EntraPass Global Edition software.
“The ongoing evolution of EntraPass, with the addition of our ioSmart technology, reflects our continued focus on and acknowledgement of the changing needs of our customers,” said Rajeev Dubey, Director of Distribution Product Management, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “EntraPass 7.30 is the link that puts modern, easy-to-understand and scalable access control technology into the hands of security administrators.”
This latest edition of EntraPass software offers several enhancements to the EntraPass Go, EntraPass Go Pass and EntraPass Install apps. Added to EntraPass Go, which allows remote use of the software, is a link to “auto populated fields” that assists operators by bypassing the need to filling out configuration details to start using the app. EntraPass Go Pass, the mobile credential feature, now works with Android as well as iOS devices (including Apple Watch) and supports widget use, so users can unlock doors from a widget rather than having to open an app.
EntraPass Go Install has been updated with a reader driver list and the ability to switch accounts without having to log in and out. There is also a new tutorial for EntraPass Go Install with additional user information.
EntraPass 7.30 is available on Special, Corporate, and Global Editions as well as hattrix.
