Rapid changes in technology span both the consumer and the physical security markets. In the consumer market, technology innovation is nowhere more apparent than in the palms of our hands, where we all hold the latest smartphones and mobile devices. Simply put, the unprecedented power and capabilities of today’s smart phones have changed our lives. No wonder they are also having an impact on our business of physical security systems. Although a consumer product, smartphones increasingly play a role in security. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How are smartphones impacting technologies in the physical security market?
From serving as credentials for access control to providing on-the-go availability of video images, today’s smartphones are expanding the capabilities of our industry’s technologies. Increasingly, smartphones are not just a handy tool in our lives. They are also a vital part of the systems we create to make the world a safer place.
This white paper discusses what you need to know in preparation to deploy a mobile access solution. Using a mobile device to gain access to buildings is not only about solving a particular problem; it's also about doing things better.
Confidence and education in the use of contactless applications and technologies, such as Near Field Communications (NFC) and Bluetooth, are continuously growing. In the era of mobility and cloud computing, companies are increasingly concerned about the security and protection of their physical environment. Correctly implemented, mobile access has the potential to revolutionise the way we open doors.
HID have produced this guide to mobile access configuration to explore the underlying technologies which enable mobile access and discuss what you need to know to implement mobile access control.
