Hybrid access control Many organisations may adopt a hybrid approach, keeping both the card and the smart phone using the Symmetry Access Control software's multiple credentials per cardholder capability. The Bluetooth reader capability could be added to lower security doors or just the minimum number of doors required that allow access to the workplace. Another advantage of using a mobile app is no physical hand-off of a credential is required. Users just download the app and it is instantly ready for use. This saves time and money and provides a convenient method to implement security.
