International software company, SMI Global, have this month launched a new Android device to their Mobile Access Control system.
This is the latest development in their successful and continued mission to solve the common security problem of “How can you use a Wall Reader – when there is no wall?”
SMI’s new Android device will provide a technical innovation to the access control industry that is currently dominated by other Windows-based rugged hand held devices.
This new modern, discreet mobile device will enable extended access control to be adopted by other sectors looking to enhance their security and safety offering in more urban environments.
Ideal for harsh environments
The mobile solutions currently provided by SMI are mostly used in the harsh environments of Oil and Gas installations and Construction.
However, there has been an increasing demand from other sectors to implement these security measures in more urban environments, which has led to the development of a solution based on these devices.
Like current systems the Android device will enable the user to not only verify access, but to see cardholder details, and will integrate with leading access control systems.
With a small, light form factor, a powerful processor and excellent battery life, this device will be ideally suited for less harsh environments.
Fitted with a stand-alone usage of more than 10 hours, this high performance PDA is designed to look like a smartphone, yet offers power, performance and strength for demanding environments.
Meeting a diverse range of business needs, the Android Device has brought future tech in the security industry to provide top-quality software applications that can meet the demands and challenges of today’s world.
