infinias Mobile Credential Brings Access Control Capabilities to a User’s Smartphone
infinias, an industry-leading provider of IP-based access control hardware and software, has launched the company's new Mobile Credential. Mobile Credential extends the capabilities of an infinias access control solution to users' smartphones—delivering enhanced security and convenient authorized access to designated doors at a facility.
infinias Mobile Credential provides complete access control functionality, allowing a user to present their credential via the network. As with any credential, users can only request access to doors for which they have authorized access, and the credential is authenticated and the event documented by the infinias Intelli-M Access management software each time it is presented for use. If a mobile phone is lost, or an employee terminated, the credential can be immediately disabled to eliminate the possibility of unauthorized access.
"The use of infinias' Mobile Credential adds a layer of security and flexibility for any organization," said Wayne Jared, President of infinias. "Unlike cards and other access credentials, people tend to be very aware of the location of their mobile phone. If a phone goes missing, the owner is aware of it very quickly, while the loss of a proximity card could go unnoticed or unreported for days."
Both Android and iPhone platforms are supported by Mobile Credential; and the mobile app can be easily downloaded onto a user's phone. Mobile Credential integrates easily with infinias' Intelli-M Access 4.0 software for seamless network-based communication and access control management.
infinias' IP-based access control solutions and Mobile Credential are available through a variety of infinias distributors and manufacturer's representatives. Visit www.infinias.com to learn more.
