UniKeys Smart Access Control App Integrates into Samsung KNOX
UniKey announced that its Touch-to-Open technology and smart access control cloud will leverage and enhance the Samsung security platform, KNOX for Android. UniKey's first application for residential, the market-leading smart lock, Kwikset Kevo, is available on the Google Play store today and KNOX Apps later this month for Android 5.0 devices.
UniKey's Touch-to-Open technology affords consumers and employees highly secure access to smart locks through Samsung's KNOX platform. Perfect for bring-your-own-device (BYOD), company-provided devices and personal Samsung devices, UniKey's application is ideal for unlocking doors, entryways and gates without the need for a key or badge in residential, enterprise, commercial, government, institutional or multi-tenant residential environments.
When downloaded from the Google Play store or KNOX Apps, UniKey's access control cloud platform interfaces with Samsung mobile devices inside the secure KNOX container, thus providing the most secure applications for residential or commercial access control management possible.
"By integrating with Samsung KNOX, UniKey is enabling the most secure access solution for businesses and consumers," said Phil Dumas, UniKey founder and president. "In partnership with Samsung, UniKey is making it even more convenient for businesses to manage secure access to any door, gate or badge access point and giving consumers the most convenient and secure way to manage access to their home. Through our partnerships with global market leaders in their respective industries, and with diverse businesses around the world, UniKey has expanded its footprint well beyond residential and into commercial enterprise with further platform expansions in 2015 and beyond."
UniKey also recently announced integration with Nest Learning Thermostat through the Works with Nest program to enable personalization of thermostat preferences and provide even greater energy savings in smart homes and smart businesses.
