PDK IO Access Control Software

PDK.IO Access Control Software

ProdataKey now allows for "custom fields" within the interface of its pdk.io software. Custom fields increase PDK's solutions' overall functionality by allowing administrators to include a wide range of pertinent data associated with each user. Address, location, floor, unit number or any other field can be added to the pdk.io user database, providing more ways to identify employees and tenants accurately and categorize them into meaningful segments.

Custom fields give administrators greater latitude in defining user groups and customizing their permissions based on shared characteristics. For example, by identifying users by "shift," night workers can be limited to specific building entrances that are well lit and guarded. Identifying tenants by "floor" can allow elevator and stairwell permissions to be set accordingly. Custom fields also expand the functionality of third-party integrations that rely on data that are not part of a typical access-control user database. Custom fields may be applied to any pdk system directly from pdk.io.

“Applications for access control are expanding, and systems deployed in these new environments often benefit from descriptive fields that have not traditionally been part of a conventional access control user profile. With custom fields, pdk system administrators now have unlimited flexibility to incorporate data that is relevant to their specific users and applications,” said Jeff Perri, ProdataKey's founder and chief marketing officer.
