Your Mobile Phone can now be your Access Card
What is a Mobile Phone Credential?
Essentially a credential is an access card recorded onto your mobile phone
Now you can use your mobile phone as a security access card. It can be a virtual key, unlocking & locking doors on an access control system as needed.
NFC (Near Field Communication) is the short-range high-frequency wireless communication technology that enables the exchange of information between electronic devices. This ensures a secure network that cannot be hacked into. Refer earlier blog: Can your Access Control Cards be Cloned
Everyone keeps their mobile phones close by and they are not something that is shared around.
By using mobile phone security credentials you know that the authorized user has that access card.

If you are renting out apartments or office space this is an ideal solution If two people lease the apartment and they have credentials on their individual phones for access, you can pretty much guarantee that they are the people using the access.
Another bonus is that the access control credential / security tag has a finite life. Most people upgrade their phones every two to three years. This ensures that the old access is cancelled when new access is requested onto their new handset.
Your security access data base is up to date and accurate. No more worries about all the old access cards out there.
