Rapid cloud computing and access control developments are transforming and dominating the security and access control markets at break-neck speed. Just like an RFID keycard, your smartphones can be used to quickly gain access to doors, elevators, and turnstiles, all with a tap or a swipe. With such ease of use, it’s clear to see why mobile access control is a game-changer:
- Smartphones are always on hand and quick to access.
- Mobile access delivers stringent security when compared to the traditional keycard. Smartphones leverage the use of biometrics, such as FaceID and TouchID, in order to gain access to any of the applications. A report by Mordor Intelligence indicates biometrics is on top for market trends in access control.
- Mobile access controls are powerhouses. Mobile credential-based platforms can provide instantaneous access data, enabling security teams to integrate technology such as passive tailgating and people counters to know how many users are in the office—a critical feature during an emergency.
