One of the latest innovations in access control is the use of a smartphone in place of a physical access card. Mobile credentials are then used to gain access to secured doors, gates, networks, services and more.
It makes sense—cards are more often forgotten, lost, or borrowed, while a phone is usually close to its owner at all times. In fact, in a survey by Campus Safety Magazine, most participants favored mobile access control over key cards, pin codes, fobs, or metal keys.
More and more businesses in Puerto Rico (from all industries) are upgrading their security systems by switching to mobile access control. Are you thinking about it? Let’s look at the main benefits…
Why upgrade to mobile access control?
- Cost-effective – Your employees already have their devices, so no need to invest in key cards or fobs.
- Convenient – Employees can access facilities just by waving their phones in front of a reader.
- Secure – Mobile credentials are delivered through a highly secure and reliable cloud platform. This allows security personnel to create, modify, or revoke credentials instantly. Employees are also less likely to lose or share their devices than with physical credentials.
- Touchless – Contactless systems help protect staff and visitors every day and during emergency situations.
- Scalable – It’s easy to assign more credentials as your company grows.
