Integration of Mobile Access and Network Based Door Controller
IP-Based and End-to-end: Axis Launch Mobile Access Control Solution with HID
At IFSEC in London Axis Communications will launch their first integrated open, IP-based mobile access control solution together with integration partner HID Global.
The integration of HID’s Mobile Access with the Axis 1001 door controller and Entry Manager software allows mobile-enabled workforce to gain access to secured buildings, rooms and building areas.
The Axis and HID mobile access control solution meets business demands to support mobile-enabled workforces. It enables mobile devices like smartphones to function as a credential. This allows people to gain access to secured buildings, rooms and areas using mobile devices. The HID and Axis mobile access offering is the first IP-based, end-to-end solution – and is also available for third-party software integration.
Hand in Hand
The solution encompasses everything necessary for small-, medium- or enterprise-sized organizations to deploy mobile access control. This includes:
- Axis 1001 door controller stores approved end user and makes yes/no decisions about who may enter
- Axis Entry Manager, access control software integrated with HID Mobile Access Portal, used to add new users and manage mobile IDs
From HID Global:
- HID iCLASS SE and/or multiCLASS SE readers
- HID Mobile Access Portal integrated into Axis Entry manager
- HID Mobile Access App, which is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play
The solution stores secure identities on smartphones for opening doors and locks instead of managing traditional printed identity credentials. This improves convenience for end users and represents a more cost-effective and simpler to way manage credentials. It also provides the highest levels of security and privacy protection available in access control. The integration features Axis Entry Manager control software to manage all connected Axis 1001 door controllers with the HID cloud-based portal to manage users and mobile IDs. As an open, IP-based solution, other third-party software can also be used.
The Integration Partnership
Axis and HID are both well known global brands that are now partnering together to develop open, IP-based solutions. “Mobile credentials are finally gaining greater acceptance in market thanks to the mobile first priorities. This demonstrates Axis innovative solutions to the market in partnering with such a leader as HID. We have partnered to implement and use an easy-to-deploy solution for everyone”, says Stephanie Hensler, Director of Business Development, Access Control at Axis Communications.
