Mobile Access Solution: SAG Cooperation with Sony
Delivering Advanced IoT Solutions
Expanding its portfolio of mobile access solutions, SAG is teaming up with Sony Mobile, who are delivering advanced IoT solutions to many different industries. In addition to SAG’s Mobile Check-In via a temporary guest code or Bluetooth, the company now also offers solutions in cooperation with Sony Mobile for the use of mobile access authorization, designed for the programming of digital keys for doors and cabinets via smartphones.
With Safe-O-Tronic access mobile programming, access authorization can be received wirelessly via mobile devices and transferred to numerous data carriers. No power supply or programming equipment is required. This makes the logistics of locking systems that are distributed over several buildings very convenient, ideal for branch operations, care services or other businesses and institutions with multiple field offices.
The product can provide temporary access to buildings for service and maintenance personnel, controlled access to medical cabinets in healthcare facilities or special regulations for access to laboratories or other functional rooms. It can ensure security in the provisioning of digital keys at any time and location.
Pilot Projects in Swedish Care Facilities
In Sweden, where care facilities are mostly under municipal responsibility, several pilot projects for secure access to medicine cabinets have already been successfully implemented with this convenient mobile access solution. Administrators for the care facility grant access authorization wirelessly via Criotive Access to the staff responsible for dispensing medicines in the connected care facilities. Employees log in via their smartphone and transfer the authorization to cards. This means that the medicine cabinets equipped with SAG’s wireless LS furniture locking system can be opened on-site by authorized staff members in a controlled manner. It is just as easy to organize access to the medicinal depots of the municipality. This may be especially beneficial during vacation time when many temporary workers are employed.
Smooth Management of Access Rights
“The Criotive Access solution provides an encrypted channel between the service provider and connected devices, such as phones and wearables, and has a user-friendly dashboard for efficient provisioning management over the air“, explains Jessica Håkansson, Head of Criotive Access at Sony Mobile. „It’s quick and easy to set up and manage both locks and users. They don’t need to pick up or update their keys at a central office – it‘s all handled securely over the air.“
The combination of the two products offers a wide range of industry solutions for access – easily retrofitted into existing installations. The application is available for Android as well as iOS devices. „With our solution, we can provide temporary access authorization for cabinets, rooms or entire areas. The ability to program authorization on the move complements our product portfolio perfectly“ says Marcel van den Haak, Export Manager at SAG. There are a variety of applications available for mobile organization in the healthcare, hospitality, fitness, retail and administration sectors.
