Offline Locking: Updated Mobile App for Assa Abloy’s Smartair
Assa Abloy’s newly updated Openow app now includes Update on Card functionalities, offering additional and powerful features to security managers. Openow is the mobile solution for Smartair wireless locking systems. Users store their validated digital keys securely in the app; to open a Smartair lock, they hold their phone against its inbuilt RFID reader. An encrypted Bluetooth connection connects the phone and locking device to quickly validate or deny an unlock request.
Facility managers get through their access management workload much faster when they replace traditional card or tag credentials with the Openow app. Because Openow and the intuitive Smartair TS1000 software handle everything, delays in issuing or revoking keys for sensitive doors no longer jeopardize site security or company efficiency. There are no physical credentials to handle or track; no card encoders to buy; and no queues at reception for staff or visitors awaiting credentials being issued.
With the new features, the app adds online functionality to offline locking systems completing your security taskload will be even more efficient. Openow administrator functionality now includes Update on Card management for Smartair door devices. Powerful features usually only available in online mode are now enabled for Smartair offline locks — without any need to install dedicated wall updaters or communications hubs.
Every time a user opens a Smartair door with Openow, the event and entire door history are reported in the Smartair software — alerting security managers of door entrance attempts, battery status, and more.
