Access and control.
In the palm of your hand.
Mobile Credentials are virtual credentials that provide card-free access via a smartphone.
As an end user, mobile credentials provide the flexibility and added convenience of card-free access from a mobile device. No more issues with lost or forgotten cards and tags. Simply present your smartphone within range of the reader to gain entry. Customize the read range, and you don’t even need to take your phone out of your pocket.
As an integrator, mobile credentials eliminate the time spent handling physical access cards, and with everything managed online, there’s no shipping so customers can access them immediately. Multiple credentials can be stored on a single device – which is great for those managing multiple sites.
Mobile credentials provide a simple, more cost-effective approach to managing access credentials, and eliminates the time and effort involved with handling, printing, distributing and disposing of physical access cards. Ordering, issuing, and management of credentials is all done online, with the credential emailed directly to the end user’s mobile device.
Credentials are stored securely on the mobile device, with access authenticated using a secure cloud based server and 256-bit encryption. Given that most people carry their smartphone everywhere, just as they do their car-keys and wallet, mobile credentials are much less likely to be lost or misplaced. They are also usually protected with a passcode or biometric security.
Compared to traditional cards and tags, mobile credentials offer a more convenient end user experience by enabling a smartphone or other mobile device to securely unlock doors and enter buildings. With most (if not all) people carrying a smartphone with them every day, it eliminates the need for physical cards, meaning lost and forgotten cards become a thing of the past.
Control your site from your smartphone.
Use the Protege Mobile App to monitor and control your business while on the go, all from a touch of your smartphone. With the swipe of a finger you can connect to any of your sites, check the status, arm or disarm, control lights, locks, signage, heating – even cameras - from anywhere, at any time.
No more second guessing whether you set the alarm before you left the office – the app provides instant awareness of system status, and enables you to arm or disarm with a simple tap.
A couple more taps and you have the heating and lights turned on, transforming a cold, dark, unwelcoming office into a warm and inviting environment.
Peace of Mind
Subscribe to push notifications to receive alerts of system or sensor activity. As a business owner, you see that the system is disarmed at the start of the day, and rearmed when everyone goes home.
Protege Mobile SDK
The ICT Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) is a valuable tool for combining access control functionality with an existing app, using ICT mobile credentials. By providing access to our mobile APIs and services, we make it possible for developers to build integrations allowing third-party apps to access and transmit mobile credentials for use with ICT readers and access control systems.
