SAN DIEGO - HID Global has created a platform for software and hardware development capabilities with the launching of HID Connect.
Officially announced during the ASIS expo, the new hardware and software partnership arm is aimed at expanding the use of HID’s technology beyond its manufactured products. HID Connect, under the auspices of Debra Spitler, executive vice president, will offer a platform for applications and products that use HID 13.56MHz iCLASS and 125kHz proximity technologies.
Applications under current development include time and attendance; PC secure logon; point-of-sale/cashless vending; biometrics; parking; arming/disarming of security alarm panels; electronic standalone, battery-powered door locks; and other access control and communication systems.
Based on the level of participation, Spitler says, partners may benefit from the HID Connect program through a number of cooperative promotions, such as exposure in HID tradeshow booths, solutions seminars, lead sharing, cooperative advertising, and other forms of marketing and development support.
