Brivo Reveals Cross-Platform Smart Credential
Brivo Unified Credential allows a single keycard or fob to be issued that operates with Brivo Smart Readers and select Schlage locks and battery-powered Aperio locks from ASSA ABLOY.
BETHESDA, Md. — Brivo, a provider of Cloud-based access control and smart building technologies for enterprise, announces the Brivo Unified Credential.
The solution is a new cross-platform smart credential that is compatible with select wireless locks and Brivo Smart Readers to improve security while leveraging existing door locks and devices, according to the company.
Brivo Unified Credential allows property owners and managers to issue a single keycard or fob that operates with Brivo Smart Readers and select Schlage locks and battery-powered Aperio locks from ASSA ABLOY.
“With Brivo Unified Credential, we are simplifying and enhancing security, while also putting an end to insecure proximity cards,” says Brivo CEO and founder, Steve Van Till, also an SSI Industry Hall of Fame member. “Property managers and owners who demand the latest in access control can use Brivo Unified Credential when they also need the flexibility and convenience to leverage existing credentialed door locks and devices, without making any compromises when it comes to security.”
The company says properties today are typically equipped with a mix of installed locksets and proximity cards, and that the main issue with standard smart credentials is that every manufacturer has its own approach, meaning customers are forced to either replace all of their existing hardware with compatible devices, which can be expensive, or use proximity cards that aren’t encrypted and easy to duplicate.
With Brivo Unified Credential, property managers can increase security with smartcards or fobs that work across select ASSA ABLOY wireless Aperio devices and Schlage locks, and Brivo Readers — all in one credential.
“More than ever, customers are looking for flexibility and freedom of choice in their access control solutions,” adds Devin Love, director of commercial software and electronics at Allegion, manufacturer of the Schlage lock. “We are excited to put services like the power of Schlage Custom Encryption Key to work, delivering open and interoperable systems while keeping people and places safe and secure.”
