Gloocel Announces Direct to Cloud Access Control Platform

The newly announced Gloocel Direct to Cloud solution utilizes cloud technologies to enable visitors and employees to use their cell phones to gain building access.

BOSTON—Gloocel Direct to Cloud is a new mobile based architecture for access control and intercom.

With the continued momentum towards mobile access control, Gloocel Innovations has released Gloocel Direct to Cloud, a solution the company boasts, offers users an entirely new way to secure buildings.  With Gloocel, mobile devices send messages directly to the Cloud and low cost relay devices receive cloud messages to unlock doors, release elevators, and monitor alarms. There are no control panels, readers, cards or even intercom panels.

“By eliminating the control panel, reader, and intercom hardware components of systems end users are presented with a much more affordable and convenient security solution,” notes Stephen Pineau, CEO of Gloocel. “In addition, with Gloocel we are pleased to announce a marketing strategy called the SSP (Security Service Provider). With our Gloocel SSP model, much like the ISP model, we provide hardware for free to our integrators. Integrators charge for locks and installation and share any RMR streams.”

Gloocel Direct to Cloud Streamlines Access Control

The company explains that with Direct to Cloud there are no control panels, card readers, gate remotes, intercom panels or other traditional hardware. With Direct to Cloud, mobile phones send messages to the cloud. The Cloud authentication software then sends messages to Gloocel relay devices which are connected to locks to open the correct door, release elevators, and monitor input devices. Unlike traditional systems that have software firmware versions in panels and a separate PC user database that must match, Gloocel asserts that with Direct to Cloud systems the panel software and PC software are combined and future proof against the traditional issue of backwards compatibility.

Gloocel adds that any door can be an intercom door but without door panels. Visitors simply call tenants on their mobile device and tenants use the app to open the door. For access control, users press the correct door icon on their mobile device. For large numbers of doors NFC chips can be mounted at each location to bypass the need to use the door menu.
