RemoteLock Platform Now Supports ReadyPIN-Enabled Smart Locks
Because the PIN code itself is encrypted with access permissions, ReadyPIN-enabled smart locks do not need to connect online for validation.
DENVER — RemoteLock announces that its software now supports ReadyPIN technology to enable offline smart lock control in locations with limited or no internet connectivity.
“The ability to manage access to every door on a property is increasingly seen as imperative. However, there are still instances where access control is needed, but WiFi connectivity is either lacking or simply non-existent,” says Nolan Mondrow, CEO of RemoteLock. “RemoteLock’s ReadyPIN offline credential feature allows users to enjoy all the benefits of remotely managing access from a cloud-based platform without having every end-device directly connected over the internet.”
ReadyPIN-enabled smart locks rely on secure PIN codes generated by the RemoteLock platform. Users simply create the access schedule they need and RemoteLock’s software creates a PIN code specific to the lock according to the desired schedule, according to the announcement. When the PIN is entered into the lock, the lock will verify the code via its built-in algorithm to allow access based on the schedule embedded in the PIN.
Because the PIN code itself is encrypted with all the access permissions needed, ReadyPIN-enabled smart locks do not ever need to connect online to validate the access credential. This allows users to bring remote access control capabilities to any door, with or without a WiFi network connection.
“We have seen a lot of demand for this type of solution, especially in multifamily properties and short-term vacation rentals,” says Mondrow. “It can be challenging to implement property-wide Wi-Fi networks or to secure remote locations where there is simply no WiFi option. These customers still have a great need to secure their locations and now they can enjoy leading-edge universal access control, even if they don’t have an internet connection on site.”
ReadyPIN-enabled smart locks are available through RemoteLock. Additional smart locks from other leading manufacturers supporting ReadyPIN technology are forthcoming, according to the announcement.
RemoteLock’s universal access control platform is said to allow users worldwide to remotely control access for renters, guests, employees and contractors from one dashboard.
