JCI’s Kantech EntraPass Now Features Support for ioSmart Readers, Cards
The latest version of Johnson Controls’ Kantech EntraPass Security Software comes with a number of updates, including HID Mobile Access integration.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls introduces the latest version of its Kantech EntraPass Security Software that now integrates with Kantech’s ioSmart card reader.
EntraPass v7.30 also includes integration with HID Mobile Access, allowing end users to use a mobile phone while maintaining credentials management through EntraPass.
Users can gain access to a facility using a credential on their phone from a BLE-enabled HID reader. The user receives an invitation from security personnel on their mobile phone and can then download the credential.
All credentialing is managed through the EntraPass Corporate and EntraPass Global Edition software.
Kantech EntraPass 7.30 will continue to support the ioProx card readers and credentials.
“The ongoing evolution of EntraPass, with the addition of our ioSmart technology, reflects our continued focus on and acknowledgement of the changing needs of our customers,” says Rajeev Dubey, director of distribution product management, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “EntraPass 7.30 is the link that puts modern, easy-to-understand and scalable access control technology into the hands of security administrators.”
This latest edition of EntraPass software also offers several enhancements to the EntraPass Go, EntraPass Go Pass and EntraPass Install apps.
Added to EntraPass Go is a link to “auto populated fields” that assists operators by bypassing the need to filling out configuration details to start using the app.
EntraPass Go Pass, the mobile credential feature, now works with Android as well as iOS devices (including Apple Watch) and supports widget use, allowing users to unlock doors from a widget rather than having to open an app.
EntraPass Go Install has been updated with a reader driver list and the ability to switch accounts without having to log in and out.
