LenelS2 Rolls Out Subscription-Based Indoor Location Service
LenelS2 says this new capability expands the ways credentialed users experience touchless access control, including unlocking doors in their path.
PITTSFORD, N.Y — LenelS2 introduces its Indoor Location subscription-based service for businesses and other organizations using LenelS2’s BlueDiamond mobile app version 2.1.8 for smartphones.
LenelS2 says this new mobile app service complements its touchless access solutions by providing users with: the ability to quickly pull up a map to determine current location within a building, search for points of interest, use turn-by-turn directions for efficient navigation and unlock doors directly from a building map.
The service is an advanced solution in Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program. LenelS2, a global leader in advanced security systems and services, is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a leading global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions.
“Our new BlueDiamond Indoor Location service raises the bar for mobile credential app capabilities. BlueDiamond mobile credential holders can confidently find their way within buildings, enabling easier, more efficient building navigation,” says Ernie Chan, general manager, BlueDiamond and Value-Added Services, LenelS2. “This new capability expands the ways credentialed users experience touchless access control, including unlocking doors in their path.”
For customers utilizing the LenelS2 OnGuard or NetBox access control security systems, the Indoor Location service provides app users with facility-wide navigation. From corporate campuses, to entertainment venues, hospitals, convention centers and more, users can quickly get directions by pulling up a map from their smartphone to show their current location and search for points of interest such as meeting rooms, exits and more.
In combination with BlueDiamond readers, users can also unlock doors using voice commands or other app features for an enhanced touchless access experience.
The Indoor Location service is hardware-agnostic, allowing it to work with various technologies including WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy and virtual beacons. Organizations can digitize facility maps and define dynamic points of interest, according to the company. The beacons deployed throughout the facility enable the app to triangulate the smartphone’s location for display on the map.
The Indoor Location service joins the recently announced Contact Notification service as part of BlueDiamond mobile app version 2.1.8 that also includes a variety of non-subscription-based updates to improve the access control and user experience.
