ProdataKey Releases Mobile App for Cloud Access Control Platform
ProdataKey’s new Touch app lets authorized users unlock entrances remotely via their smartphone, eliminating the need for carrying a physical credential.
The Touch app is available for free to all PDK customers and allows users to unlock entrances remotely with the push of a button on the mobile app. Only entryways matching the user’s permission level will be available to unlock. The Touch app is compatible with all pdk io systems and all doorways, regardless of the type of readers in place, according to the company.
To begin making use of this new functionality, system administrators must enable the feature within the software, which now appears as a clickable option within the management dashboard.
In addition, the administrator must indicate which individual users are authorized to use the app. This allows employers to limit use of the app to certain employees, if desired, such as those at a managerial level or above. Once these two steps occur, authorized users will automatically receive an email from PDK with a link to download and set up the app on their smartphone.
The app allows users to identify frequently used entryways as “favorites,” which then saves them to the home screen to enable faster remote unlocking of these entrances.
The app also allows users to remotely unlock doors to admit approved third parties, such as visitors or delivery people.
For employers who have installed PDK’s new touch io Bluetooth readers, the Touch app serves as home to their Bluetooth credentials, to grant them a hassle-free entry experience, according to the company.
Without unlocking or accessing their phones as they approach a doorway, these users need only to gently touch their hand to the touch io reader in order to signal a desire to enter and unlock the door.
“In addition to building the most robust and secure Cloud access control solution on the market, PDK has been equally committed to harnessing the full power of smartphones to deliver the convenience and accessibility that today’s customers demand,” says Evan Tree, ProdataKey’s CEO. “With our new Touch app, we’ve raised the bar in terms of what users can, and should, expect from their access control system.”
