ProdataKey Rolls Out ‘Present-to-Open’ Touchless Option for Readers
With Present-to-Open, users hold their smartphone within proximity of the reader to initiate immediate authentication of their credentials.
DRAPER, Utah — ProdataKey introduces “Present-to-Open,” a new touchless way for Pdk io users to interact with their system’s Touch io Bluetooth readers.
With Present-to-Open, users hold their smartphone within proximity of the reader to initiate immediate authentication of their credentials, eliminating any delay in unlocking the door or need to touch the reader, according to the company.
The phone may remain locked as long as the Touch app and mobile credentials have been installed on the user’s device. Individual or group permissions define when and on which doors this feature will work for each employee or tenant, as set by the system administrator.
The Present-to-Open functionality can be added to any existing Touch io Bluetooth reader through a firmware update performed by a PDK-certified systems integrator. Update tools are available within the configuration section of the pdk io app.
“Our Touch io reader has been one of our most popular product introductions, and during a pandemic, offering touch-free options to engage with it has become a huge selling point. In introducing this new Present-to-Open feature, Pdk io is the only access control solution to offer three distinct touchless methods that can be used interchangeably by system users,” says Jeff Perri, ProdataKey’s president and COO.
In addition to Present-to-Open, Touch io Bluetooth readers respond to users who wave their hand in front of the device. Users may also remotely unlock doors by pushing a button within the Touch App — a touchless option that utilizes WiFi and does not require Bluetooth readers. The Touch io Bluetooth readers and Touch App may be used on internal and external doors.
