Tyco Security Products Introduces Mobile Credentials with New App
The new EntraPass Go Pass mobile application allows card holders to use their mobile phones as an access control credential.
Using the EntraPass Go Pass mobile app, cardholders can gain access to doors by pressing the appropriate icon of the door in the app.
The app works with Wi-Fi or a cellular connection to communicate directly with the access control system’s server, which allows organizations to leverage their existing card reader infrastructure and save on the cost of new card readers required with other mobile credentialing technologies, according to the company.
“This newest release of EntraPass is focused on providing the ultimate in usability, giving our customers the efficiency and flexibility required in their day-to-day operations,” says Rajeev Dubey, senior product manager, Tyco Security Products. “With EntraPass 7.10, both end users and installers benefit from greater functionality in mobile credentialing and one-touch configuration that enables significant costs savings on hardware and installation time.”
The EntraPass Go Install mobile application allows installers with Android devices to now configure KT-1 and KT-400 door controllers with one touch on a mobile device.
Installation is streamlined with use of a QR code that can be scanned to auto-fill the door controller’s address and serial number.
The app provides a wizard driven commissioning process that helps ensure that no device has been left un-commissioned and allows installers to store pictures and notes for subsequent visits.
The software allows for easy migration of legacy Kantech controllers to newer Kantech controllers without having to reprogram access levels, triggers, graphics, reports, or door exceptions.
