Open to new possibilities
After access cards based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) have been the proven standard for physical access control for decades, a strong trend towards mobile credentials is emerging today. In access control, cards and smartphones can be excellently combined as identification media. Modern solutions for physical access control should therefore work with both RFID and mobile technologies to offer maximum flexibility.

Instead of carrying a physical ID card, many people now prefer to have mobile credentials on their smartphones, which are always at hand anyway.
A distinction is made between two transmission standards for mobile access control: For the BLE (Bluetooth® Low Energy) standard, users normally need an app on their smartphone to enable access—for example, a hotel app replaces the room key. BLE can be used wherever a higher reader range is required, for example when opening parking lot barriers.
