Mobile Credentials Use Existing Door Readers - Brivo - Facility Management Product Release
| Company information
Brivo Mobile Pass, a digital credential solution, lets users unlock doors with their smartphones. As an enhancement to the existing Brivo OnAir access control system, customers can immediately distribute mobile credentials to their entire user population without any on-premise equipment changes. Available on both iOS and Android, Brivo's Mobile Pass Application immediately delivers access control via smartphones without having to install new door readers. Brivo Mobile Pass serves as a mobile complement to physical keycards and readers, and is fully interoperable with existing door reader technologies.
Brivo's previously released Brivo OnAir Mobile Application already provides administrators full accessibility to manage their system from a smartphone; now with Brivo Mobile Pass, all users can open doors using their smartphone.
How Brivo Mobile Pass Works Brivo Mobile Pass is a cloud-based mobile credential system that is part of the Brivo OnAir platform. From a workflow perspective, the Brivo OnAir administrator selects a user and creates a Brivo Mobile Pass invitation that is delivered via email. The user then clicks the "Add" button in the email to activate Brivo Mobile Pass on their phone. The user can now open doors as they would have with a keycard, however, Brivo's cloud authentication is far more secure because of the cloud-based authentication. As with keycards, Brivo Mobile Passes can be revoked at any time by the administrator.
For users, the Brivo Mobile Pass Application is much more convenient and secure than traditional keycards. It travels with them wherever they carry their phone, and it's protected by passcode and biometric capabilities built into the smartphone. When the user wants to open the door he/she simply opens the Brivo Mobile Pass application. It communicates with the cloud using the smartphone's capabilities and requests that the door be opened. No keycard is needed. Brivo Mobile Pass also operates across multiple, unaffiliated Brivo-equipped facilities such as offices, gyms and parking garages. Users can add Brivo Mobile Passes from an unlimited number of Brivo OnAir accounts via email.
