Are Mobile Credentials a Good Access Control Tool?

Keyless access is a popular access control solution for businesses looking to eliminate the common risks associated with traditional keys and better manage employees. Each employee gets their own access card, fob or code to enter. This means no copying of keys that can fall into the wrong hands. It also means managers and administrators know precisely when employees come and go.

However, those popular keyless solutions are facing a serious challenge from one of our most ubiquitous technologies: smartphones. Each year downloads of mobile credentials are expected to jump 100 percent between 2017 and 2022, with twenty percent of all readers expected to be mobile compatible by 2022. Do you know if these mobile credentials are the right fit for your Houston, TX business?
