HID Global is working with Datawatch Systems Inc., an access control and security systems integrator, to create a demonstration suite at 555 12th Street N.W, in downtown Washington D.C, where prospective tenants can preview the property’s mobile access control capabilities that are integrated with other technology in the multi-tenant building, including using Bluetooth low-energy for physical access.
Visitors are provided with a Samsung Galaxy S4 or Apple iPhone 5C smart phone that can be used to enter and exit the suite and activate other systems inside the building.
Datawatch’s DirectAccess system is used to manage the mobile access control solution in its client’s demonstration suite. HID Global’s mobile-enabled iCLASS SE readers have been deployed for access to the suite, which can be entered using a Mobile ID from HID Global that has been provisioned to one of two demonstration smartphones, a Samsung Galaxy S4 or an Apple iPhone 5C, each utilizing Bluetooth Smart for mobile access.
Visitors can either tap their device to a reader at the door, or rotate it as they approach from a distance. The initial Mobile ID authentication at the door also activates the HVAC system and lights. The DirectAccess system analyzes load requirements with each subsequent entry and exit using HID’s Mobile IDs, and adjusts accordingly. Departure of the last person triggers the controls to turn off the lights.
Datawatch had additional reasons for selecting HID Mobile Access for its client’s demonstration suite, including the fact that it operates with the most commonly used iOS and Android devices, and is very flexible.
