A Little Black Box of Possibilities
Credentials on a smartphone have been used widely since a few years back with the introduction of barcodes for access in cinemas. At the onset of this trend, cinema assistants would scan the code on your phone before permission was given to enter the movie theater. After some time, cinemas started using QR code so moviegoers can do it themselves by scanning the QR code to access the flap barriers.
This practice somehow introduces smartphone access slowly but steadily to the masses.
Taking it a step further, TimeTec is now offering door access via smartphone App, TimeTec Security to the market. Just by using TimeTec Security App, a user can access doors and barriers via a smartphone. Not only that you can tap to unlock the door, the App also offers another 3 ways of unlocking method to suit your preference. The introduction of TimeTec Security App replaces the function of a credential and now, the keys to your room are your smartphone. But how would a smartphone App knows which door to open?
All of this smart access control is made possible by a little black box known as TimeTec BLE-2. This is a Bluetooth Low Energy controller that makes the connection between the App and the lock possible through BLE signal. The process is simple, install the BLE-2 and connect it with the smartphone as well as configure the door settings via the App. The admin of the locks will then be able to provide access to those authorized, and the App can even contain many locks at once. The deployment of BLE-2 in door access control is not only simple, it’s affordable and the control of it is portable. TimeTec BLE-2 controller is likewise designed to be compatible with access barriers for human traffic and vehicle traffic.
