We offer robust, unique access control capabilities which give you a wide range of choices when it comes to supporting a variety of credential types, such as mobile, keycard, fob, and pincode and access entry methods, including door, garage, elevator, and turnstile. Below are some of the benefits provided by Openpath:
Frictionless access using your mobile phone
As the market continues to demand the modernization of buildings and IoT becomes more crucial to provide the amenities your tenants are expecting, mobile credentials are rapidly replacing keycards and fobs for convenience and security reasons. Investing in a system that supports mobile credentials and is supported by cloud based software is an increasingly important factor when considering which physical access control system to purchase. Openpath patented a technology ground-breaking and unique to the industry called Triple Unlock. This method ensures the mobile phone works as a credential every time by leveraging three signals to quickly and reliably unlock a door (Bluetooth, WiFi and Cellular). Furthermore, with Openpath’s industry leading mobile technology you can keep the phone in your pocket or purse as you approach the door and just touch wave your hand infront of the reader to unlock. This is the best example of frictionless access and Openpath is the market innovator in this technology.
Keycards and fobs support
Every Openpath enabled door and entry supports the use of keycards and fobs as a credential method for unlocking doors, in addition to mobile. This means all your existing cards and fobs will work on your new Openpath system if you choose to keep them, but you have the added option of having Openpath issue new, encrypted cards and fobs if you don’t already have any. The Openpath encrypted cards and fobs give you an even more secure choice for credentials, as they cannot be easily copied or duplicated.
No software to install, no servers to manage
Unfortunately, many access control installers are still selling and recommending old systems that require you, the owner, to buy large amounts of expensive software a bunch of servers to run that software before in order to use the system. That translates to high upfront costs and long-term recurring costs in order to maintain and upgrade all that software and the required servers. It often also means you can’t easily access the software because it is typically located under a guard desk, or locked up in an IT closet. Conversely, Openpath’s software is cloud based which allows you to manage your access control solution from anywhere, at anytime, on any browser. You have accessibility to real-time analytics and reporting from anywhere as well. The software is user friendly and intuitive to navigate so there is no training required to use it. Additionally, your HR and IT software seamlessly integrates to synchronize users, making the day to day administration of the system much easier. Best of all, the software updates in real time, guaranteeing you will always have all the latest and greatest features we have to offer without having to buy new software or schedule updates at each of your locations.
