Enterprise access control features
Access control for enterprise applications brings a unique set of challenges. With hundreds or thousands of users across multiple locations, selecting an access control provider that can centralize and streamline your operations is essential.
Scalable systems and operations
Openpath offers a full line of access control hardware that’s completely scalable, including a Single Door Controller, elevator boards, and 4-door and 8-door Smart Hubs. These products are designed to be modular and work with all Openpath products, making it easy to add or remove entries on your network whenever you need to.
In addition, Openpath offers a robust enterprise software management package, designed specifically to cater to the needs of multi-site businesses. Features include the award-winning Flexible Lockdown solution for proactive emergency response, granular site-specific permissions, and a Rules Engine to create custom event triggers. Openpath’s annual subscription fees are also less expensive for large enterprise businesses, as HID charges per user for their mobile access control systems.
Elevators, turnstiles, and parking garages
People need secure, convenient access across all the different types of entries and spaces in their workplaces. HID readers and boards can be used in many different commercial settings, but not all their hardware supports contactless and mobile credentials. All Openpath readers and controllers have full mobile and touchless access capabilities. Easily install and configure access for all your entry types in a single dashboard, with support for destination dispatch elevators, popular turnstile systems, and parking gates. Plus, the open standards mean integration with best-of-breed technology partners is seamless and simple.
HID offers legacy access control features for enterprise, including badge printing and traditional fob-based access methods. While Openpath doesn’t have their own badge printing devices, you can easily design and print custom ID badges with your own badge printer or the InstantCard integration. Both Openpath and HID also support digital badges that can be stored on a mobile device.
