DMP Introduces Bluetooth Reader and Mobile Credentials
Giving Customers the Convenience of Access Control With Their Smartphones
Instead of keeping track of a key fob or card, some people may prefer using their smartphones to get into their businesses or secure work areas. We now can give those customers the convenience they prefer.
The new Farpointe Data CSR-35 Conekt Bluetooth Reader and CMC-2 Smartphone Mobile Access Credentials are the newest members of DMP’s expanded line of high-security access control products. Together, they allow iPhone or Android smartphones to function as a contactless electronic access control credential.
The new readers can be installed on a metal door, window frame, or flat surface at any entry point, and are also compatible with DMP’s DE2 smartcard credential. Like the DE2, the new CMC-2 mobile credential is based on MIFARE DESFire EV1 technology, offering an even higher security encryption technology standard than traditional credentials.
How It All Works
Like any other app they’re using, your customers’ authorized users would just need to download and install the required app, called Conekt Wallet, which is available on the Apple App or Google Play Stores. Once the app is installed and the virtual credentials are activated, users can present their phones to the reader — this establishes a secure Bluetooth connection and an encrypted transmission to the user’s smartphone.
The new Farpointe Data CSR-35 Conekt Bluetooth Reader and Bluetooth mobile credentials are available now. Click here for a FAQ outlining the ordering and activation process.
