HID Global Collaborates with Honeywell Building Solutions to Create New Mobile Access Experience for Occupants within Buildings
- HID Global innovation is part of the new Honeywell Vector Occupant App for buildings, enabling users to open doors with their mobile devices.
- Honeywell used HID Seos credential technology and app software developer kits (SDKs) to create the customized mobile access solution for the new occupant app.
HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, on November 17, 2016, announced that Honeywell Building Solutions has integrated HID technology into its new Honeywell Vector Occupant App to transform the work environment, giving building occupants convenient, connected experiences in facilities. With mobile access as one of its key features, the new Honeywell Vector Occupant App makes it possible for building occupants to use their mobile devices for card-free secure access to a single area of a building, an entire facility or multiple locations around the globe.
“HID Global shares a commitment with Honeywell to deliver a more satisfying, mobile-centric experience in smart buildings,” said Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director of the Physical Access Control Solutions business with HID Global. “We look forward to exploring opportunities with Honeywell to extend the benefits of using trusted identities on mobile devices for a variety of building services and applications.”
Honeywell utilized tailored integration workshops and testing offered through HID Professional Services, along with the HID Seos credential technology and app SDKs, to create the customized mobile access solution for its occupant app. The solution features HID Global’s patented “Twist and Go” gesture technology to open doors from a distance using a smartphone.
Working independently of underlying building systems, the app also includes HID Global’s mobile access system to streamline the management of trusted IDs for building administrators. The technology in the app supports mobile credentials, providing building managers more control over credential transactions.
The Honeywell Vector Occupant App demonstrates the value of HID Global solutions that are part of the company’s mobility initiative, which enables users to confidently use more applications, on the go, with a trusted ID that can be carried on smart devices.
