HID Global, the secure identity solutions specialist, has just announced that Honeywell Building Solutions has integrated HID technology into its new Honeywell Vector Occupant App to transform the workplace environment, giving building occupants convenient and 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 within 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 used tailored integration workshops and testing offered through HID Professional Services, along with the HID Seos credential technology and app SDKs, to create the customised 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 smart phone.
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, in turn 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.
