HID Global launches cloud platform to help create “worldwide innovation ecosystem” for connected workplaces

Trusted identity solutions specialist HID Global has announced the availability of its HID Origo cloud platform that “opens a brand new world of opportunities” for partners to create more seamless and intuitive workplace experiences built on HID’s proven access control infrastructure.

The platform combines HID’s technologies for mobile IDs (and location services in the future) with the company’s expansive access control architecture to bring together physical security and a wide range of building applications, services and Internet of Things (IoT) use cases via a unified cloud experience.

“HID Origo lays the foundation for a broad ecosystem of cloud-based access control technologies, products, services and business models that will accelerate workplace innovation,” said Hilding Arrehed, vice-president of cloud services within the Physical Access Control division at HID Global. “This solution dramatically increases our partners’ capabilities to create more connected and seamless building experiences for end users. The platform removes integration barriers between access control systems and smart building applications. We’ll continue to expand its value with capabilities that further improve how people securely move through a facility and interact with its services.”

The new platform provides an app-based innovation model that delivers a comprehensive suite of integration, enablement, developer tools and services geared towards simplifying how partners and a growing community of new developers and resellers bring access control solutions to market. Rather than requiring that entire solutions be developed and enabled one customer or site at a time, HID Origo makes it possible to develop new applications and integrated solutions for HID’s complete installed base of millions of access control devices and systems all at once.

How HID Origo works

The HID Origo platform embeds cloud connections and IoT functionality as app extensions into mobile devices, HID readers and controllers, and gives developers direct access to this hardware via HID Origo application programming interfaces and software developer kits already proven through HID’s mobile access solution.

The platform also enables data analytics to be used for new capabilities, including remote reader configuration, predictive access control system maintenance and intent detection for more seamless and personalised workplace experiences.

Enabling new business models

Today, the platform enables subscription-based services, with customers already taking advantage of the model’s simplicity. Examples include a deployment by a world-leading biotechnology company who has been an early adopter of HID Origo subscription services for ordering and managing mobile ID replenishment over the air when employees lose or must replace their smart phones.

The company has replaced its traditional access control readers with 2,300 Bluetooth-enabled iCLASS SE readers to support its mixed environment of 12,000 mobile IDs and 40,000 Seos ID cards.

The subscription billing model offered through HID Origo makes it easier for the company to order and manage mobile IDs while improving forecasting, budgeting and reporting. It also actively streamlines transferring mobile ID subscription licenses across employees and registering multiple mobile IDs across multiple devices without any additional cost.
