In the previous post, we introduced you to UniKey’s APIs. Now we’re going into the other important piece to the puzzle: our SDK. In case you’re not familiar, SDK stands for Software Development Kit. In general, an SDK refers to a collection of software used for developing applications for a specific device or operating system. A few good examples of an SDK are the MAC OS X SDK and the iPhone iOS SDK, which enables developers to create applications on those operating systems. In the same vein, UniKey’s SDK allows partners to integrate our mobile application into their own pre-existing security application through straightforward documentation. This means that your team can skip the hassle of finding a way to deliver mobile credentials from the cloud to a Bluetooth lock or reader, and focus on creating a top notch user experience instead.

As we mentioned in the last post, with UniKey you have access to our mobile access control platform’s APIs and SDKs, which can be used to develop access control solutions tailored to a company or products precise specifications. The use of UniKey’s SDK can also minimize the amount of unique code a developer would have to write, preventing unnecessary duplications of developer’s efforts. Moreover, it builds security into the product, giving you one less thing to worry about. Access to UniKey’s APIs, SDK, and development team can reduce a product’s time spent in development and testing; cutting down the security and compliance risks encountered with in-house development of mobile key products. In this, your team can move through product development faster and smarter.

UniKey’s best-in-class technology offers end-to-end convenience, connectivity, efficiency, and market value. Because of the product partnership, you can go to market faster, and position yourself as a leader in the industry. You also have the ability to monitor activity in real-time and use data to make informed business decisions.
