ProdataKey, leading innovator of cloud based access control products and services, today announced plans to demo a new smart mobile access control card reader at ISC West. The smart reader is powered by UniKey’s mobile key platform, which powered the world’s first residential smart lock. The reader supports Bluetooth Low Energy and standard Prox formats, and offers the perfect balance between security and convenience. Leveraging the platform’s unique features, such as its Touch-to-Open® and Inside/Outside Intelligence™, users can experience unparalleled, seamless access.

ProdataKey CEO, Evan Tree, states “Once again PDK plans to challenge mainstream access control traditions. This time, by offering a disruptive method of mobile credential implementation, management and use. We believe UniKey has done a tremendous job at solving the intent issue related to presenting physical credentials or mobile devices at Bluetooth enabled readers. Our partnership will leverage technology which allows you to leave your digital key in your pocket and simply wave your hand near a PDK Bluetooth enabled reader in order to gain access to a secure area.”

ProdataKey and UniKey’s partnership comes at a pivotal time for smart access technology, as the use of mobile credentials in the commercial physical access control space is flourishing. With this solution, access control dealers will not be required to purchase digital tokens from distribution, and system administrators can assign mobile credentials to users using only their email address. The solutions will also give users peace of mind knowing they have full control of their credentials, as they can send, accept, and authenticate credentials at any time, anywhere, and from any mobile device.

“UniKey’s platform is backed by a leading line of mobile access IP and solutions surrounding Passive Intent™ and smart authentication. This combined with ProdataKey’s superior access control technology will deliver best-in-class user experiences with unrelenting security to the commercial physical access control industry” states UniKey Founder and CEO, Phil Dumas.

As ProdataKey and UniKey continue to work together on new mobile solutions the focus will be on unlocking simplicity and enhancing user experiences while upholding the greatest level of security in the PACS market.
