NEXTaccess

The use of RFID cards to open doors is widely used by various organisations in the tourism, security and facility management area. Enabling virtual keys on an NFC device adds a significant value in terms of provisioning and managing access rights of individual users. E.g. access rights are assigned over-the-air (OTA) the use of NFC technology improves the process significantly. A virtual key chain on the mobile phone visualises the available keys.

The management of opening and closing locks can be simplified using NFC enabled devices, e.g. a self service hostel issues digital keys for a defined period of time with a PIN code to their guests.
