smart people identification

People and access control specialist, Nortech, is now offering smart people identification using mobile access technology.

The Nedap MACE platform consists of a cloud-based service, readers and the MACE app, allowing any access control system to use smartphones as access credentials.

Capable of receiving and storing multiple virtual identity credentials, details can be presented to MACE readers using NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy or QR codes. The process of issuing these credentials is quick and easy, as no physical credentials need to be distributed.

The virtual credentials are securely transferred to the MACE app via the cloud-based MACE server and can be allocated to users in one of the many available formats, including Wiegand 26.

Several Nedap MACE products are now supplied by Nortech, including the MACE Reader MM, MACE Reader MM QR and the MACE Smart Slim Mobile Access Reader MM.

Nedap’s MACE Reader MM is a multi-technology reader designed to be used with the MACE app and MACE virtual credentials. Supporting Bluetooth, NFC, smart cards and proximity cards, the reader is small enough to be mullion mounted and is configurable using a free downloadable tool that connects to the USB port.

The MACE Reader MM QP provides all the features of the original MACE Reader MM, but it also includes a QR reader allowing it to read QR codes displayed on smartphones.

MACE Smart is a compact smartphone access control reader, supporting credentials that contain smart card technology. The reader is configurable using a free downloadable tool and is characterised by its slim design – a popular solution for doors that require a combination of security and convenience.

All Nedap systems support a number of well-established industry-standard protocols, enabling seamless integration into any existing or new building access control system.

MACE is designed to work in any access control applications where smartphones are to be used, including building access control, parking management and event ticketing systems.
