Home security enhanced in a mobile world

November 16, 2018


Multi-family building security is being enhanced through links to the mobile phones that are in the hands of the vast majority of younger Canadians.
Mobile access control enables smart phones and wearables to function as credentials in providing access to secured buildings, rooms and community areas, according to Toronto-based Axis Communication.
The advanced systems were designed for commercial building security but are now being promoted for large residential projects.
The systems not only allow building access from a mobile phone app, but also provide surveillance by collecting data and providing insight into operations and efficiencies of the project. Mobile access control can be used to compliment or replace traditional physical cards and fobs—meaning access can be layered onto existing technology and hardware without expensive retrofits.
These mobile apps would, for example, allow someone to lock or unlock a door from anywhere, view visitors at the door and send an alarm notice if something goes wrong. They also keep a complete record of access activity.
