What are smartphone credentials?

Smartphone or mobile credentials are a method of gaining entry to an electronically-locked door by sending a valid signal from a smartphone.

As a method of access control, smartphone credentials are:

  • convenient for users
  • much less likely to be forgotten or lost
  • cost-effective in the long run

These days, our whole lives are on our phones. Why should access control be any different?
