Bitwards Mobile Access

What is Bitwards Mobile Access?

Bitwards Mobile Access is a universal door or access point solution offering a complete and independent cloud-based access control system.

Bitwards Mobile Access converts mobile phones into smart keys to access any building or space.

How does Bitwards Mobile Access work?

End-users’ phones communicate with locks using Bluetooth or NFC. A single mobile app is used to access multiple assets like doors, gates, cabinets, lockers, and readers, etc. This opens up the possibility of touchless access in times of global hygienic concerns.

Assets are digitalized by adding a device — adapter or controller —  to the existing lock. Our partners have a variety of suitable devices to choose from that require no wiring or network and are quick to install.

Through the Bitwards Cloud Service, digital keys can be shared securely with anyone, anywhere; they are easy to manage and deliver to the desired users’ smartphones

Digital keys can be valid from minutes to days or months and may be revoked at any time — even when smartphones are offline!

Why is Bitwards Mobile Access unique?

With Bitwards Mobile Access, you will also get a cloud based access control system! It means that you can manage your keys easily without having to buy a separate system.

Offline means you save

Bitwards solution is offline or stand-alone. What does it mean?

The information is exchanged between the lock and users mobile phone and there is no need for a real-time network.

Therefore, the solution is offline; you don’t need to install any cablings or network, which means the system’s initial cost is much lower than in traditional access control.

Also, this means new access points possibilities for access control. You can, for instance, install Bitwards in remote locations or underground, where no network is available.
