by | Sep 22, 2023

In this day and age, we depend on our smartphones for just about everything, so why should your access control system be any different? With Brivo Mobile Pass, it doesn’t have to be. For those looking for a cloud-based smartphone access control system, Brivo has exactly what they are looking for with a full suite of access control features, all accessible from right in the palm of their hands. However, this doesn’t let you know everything that Brivo Mobile Pass is capable of, So let’s take a closer look at exactly what Brivo Mobile Pass is, what it is capable of, and exactly how it works.

Brivo Mobile Pass is a cloud-based credential system that allows users to replace traditional keycards and fobs with their smartphones. This system is part of the Brivo OnAir platform and is a built-in feature of the Brivo Access cloud-based control system, meaning there is no need to install new door readers in order to take advantage of this new technology. This also means that just like the security platform itself, it can integrate with a wide variety of existing security products.

In fact, the options are just about endless, such as integrating with third-party access management systems, security cameras, intercoms, and other security solutions. This includes offering access management for many forms of entry, both interior and exterior. Mobile Pass can be used for storefronts, gates, doors, cabinets, lockers, elevators, garages, and more. This flexibility in integration is an intentional design feature that allows users to design security systems to their own specifications without the limitations offered by most control systems.

How Does Brivo Mobile Pass Work?

Brivo Mobile Pass is extremely easy to use both for administrators and users alike. Just as with Brivo’s existing OnAir Mobile Application, the system allows administrators the ability to control the system all from their smartphones. However, unlike the previous versions, users can also gain access to secure areas using their smartphones.

In order to do this, an administrator simply will select a user and create an invitation, which will be sent to a user using email. The user will then simply select the “Add” button from the email in order to activate the Brivo Mobile Pass app. The user will then be able to open doors and access secure areas all from their smartphones, just as they would with traditional keycards and fobs.

Users are not limited to only one facility or account and can instead use Mobile Pass for entry across many unaffiliated structures. All they need is an invitation via email to get started, and the app will identify the nearest doors to them, allowing seamless and instant access.

Benefits Of Mobile Pass Credentials

There are many benefits to using mobile pass credentials, and we will list a few of these below.

  • Increased Security: Mobile credentials allow administrators to guarantee who is accessing facilities by requiring multi-factor authentication. These credentials cannot be cloned and can be revoked instantly, ensuring you are always in control.
  • Easy To Use: Mobile credentials make security easier than ever by removing the need to assign or replace key cards. Credentials can be assigned and revoked remotely, all from an administrator’s smart device.
  • Improve User Experience: Users can move about facilities effortlessly. Brivo Mobile Pass identifies and displays nearby access points so that users can instantly unlock permitted areas.
  • Cost Effective: Administrators will no longer need to spend time and money replacing lost key cards or rekeying locks. Brivo Mobile Pass will also integrate into most existing security equipment, meaning no unexpected expenses in order to get started.

How Secure Is Brivo Mobile Pass?

Brivo Mobile Pass is much more secure than traditional keycard systems and avoids the flaws associated with most Bluetooth mobile access systems. Rather than using stored mobile credentials, Brivo uses a cloud-based authentication system that controls access through a secure encrypted channel to a data center. Because user’s smartphones will request access through the cloud at each access point, credentials cannot be copied, and administrators can schedule and/or revoke access at any time.

In addition, mobile credentials avoid many of the problems associated with physical tokens such as keycards and fobs. Brivo Mobile Pass uses multi-factor authentication, including the device biometrics built into modern smartphones, such as fingerprint and FaceID, making it impossible for users to lend their credentials to a friend or colleague or for lost credentials to be used by others. Ultimately, Brivo Mobile Pass offers greater security than other traditional or mobile systems with security and encryption. With Mobile Pass, Administrators can be certain who is accessing the facility at all times.
