Expanded Access Control and Simplified Management and Enrollment of Farpointe's Conekt® BLE Mobile Credentials [Show All]

Connect ONE® cloud management platform, has collaborated with Farpointe Data Inc.

Monument, Colo., August 16, 2023—Connected Technologies LLC, maker of the award-winning Connect ONE® cloud management platform, has collaborated with Farpointe Data Inc., San Jose, Calif., to streamline the management of Conekt® Mobile Access Credentials. 

Connect ONE simplifies intrusion, access control, video surveillance, critical environmental monitoring and energy management systems, with one platform and interface. Conekt consists of a line of mobile-ready readers and mobile access credentials, with mobile credentials carried in Farpointe’s Conekt Wallet App. The Conekt Wallet App supports iPhone and Android mobile devices and uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate the Conekt mobile credentials with Conekt mobile-ready readers. When activated within the app, Conekt mobile credentials allow users to identify themselves at designated access points with the existing standard electronic access control system.

“I’m excited about the value that this collaboration offers Connect ONE users and Farpointe’s access control partners and their respective channels,” says Francisco Alcala, North American Sales Manager, Farpointe Data. “Connect ONE streamlines the enrollment and management of the Conekt mobile credentials while honoring Farpointe’s access system manufacturer-based go-to market strategy.” 

This latest integration expands Connect ONE's smartphone access control, which includes ScanPass® Mobile Credential (barcode-based without readers) and now Bluetooth-reader based Conekt, allowing for seamless user enrollment. Bluetooth readers may be used with traditional proximity cards and fobs as well.

Dealer/integrators who purchase Conekt mobile credentials and readers from their physical access control system manufacturers can use the supplied mass importation spreadsheet to seamlessly import mobile credentials into Connect ONE. The import simplifies enrollment since administrators now have an easy dropdown selection to assign a mobile credential to a new user. 

Once a credential is assigned, the associated card number is automatically programmed into the access control system and Connect ONE sends an email or SMS message to the user with instructions on how to obtain the Wallet App and activate their credential. The Wallet App is a single-purpose app for their credential. No login is required and it does not include any other functions to eliminate possible confusion. Credentials are purchased at a one-time cost, with no recurring fees. 

“This integration is a unique and flexible solution that extends the possibilities of access control and Bluetooth connectivity without major upgrades and add-ons,” said Dan Simon, Managing Partner, Connected Technologies. “Integration with the popular Conekt mobile credential is a simple approach to credentialing that doesn’t require extensive programming for enrollment of users.”
