“Mobile Connect really brings the best of both worlds to the market,” said Steve Bell, Chief Technology Officer at Gallagher.

“It makes access simpler and easier for users while operating on highly-secure, cutting-edge FIDO protocols that give businesses supreme confidence in their security.”

Delivering more than just peace-of-mind, Gallagher’s new mobile solution significantly reduces costs and simplifies administration through a range of exclusive features.

In addition to eliminating the costs of supplying and replacing access cards, Mobile Connect customers will enjoy a unique subscription model, which allows for credentials to be transferred between users and reissued to devices.

Using two-step remote provisioning, Mobile Connect delivers secure enrollment by sending an email invitation with SMS code to verify the user and mobile device. This creates further administration efficiencies by removing the need to physically deliver an access card.

Optional two-factor authentication, either PIN or biometric, provides added security and flexibility for sites using Mobile Connect.

“We’re thrilled with this latest release in our mobile technology development program and the simplicity it brings to our customers. Our goal is always to develop simple solutions underpinned by the strongest security, and that’s what we’ve achieved here,” said Bell.

Security on the move

The Command Centre Mobile App securely connects your mobile device to Command Centre, allowing you to manage everyday security from anywhere on site.

Being mobile gives security personnel and business owners the flexibility to monitor their system from any location, maximizing productivity and providing greater presence and situational awareness.

Alarms can be securely monitored and acknowledged on the go. Door and zone status can be checked and overridden and guards can challenge cardholder identities any time, anywhere.

Mobile badging, automated SMS messaging, and seamless integration between mobile control and building management systems, are just some of the features delivered by this award-winning product.
