HID Global was selected by Skanska to incorporate HID’s mobile solution for secure access to its new office complex in Warsaw.
Powered by Seos, HID Mobile Access improves the user experience and increases security throughout the entire building, from the parking lot and elevators to areas with limited access to the public.
The new Spark office complex is not only the new headquarters of Skanska, but a large part of the 70 000 square-metre office building has also been set aside for other tenants
The Spark building was designed to enable mobile access so that employees can now use their smartphones to open doors and enter secure areas. Skanska, with help from system integrator Sharry Europe, created a new system for building occupants that integrates numerous building applications, including HID Mobile Access. As a result, all building applications have been incorporated into an integrated mobile app, which marked an advancement in creating a more streamlined and convenient experience for the users.
Both Spark building employees and their guests can now move throughout the building with nothing more than a smartphone, without the risk of them gaining access to restricted areas – unless the proper access rights are granted. When users arrive at the door, they simply tap their iOS and Android devices to an iCLASS SE reader using Near-Field Communications (NFC) or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), or use HID’s ‘twist and go’ feature to gain access from a distance. Any changes to the user’s access rights are remotely managed.
“One of the most pressing objectives for facility managers in smart buildings is to crack the code on how to enable as many building applications and services on mobile devices as possible in order to simplify how occupants move through a facility and interact with building services,” said Hilding Arrehed, HID’s vice president of cloud services, physical access control. “Skanska’s integration of HID Mobile Access into their mobile platform is a perfect example of how organisations are leveraging the power of mobile credentials and the cloud to realise the full potential of creating a connected and more intuitive experience for their users, while increasing security at the same time.”
