Thanks Brian for these articles. We just installed a unit by VIZpin. It’s geared more towards consumer use then businesses but it utilizes Bluetooth with digital keys.

Hi John, I just joined IPVM, better late than never. How is the VIZpin unit working? Also, I am interested in why you feel VIZpin is geared more toward consumer than business. 99% of our sales are B to B

Does anyone know how a credential for these readers are reissued? Can i revoke a credential and then reissue the same credential to a different user? We have some test readers and little information on how credentials are distributed and actively managed.
