On your pricing you list an example of a 40 user system. I've been told by HID that they require a minimum of 100 subscription credentials per order. Did this change recently or was i given bad information?
Thanks for the question, it seems like it should be more common.
But: none of the companies in our mobile tests offer QR codes, and I can't think of any 'permanent' options that do use them. In part, this is because of the special readers required that are not common in access. (There are options like: Access-IS or even apps like Axis: Use QR Codes Instead of Access Cards)
This is an interesting article, will there be any future articles that include the STid range of Bluetooth readers? And maybe a comparison review between HID vs. STid mobile credentials including setup, cost, and performance.
I have looked for more info about STid readers within the IPVM domain and can not find any dedicated articles or test, hopefully, this is something worth exploring in the near future.
Great write up. You can order the reader with the MOB already programmed. That eliminates the need for using reader manager unless you want to change some other default settings. HID is still working out some kinks with the reader manager application but it beats dealing with configuration cards! Looking forward to more functionality.
What about 3millID which makes the Lenel and Interlogix mobile reader solution (BlueDiamond)?
Just a point on range & auto unlock, we have used the HID mobile readers with read range set higher & set to tap & they can passively read the card well, it is true it will only work at 10m+ with the gesture unlock. However after being involved in multiple roll outs obviously you would not do this in a site where you have a greater density or multiple readers are in similar range to avoid the wrong reader picking up the the BLE transmission(such as a corridor with readers on both side of hallyway).
In my opinion long read range use cases are few and far between, I think is only really necessary at vehicle gates & isolated points of entry for convenience. I found that products with auto entry features are more popular in our region with single door applications, I have also seen some manufacturers remove the feature citing nuisance reads when within range.
