HID Mobile Tested

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jun 21, 2019

HID Global is one of the largest access brands, but their mobile access has had challenges. Indeed, the company has already restructured their mobile offering earlier this year.

IPVM bought and tested an HID mobile reader, credentials, and the credential management Origo portal to see how well the system performs.

Inside, we examine:

  • Which HID readers are mobile ready
  • How HID mobile apps operated with both Android and iPhone
  • Testing 'Twist & Go' gestures
  • Why HID says NFC is better than BLE
  • Tech support tips for solving performance problems
  • HID pricing for Origo and mobile readers
  • The four apps needed to configure IPVM's test system
  • How mobile credentials are added for use
  • The platform's strengths & weaknesses compared to others
  • HID vs. Farpointe Conekt
  • HID vs. proprietary mobile access Like Lenel & Brivo
  • HID vs. Openpath
  • HID vs. Proxy

Upcoming Mobile Shootout

Later this summer, IPVM will publish a shootout of mobile credential platforms, including HID and several others that have already been tested, including:
