Arriving on the Go

Why we love mobile access control

Wind the clocks back twenty years and the smartphone as we know it wouldn’t even exist. Think about that. This technology has become so deeply integrated with just about every moment of our waking life, it’s amazing such a shift didn’t take longer. As we’re all well aware, the power to connect with loved ones, learn how to play piano, order dinner and much more is waiting for a tap or two in our pockets. Every aspect of life and business has adapted to mobile, and access control is no different.

At Card Lock, we’re committed to staying on the leading edge of the access control industry and bringing you everything it has to offer. That’s why we’re excited to talk to you about what mobile access control can do for your business security and our partnership with HID Mobile.


Managing key card access can be tricky. Someone has to be trained to facilitate and keep track of the handout and return of key cards in a traditional security system. With mobile access control, this is no longer the case. All permissions can be easily managed from an online portal, and access can be enabled or revoked at a touch of a button.


This one’s a bit of a no-brainer but, yes, the less plastic and chemical waste produced, the better for the environment. Making the decision to invest in mobile access control is a small but significant step your company can take in the reducing of its carbon footprint. And, because you’ll find that mobile access control makes your life a bit easier in many other ways, this is a bit of a win-win, no?


We’ve partnered with HID Global to make mobile access control as effortless as possible. Thanks to an operating system-agnostic platform, access control is seamless no matter which side you’re on in the great Android/IOS face-off. The readers themselves have a much longer read range than key cards ever did, so garage and vehicle access becomes much less of a hassle as well. Oh, and mobile access lends a bit of secret agent cachet to any facility, so it’s easier to impress clients and employees as well.

If only we could all have our own theme song to walk in to.
