Many workplaces and buildings use access control systems to allow authorized entry. Historically, this has often involved equipment which required physical interaction to be used—touching an access card on a card reader, opening a door by touching the handle, or pushing a button to exit, for example. Even riding an elevator involved calling the lift car and choosing a destination by pressing buttons.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Frictionless access enables a building to identify an individual and allows secure, controlled entry with remote or contactless biometric acquisition. Because it doesn’t need physical credentials to operate, it requires minimal visible infrastructure yet permits passive access for minimal impact on occupants—with the most accurate location awareness.
