Agent E is one of the electronic perennial favourites in the EMKA portfolio. The new “EMKA mobile” app, transforms the mobile phone into the digital key for the sophisticated locking solution. In the future, it will be possible to trace, manage, and access allocated handles with various levels of permission determined by specified user profiles. This way, EMKA mobile secures personalised access and once again supplements the range of access options.
As the amount of data continues to increase, control and telecommunication cabinets are essential components of our infrastructure. Ensuring only authorised personnel have access to these data and making modifications regularly is essential. To provide authorised personnel with digital access control, EMKA has developed a solution that uses a smartphone application to unlock the handle. At this point, the app is compatible with the “Agent E-BLE” swinghandle. The communication between the app and the handle is based on Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE).
Intelligent, all-embracing solution
Until now, personalised access to Agent-E has been secure and convenient using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) cards. Now, the intuitive smartphone app provides a new way to open the handle. Other locking solutions such as the singlepoint locking and the outdoor swing handle of the 1317 series can also be opened via an app. The prerequisite is the use of the EMKA mobile app. Upon successful registration, the “handle owner” will grant the user permission to use the app. To ensure maximum security, the user’s identity is checked again each time before the handle is opened. Depending on the smartphone manufacturer, this may require entering a pin, activating a fingerprint sensor, or facial recognition. In the next step– depending on the authorisation level – a list of approved locks that are within range of the BLE signal is available. Subsequently, the user selects the lock they want to open. The “handle owner“ can grant or revoke authorisations at any time. Access is further restricted by using a predetermined time frame.
The EMKA mobile app will be available for iOS and Android platforms during the third quarter of 2023.
