AUSTIN, Texas. – HID Global, a provider of identity solutions, has announced the availability of its HID Origo cloud platform, built on its access control infrastructure.
The firm says the platform combines its technologies for mobile IDs (and location services in the future) with its access control architecture to bring together physical security and a wide range of building applications, services and IoT use cases via a unified cloud experience.
“HID Origo lays the foundation for a broad ecosystem of cloud-based access control technologies, products, services and business models that will accelerate workplace innovation; it dramatically increases our partners’ capabilities to create more connected and seamless building experiences for end users,” said Hilding Arrehed, vice president of Cloud Services, Physical Access Control, with HID Global, in a prepared statement. “The platform will remove integration barriers between access control systems and smart building applications, and we will continue to expand its value with capabilities that further improve how people securely move through a facility and interact with its services.”
HID says the new platform provides an app-based innovation model that delivers a suite of integration, enablement, developer tools and services geared towards simplifying how partners and new developers and resellers bring access control solutions to market. The platform embeds cloud connections and IoT functionality as app extensions into mobile devices, HID readers and controllers, and gives developers direct access to this hardware via HID Origo application programming interfaces and software developer kits. It also enables data analytics to be used for new capabilities, including remote reader configuration, predictive access control system maintenance and intent detection for more seamless and personalized workplace experiences.
