SALTO Systems partners with Phunware for mobile access control solutions
By SP&T Staff
The first joint project — a luxury high rise in Miami with hundreds of doors — leverages an integration between the SALTO and Phunware platforms to allow residents to manage SALTO electronic locks with the same Phunware-powered application they use to submit work orders, receive package delivery notifications, etc.
The integration eliminates the need for a physical access card by securely sending a mobile key to a registered and verified iOS or Android device. If the device is lost or stolen, access can immediately be updated, SALTO says.
The project will function using a SHIP integration with the Phunware mobile application. SHIP is a proprietary communications protocol based on a software dialog that allows third-party access control providers to manage and control SALTO offline and wireless locking device by way of their own software graphical user interface (GUI). Even though the SALTO locks are governed by the SALTO service, the operations are triggered from Phunware’s GUI.
“This is an innovative integration that draws on strengths from both SALTO and Phunware to deliver user-friendly access control at an enterprise level,” said SALTO senior vice president of commercial sales Michael J. Mahon. “As a leading access control provider for multi family developments, SALTO is enriching our products for this important vertical and by working with Phunware we deliver a solution that is robust and efficient.”
