Benefits Of NFC Wallet Technology In Access Control

SAN DIEGO - Feb. 26, 2023 - PRLog -- The NFC Wallet is the technology that is turning the access control industry upside down.  It is a wonderful juxtaposition of legacy methodology combined with technological disruption. A familiar behavior of presenting a credential in a known manner with an explosion of new use cases with new market entrants.

This single technology that has been unlocked to the access market by the global technology giants of Apple, Google, and Samsung stands to reorganize the balance of market share that has largely remained stagnant since the 1980s.  Similar to seismic changes that occurred in the video surveillance market that upended decades old industry leaders, NFC Wallet credentials have started a rumble that may reorganize access control in a way that will forever shake the status quo.

Let's first start with a little background of what is an NFC Wallet credential for access control.  It is an access credential that is provisioned inside of the Apple or Google Wallet that can be presented to a traditional access control reader.  The credential is a part of the device and not an "app."  It is exceptionally secure, easy to use, and can even be configured to be used when the phone is dead.

In order to understand the "how," one must first understand the "why."  In a future story, I will write about the "how," but today I feel we should start with why the NFC Wallet is disrupting access control.
