Mobbeel is proud of participating along with Caceres City Council on the Garage 2.0 Biometric security project. Moreover, we apreciate the City Council’s firm commitment to innovation and development as the way forward.
The project consists of adding a biometric access control system to six rooms of the Garage 2.0 Innovation Factory.
That access control is based on the use of smartphones and biometric recognition technology developed by Mobbeel that allows to identify people from unique features, such as iris or handwritten signature. The system verifies the identity of the Garage 2.0 users, and in case of being authorized, it allows the access to the rooms that are part of the project.
How does it work?
Once the project is over, The Garage 2.0 users can access to the rooms that they have been authorized to, using their smartphone as if it were a key. They only need to get closer to the room they want to access. Once there and using the application specially designed for smartphones, the user verifies its identity. Furthermore, If the system checks that the user have access to that room, the smartphone will securely and wirelessly communicate with the door and allow access.
There are several advantages:
No more keys, now you are the key.
The need of physical distribution of keys is removed. If the Garage 2.0 user has an smartphone supported by the system, he can use it to access to the rooms in which has been authorized.In case of not having a supported device, Garage 2.0 will make available several supported terminals to the users.
Even if the smartphone is stolen or lost, no one without authorization can access to that rooms thanks to the biometric recognition technology.
Three levels of security
- Something you only know: the specific access code of the room you want to access.
- Something you only own: the mobile device with the access application installed.
- Something you only are: You only have access to the room through your iris or your handwritten signature.
