Australian access control and security technology innovator Axeze launched Axeze Blue keyless entry system at the recent Digital Lifestyle Show.
The patent-pending system turns any Bluetooth device into a key, eliminating the need to hunt for keys – simply walk or drive up and the door or gate opens. The device is typically managed from a mobile phone but any Bluetooth-enabled device can be used, says Axeze CEO Shelley Elder.
“Who hasn’t wasted time and energy looking for their keys?” Ms Elder asks. “With Axeze Blue keyless entry system all you need when you leave or enter your house is your phone. In fact you can use the same phone to access all your doors and gates – at the office, at home, at your holiday home or your parents’ house. It just dramatically reduces the stress of managing keys.
“You can even use the service to manage other products in the home with Bluetooth, giving you full home automation from your phone.”
Axeze Blue keyless entry system requires no software installation, you can add an electronic lock and register up to 20 Bluetooth-enabled devices. The lock and phone can be hidden, and 128 bit encryption adds the highest level of security.
“Now you don’t need to risk leaving a key under the mat or making multiple keys, you can simply assign temporary Axeze Blue keyless entry system access to your visitor’s mobile."
Here’s how it works: Connect Axeze Blue to your electronic door lock, gate, alarm system or garage. Pair your phone or other device with Axeze Blue using your PIN. You can set the range up to 10 metres to trigger the door, gate, or garage to unlock on approach but Axeze recommends additional security by using a PIN on your phone as you are ready to enter the premises.
“With Axeze Blue, your mobile becomes a single electronic key for your house, garage, gate and alarm system,” says Ms Elder. “Your front door unlocks as you walk up, and the alarm system disarms. There’s no need to press buttons or turn keys. You can drive up and your Bluetooth car kit uses Axeze Blue keyless entry system to open the gate or garage door."
For businesses, Axeze Blue keyless entry system can be used standalone or with a centralised access control system managed at the lock. There are no cards to administer, no keys to manage, all you have to do is register each employee’s phone. Larger companies can integrate the Axeze Access Control system using their Wiegand tags, Axeze proprietary tags, smart cards or fingerprint readers, or Axeze can design a customised interface.
“The system is useful for clubs and gyms as there are no keys or tags to distribute or manage,” Ms Elder added. “People rarely lose their phones and there is no cost involved in replacing or issuing keys, or tags.
“The software allows you to manage access rights centrally but distribute them wirelessly and remotely. It can provide access rights for a specific phone for a specific lock for a defined period.”
