Brivo Labs debuts new Google Glass application

Brivo Labs, a business unit of Brivo Systems dedicated to bringing new innovations to the security industry through social identity, mobile applications and trust networks, announced on Thursday its first market offering, OKDoor.

OKDoor is a Glassware application that integrates with Brivo Labs’ SAM API to provide physical access control with Google Glass. It will serve as one of the first integrations that connects Google Glass to physical access management.

OKDoor provides notification to a person inside a building that someone outside needs to gain access. First, an outdoor camera pushes a snapshot of the individual to the Google Glass wearer. The wearer is then presented with the ability to allow or deny entry. The OKDoor user can remotely unlock the door and allow the visitor inside.

Brivo Labs’ SAM API can authenticate visitors and associate several forms of secure credentials to access physical devices. Social authentication and provisioning of access is implemented by connecting with leading social network platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Life360. SAM also provides developers with the resources to perform data analysis, manage devices, authorize schedules, get access to hosted IP video and offer real time device control with remote automation.

“We are excited to reinforce our leadership position in the social access management space and show innovative examples of how we merge current technologies with traditional security and access control,” said Lee Odess, vice president of marketing for Brivo Systems. “OKDoor is a prime example of the convergence of these two areas.”
