DMP’s SR3 Bluetooth Reader and Mobile Credential

July 23, 2021
Frictionless access control for hassle-free entry

SPRINGFIELD, MO — July 19, 2021 - Because we use our phones for practically everything, we rarely go anywhere without them. This spring, DMP announced the release of its SR3 Bluetooth & Proximity Reader for use with existing 125 kHz cards or via a Mobile Credential that’s easily and uniquely deployed within the DMP Virtual Keypad™ app.

“With this Bluetooth solution, you’ve got frictionless access control — the phone remains in your pocket for hassle-free entry,” says DMP Vice President of Marketing Mark Hillenburg. “Users get the convenience they prefer, plus it creates an easy-to-deploy, one-time purchase mobile credential without all the hassle and expense of ongoing monthly costs.”

Easy to manage

DMP’s SR3 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and proximity reader gives customers an advanced access control solution with mobile credentials that are easy to manage virtually without having to ship, mail or deliver physical credentials. Once credentials are assigned, those users automatically receive an email with instructions on how to log in to Virtual Keypad to begin using their mobile credentials immediately.

“Keep in mind,” Hillenburg adds, “customers can allow the Virtual Keypad app to be used for mobile credentials only. This means they can give their users the access they’re assigned but control the authority of any user and keep other system functions, such as Arming and viewing video or any other app functions from appearing on their app menu.”   

Instantaneous ordering and issuing

From purchase to issuing, the Mobile Credentials are electronically and instantly transmitted to the user. Any number of the Mobile Credentials can be purchased and managed directly from DMP’s administrative portal and instantly assigned to customers.

“Customers will appreciate such fast service and the ability to give their users the smartphone convenience they prefer,” Hillenburg adds. “There’s no need to waste money on the logistics of old-fashioned cards and tags when you can completely manage these mobile credentials easily and securely from a single screen.”

But is it secure?

With a mobile access credential that’s loaded on Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, the card data is nearly impossible to copy or clone — plus, it’s far less likely to be lost or stolen. Bluetooth operates flexibly through wireless networking at short range. When in range for access control, BLE securely transmits the credential to the reader using encrypted technology that’s protected behind the smartphone’s security parameters. Additionally, the credential is programed with a unique ID number that’s embedded on the readers so that readers and credentials only acknowledge each other with matching ID numbers.

Flexibility – Mobile Credential and 125 kHz Prox

While this new SR3 reader capitalizes on advanced BLE technology, it also supports 125 kHz proximity credentials. This gives businesses the flexibility to gradually transition their readers to the newer technology while also accommodating employees with proximity credentials.
