The Security Industry Association (SIA) awarded STid with its Mobile Apps trophy for its secure and intuitive access control solution, STid Mobile ID®.
The SIA awards are a key moment for the security industry, introducing over 30,000 professionals from the sector to the most secure and innovative solutions on the market.
On April 5th STid, a leader and a pioneer in the design of high-security solutions, won the Gold Trophy for Best Access Control Mobile App. STid’s Architect® Blue readers and its STid Mobile ID® app have reinvented access control, providing fun and user-friendly identification solutions by transferring the user’s access card onto their smartphone, to work alongside or replace their RFID card. This innovative solution stood out amongst 120 other candidates: a record number of participants in the history of the competition since its launch in 1979!
“The STid Mobile ID® app has a lot of potential. What truly sets it apart is its user-friendliness. We were impressed with its various identification methods, allowing the user to open a door without getting their phone out of their pocket… This is a real improvement for organizations in search of simplicity and efficiency”, said one of the Judges. For instance, you can open a door by tapping your smartphone twice in your pocket, or by simply swiping your hand against the access reader, even while you are making a phone call or when your phone is in your bag.
