STid wins the Award for Best Access Control Mobile App at ISC West, Las Vegas

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.

This new prize rewards advanced functionalities in terms of user-friendliness, security and technological innovation. Vincent Dupart, CEO of STid, concluded: “This fifth trophy recognizes STid’s ability to bring advances to the security industry with its non-proprietary, open technologies that make people’s lives easier. The award consolidates our objective to develop new solutions to reach new international markets, including North America”.
