HID Global reports on Silicon Valley NFC access control pilots
NFC access control pilots conducted by HID Global at two Silicon Valley companies have proved very popular with users of the new technology, the access control specialist reports.
The pilots were conducted at the premises of Netflix and Good Technology and used HID Global's recently launched iClass Seos NFC platform. Participants were issued with Samsung Galaxy S III NFC phones holding HID Global digital keys that could be used to open doors at selected locations within the two companies' facilities.
A survey conducted following the trial found that more than 80% of Netflix respondents felt that the application for unlocking a door was intuitive, and nearly 90% described it as easy to use.
