Successes with GFOS.Access Control

What is Bluetooth Low Energy?

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a wireless communication technology that was specially developed for short distances. The technology is characterized by low energy consumption. This makes it ideal for applications in which devices such as smartphones or wearables need to communicate over longer periods of time with minimal battery consumption. BLE not only supports data transmission, but also secure connections using advanced encryption methods. The technology enables a secure and energy-efficient solution for wireless communication between devices, e.g. for mobile access control systems.

What are the requirements for using access control via smartphone?

The prerequisite for using access control on a cell phone is the use of GFOS 4.8plus or higher with an active access control or time tracking module. A terminal connection via the modular communication interface is also required.

What are the system requirements for using the BLE Access Control system?

To be able to use the Bluetooth Low Energy app in combination with the GFOS software, you need a smartphone with Android 8 or higher or iOS 12 or higher. Your device must also support Bluetooth 4.0. In addition, your company must be using time recording terminals and access readers as well as the INTUS ACM80e access manager - each with the latest firmware versions.
