Open Options Integrates New Cloud-based Mobile Credential App into DNA Fusion Software

Organizations can now transition to mobile access at their own pace

Addison, TX 10/14/20 – Open Options, a leading provider of innovative access control solutions, today announced the launch of ACT ID, a new cloud-based mobile credential app that enables organizations to utilize smartphones with existing WaveLynx multi-technology readers for secure access to doors in office buildings, government facilities, healthcare institutions, schools, residences and a growing variety of enterprises. ACT ID is integrated into Open Options’ flagship software, DNA Fusion, providing a user-friendly experience with the digital security and convenience of mobile credentials.

“Companies are increasingly wanting to transition from traditional physical credentials to mobile credentials with the same or better level of security, says Chuck O’Leary, President of Open Options. The ACT ID app is a perfect solution as it allows users of DNA Fusion software, paired with WaveLynx multi technology readers, to easily upgrade to mobile technology with little effort. Many people already carry smart and mobile devices as a part of their working lives, and by moving to a mobile ecosystem, organizations can better position themselves to take advantage of built-in technologies such as biometrics, multi-factor authentication, and geo fencing without adding expensive hardware.”

ACT ID works seamlessly with WaveLynx Ethos Wiegnd/OSDP readers for a touchless experience in which users hold their phone close to the reader and open a door. The application does not require any subscriptions or fees, making it an extremely flexible and affordable solution that allows organizations to transition to mobile access at their own pace.
The mobile application supports NFC for Android and BLE for iOS and provides complete user privacy as all data is stored in a separate secure element. Its simplistic design and ease-of-use eliminates the need for manual verification, as ACT ID communicates securely with DNA Fusion by syncing data daily for authentication and verification of ID.

ACT ID is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
