LenelS2 Blue Diamond mobile access control.

LenelS2 distributed locally by BGWT reports its BlueDiamond mobile readers now support iCLASS card technologies.

BlueDiamond has also been enhanced to include a Phone as a Badge (PhaaB) feature, enabling hands-free access to building entrances, offices, meeting rooms, or any door with an enabled card reader, according to the company.

In its ongoing technology collaborations with 3millID and LEGIC Identsystems, LenelS2 says it has enhanced the reach of BlueDiamond multi-factor readers with additional support for iCLASS card application data.

The readers now support virtually all major card technologies, from standard 125kHz proximity card technologies to MIFARE, DESFire EV1 and EV2 and now iCLASS card technologies, as well as mobile credentials using iOS, Apple Watch and Android devices.

“The BlueDiamond solution with Phone as a Badge makes access control an effortless experience for users — both employees and authorized visitors,” says Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2. “The simple issuance and management of mobile credentials is tied together by a Cloud-based server integrated with LenelS2’s industry-leading OnGuard security management system.”
