Allegion has extended its mobile credentials offering with the support of Google Wallet, which aims to provide a secure way for employees to access their workplace using Android smartphones.

According to the company, by leveraging the convenience and security of Google Wallet, employees can now enjoy access to buildings, secure areas and more, all with a simple tap of their phone.

A forward-thinking approach

“Allegion’s strategic decision to support employee badge within Google Wallet reflects the company’s dedication to innovation and its forward-thinking approach to workplace management,” said Olivia Renaud, Group Product Manager for credentials at Allegion.

“This expands Allegion‘s existing offering within the mobile credential category which includes Bluetooth and other NFC wallet-based credentials.

“We are excited to provide yet another innovative technology that is supported by Allegion’s existing security ecosystem.”

Employee badges in Google Wallet are compatible with a variety of Schlage wireless locks, wall readers and reader controllers that are NFC enabled including Schlage NDE and LE Series, XE360 and AD Series wireless locks, MTB Series wall readers and Schlage RC Series reader controllers.

What are the advantages?

Key benefits include:

  • Convenience: employees can say goodbye to physical badges and the hassle of lost or forgotten IDs by using their phone to unlock office doors and access different areas of the building or campus, including elevators and turnstiles
  • Enhanced Security: employee badges in Google Wallet are protected by multiple layers of security, ensuring that sensitive information remains safe. And the credential can be easily deactivated if a phone is lost or stolen
  • Seamless Access: employees can use their employee badge in Google Wallet with a simple tap to an enabled Schlage device. The technology does not require them to unlock their device or open an app
