More and more people living in growing cities today want to get safely and securely to where they need to be. And it’s to further reduce the associated waiting times at security gates, entrance doors and elevators – and simultaneously enhance building security – that Schindler’s Transit Management Group has developed the myPORT smartphone app. The new app offers building owners substantially higher security standards than have ever been available before; and it offers the buildings’ occupants greater freedom, too.
Simple, swift and secure: that’s the thinking behind Schindler’s new building access app. Any building occupant who has installed the myPORT app just needs to unlock their smartphone with their PIN code or Touch ID and show it to the myPORT reader. It may seem incredibly simple to the user; but myPORT is based on an e-banking-level system that meets the highest security standards. The system uses a combination of timing, building topology and multiple data channels to ensure that the smartphone user really is authorized to access the building concerned. Occupants can use the myPORT app not only to open doors but to order pre-programmed elevators, too, making it substantially easier and faster for them and their visitors to move around the building, all without taking the phone out of their pocket or bag.
