Kantech Releases EntraPass v8.0 with Mobile App Enhancements and a Redesigned web Interface

The latest version of EntraPass Security Management Software launches with new features relating to short range wireless technology, multi-factor authentication for mobile cardholders and an improved web client user interface.

EntraPass v8.0 software offers several enhancements to the EntraPass go and EntraPass go Pass mobile apps. EntraPass go, which allows remote use of the EntraPass software, provides support for American Dynamics network video recorders (NVRs). EntraPass go Pass mobile credential now supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) capabilities in ioSmart Multi-Technology Readers. EntraPass operators can choose to ignore BLE technology, enforce BLE or use a combination of both when appropriate. Multi-factor authentication is also available for EntraPass go Pass cardholders presenting at any door with an ioSmart reader. In addition to the existing card and PIN authentication, biometric data can be used as a second form of authentication offering an added level of identity protection with more secure access to doors using a mobile phone.

In some cases, ioSmart readers in combination with EntraPass go Pass multi-factor authentication can replace the need to install an expensive biometric reader”, said Gabriel Labrecque, Product Manager, Kantech Software/ Integrations, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “On a per door basis you can disable the card reader, meaning that only EntraPass go Pass will be allowed to unlock the door through the use of biometric verification from the phone itself.

EntraPass web, where Silverlight is now no longer an installation requirement, has been redesigned to provide a more efficient and user-friendly interface for an enhance user experience. For operational speed, graphical icons are more intuitive, tabs replace the dock views and the system remembers the exact position of the most recently opened screen. Setting up hardware components is simplified by a sequential column layout, while the logical visual architecture makes monitoring and changing the hardware configuration direct.

Furthermore making sure installations are cyber secure, ITV2 Type 2 encryption has been added as an integration option for use with both the DSC PowerSeries Neo and PowerSeries Pro intrusion panels.

New Product Announcement

EntraPass go Pass Support for Apple Watch®

EntraPass go Pass for the Apple Watch® extends the power of the EntraPass go Pass mobile application to the iOS Apple Watch environment. Using EntraPass go Pass on an Apple Watch makes credential use even easier. Instead of searching through a bag or pocket for a smart phone, you can push a button on your watch when you enter or exit a restricted area.

Using EntraPass go Pass, cardholders download the EntraPass go Pass app to a mobile device and then accept a credential invitation from the system administrator. Once the invitation is accepted, end users can then gain access to doors simply by pressing the appropriate icon of the door in the app on the device. When the application is downloaded to an iOS mobile device paired with the watch, the “go Pass” icon will appear on the watch indicating to the user that the app is now ready to be used on their Apple Watch. A list of the end user’s favorite doors will appear once the app is opened and the user can simply tap on the appropriate door to gain entry. All user activities are recorded on the EntraPass server for the system administrator.

The app communicates directly with the access control system’s server via Wi-Fi or cellular connection, allowing organizations to leverage their existing card reader infrastructure for added cost-savings, while also simplifying credential verification for card holders.
