For Immediate Release
The First Access Control System to Work with All Bluetooth Classic or Bluetooth Smart Devices
Lancaster, Pennsylvania – March 16, 2015 — ECKey (www.ECKey.com), the market leader in Smartphone Bluetooth readers and access control systems, has announced the release of the VP1 Dual Mode Reader.
ECKey announced the launch of their VP1 “Dual Mode” Reader which is a complete electronic access control system that eliminates the hassle and expense of panels, cards, readers, software and networks. It works with VIZpin, their cloud based ACaaS (Access Control as a Service), that lets you send, revoke and monitor electronic keys anytime from anywhere. The VP1 uses long-range Bluetooth so you can mount it in a secure area, away from weather and vandals or out-of-sight for architecturally and historically sensitive installations.
Other Bluetooth readers only support Bluetooth Smart (aka Bluetooth Low Energy) devices and may only work with the latest iPhones. ECKey’s VP1 reader works with ALL Bluetooth Classic or Bluetooth LE devices including flip phones, Blackberry® and Windows®, Android® and iPhones® solving your access needs for 99% of the market; it even works with tablets and PCs. “We have always focused on commercial applications and learned early on that you can’t predict what type of device your employees, visitors, contractors or vendors have. Since 99%+ of the installed devices today have either Bluetooth Classic or SMART, the VP1 has you covered” offered Paul Bodell, President and CEO of ECKey.
The VIZpin Smart app for iPhone is now available on iTunes or on Google Play for Android devices.
ECKey designs, manufactures and markets a complete line of security access control systems and accessories that use your phone’s unique Bluetooth signal to grant secure and convenient access. Our VIZpin service lets you send electronic keys to visitors through an easy-to-use web portal. ECKey is privately held and based in Lancaster, PA. All ECKey products are made in the USA.
