Touchless Access

Since the emergence of the world-renowned pandemic, COVID-19, the need for health and safety precautions implementations has increased. Thus, society and industries have realized the need to do more to lessen the infection rate, and as expected, technology has risen to save the day.

Several technologies have been put into place to this end. Public touchpoints, such as railings and door handles, are used by several individuals. In enclosed places like offices, the community transmission risk is very high. The presently used access control procedures are managed with great carefulness and inspection for evident reasons.

The first method of reducing community transmission is the several types of touchless access control technology. It eliminates the need to touch the handle after the last person has used the door. A touchless button can be installed to open the door. A protected iris scanner can be used in place of a physical fingerprint scanner as a means of identification. Instead of using a light switch, a simple timed movement sensor can be used.

The touchless access control options are growing every day. The list is broad and restricted only by how they are being utilized. These simple technologies are affordable, real, and dependable types of touchless access. Touchless access is such that employees and guests do not need to come into contact with them to gain entrance into the premises.

Face recognition, hand wave, or mobile access using apps, such as the Geokey mobile access app, can be used to gain access into the building. Touchless access control systems use smart touchless security scanners and card readers that grant access by easily recognizing and scanning the numbers coded on the access cards. Also, they grant access to employees who use their Bluetooth connection for the touchless security company app on their smartphones to gain mobile access.

This Geokey mobile access grants them the ability to unlock from anywhere they are within the premises. The face recognition and the hand waving systems are location-based locks as you have to be in front of them to gain access. They are not systems that can be unlocked from anywhere. Internal security systems can be linked up with the face recognition system to enable employee tracking thus making workplace activities such as time clocking and attendance keeping easier.

The hand waving system is linked to your smartphone through Bluetooth low energy, although it is not a must that your smartphone is held in your hand. You just have it on you as your smartphone serves as your mobile key.

Apart from being used for employee tracking, the Geokey data analytics help you monitor your guests. This will aid corporate intruders and spy identification. Video surveillance systems can be integrated into these systems for employee tracking to ensure only permitted people are on the premises, thus increasing the security level in the office. Door controllers can also be used to limit the access of unwanted people into the premises.

Using the Geokey online portal, the management can manage the access of employee. Geokey is not a one-size-fits-all security solution type. We customize security solution to fit your security needs. Contact us today to improve your business security level.


For decades we have watched access control make its evolution into the new age. In the 90’s, it was the transition from standard lock and key to key fobs. But time has once again changed the game for small business owners by a more evident technology: Our mobile phones.

We all have met a small business owner. They are typically driven and hardworking people that wear a lot of hats. They love what they do because they get to be their own boss, but the downside is that they are managing multiple facets of their company simultaneously. With the capabilities of mobile access control, it has given small business owners a new grasp on the security of one of their most prized possessions, which is their business.

Why Mobile Access Control?

The inception of Geokey as a commercial mobile access solution started from the perspective of a small business as a 24/7 fitness facility. We were using key fobs at the time, which worked but still left problems on the table. With the solution of Geokey, those problems have been eliminated and have enhanced the experience of small business owners everywhere.

1. No More Transferring Access

Safety is a primary concern for any business owner. That includes protecting cash, intellectual property, assets, employees, etc. The issue with fobs and keys is the ease of being transferable between one another.

People do not transfer their mobile phones to one another. Furthermore, Geokey has a feature that will not allow users to transfer their login information from one user to another. We do that by restricting the back-and-forth transfer of login information.

Security is our primary focus and a lack of transferring access even goes for lost phones. Geokey support is just a moment away that can remove access from devices and protect businesses from threatening solicitors.

2. Gain More Time by Sending Mobile Keys

As we stated earlier, a business owner wears many hats which leaves less time for other projects or revenue generating tasks. Mobile access control gives business owners the opportunity to gain that back by sending Geokeys to users (instead of handing keys or fobs off in person) and being able to unlock their business doors from anywhere. That means no more waking up in the middle of the night to drive to your facility.

3. Gain Analytics and Tracking Of Your Users

Have you ever wanted to see who is in your building and for how long in real time? With mobile access control you now have that opportunity. Mobile Access solutions come with a full data management software program that gives you full data analytics of your facility. Geokey takes that one step further. With our proprietary solution, you can also track duration. When your users enter and leave the geofence of your business, Geokey will let you know.

4. Affordable Solution

The biggest question we get is if it’s affordable and to that question, the answer is ‘Yes’. Our goal at Geokey is to provide a full feature and high security solution at a low monthly cost. By saving time for our business owners with custom management solutions, Geokey is the most economical solution.

Take a Step Through the Door of the Future

There is an endless amount of things to keep to track of, and physical keys should no longer be one of them. As small as keys are, they play a large role in everyone’s life, and having too many can be a hassle. Just like many other problems of old, a new technology is rising and changing how security works for small businesses. Geokey, a company that turns phones into convenient and secure mobile keys, provides a new method and solution to the past system of security.

Instead of traditional metal keys and modern fobs, Geokey uses data analytics to enhance digital security. This program does not use Bluetooth, so Geokey can track anyone who is entering, exiting, or staying in the facility. This program also makes it possible to view the amount of time a user spends in a set Geofence. Admins are thus informed when someone enters or leaves the area. Geokey gives administrators the ability to know who is in their building at all times. This information is not only made easily accessible through Geokey, but also keeps administrators up to date on the happenings of the facility and diminishes the risk of any surprises.

Geokey’s digital security system provides more safety when compared to physical keys. Rather than having to keep track of a small metal key, Geokey allows everything to be accessible through a device. The set-up process is also simple and trouble-free. To set up a new user, an administrator simply enters this individual’s email and personal information. Credentials are then automatically generated for the user. Once finished, the new user can subsequently use these credentials to log-in to the app, giving them access to its facilities. The administrator also has the ability to set a number of parameters through the app. For example, a specific user’s parameters can be adjusted, limiting days and times they can enter. The access to facilities can also be made temporary, such that an individual may only need access for a short amount of time.

Geokey also lessens the need for travel in an individual’s day-to-day life. With a digital security system, administrators no longer have to be on site to unlock doors or distribute keys. Not only can new users be added from anywhere, but also facility doors can be unlocked from the comfort of one’s own home. This reduces the necessity of being in-person each time an employee, or otherwise, needs access to the facility. This is especially useful in light of COVID-19; unnecessary in person contact is reduced, and more people have the ability to work from home.

There are numerous situations in which an individual’s access to the facility may need to be revoked. Keeping track of and obtaining this individual’s physical keys can prove to be difficult in some cases. Geokey offers a better solution to this. Mobile keys can be revoked as easily as they can be given out: access can be revoked by the press of a button, rather than struggling to get a key back.

Geokey is the safe option for secure doors. Mobile keys can be distributed with ease. The location and period of time an individual is in the facility is tracked and easily accessible. Every individual’s access can be controlled down to the day and time. Administrators can process keys and unlock doors from anywhere. With Geokey, the hassle of physical keys is non-existent.
