Openpath Solves the Mobile User Experience: 94% of Openpath Access Users Choose Mobile over a Keycard to Access Their Office

The hottest company in mobile access control drives unprecedented
mobile adoption with the release of its sleek Mullion Smart Reader,
designed to enable secure mobile access for any office.

LAS VEGAS & LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#openpathOpenpath,
a company on a mission to bring frictionless access and better security
to our workplaces, today revealed that 94% of its users now use their
smartphone over a keycard to enter the office, an enviable
accomplishment in an industry with shockingly low mobile adoption rates.
Recognizing a general lack of mobile adoption in the access control
industry, Openpath today launched the Mullion
Smart Reader
to fill out its portfolio of access control readers.
The sleek, versatile and compact design of the Mullion Smart Reader
enables Openpath to further provide the most convenient form of mobile
entry – hands-free, keyless, mobile access – to businesses everywhere.


“Employees want convenience; they don’t want to go through a bunch of
steps to get into their office in the morning. With the majority of our
users agreeing that the simplest way to unlock their office door is to
stand in front of it, we developed the hardware and software to deliver
that experience to any office setting,” said Alex Kazerani, Openpath’s
co-founder and CEO. “By achieving 94% mobile adoption over traditional
access credentials, we have cracked the code to delivering the user
experience employees want with the elegant, easy-to-install hardware
businesses need.”

Openpath user analytics show that the majority of users have not only
shifted to using their mobile phone for access, but also prefer to leave
their smartphone in their bag or pocket to enter the office. With
Openpath’s Touch
access feature, employees get the convenience of an automatic door with
the security of an encrypted, credential-based access system. Faster and
more convenient than opening an app or using a key or fob, Openpath
Touch automatically recognizes a user’s smartphone as he/she approaches,
even if it’s in a purse or pocket, and allows the user to enter with
only a wave of their hand or a touch of the reader.

With the new Mullion Smart Reader, it is easier than ever for companies
to install Openpath in the most convenient spot to enable hands-free
entry with Touch. Designed to fit anywhere and bring a modern look and
feel to locations that require a smaller reader form factor, the Mullion
Reader can mount on any wall or door frame and leverage existing reader
wiring. Once installed, Openpath’s technology uses Bluetooth and motion
detection to authenticate the user and unlock the door. Like all
Openpath Smart Readers, this new model continues to support keycards and
fobs to ensure flexible options for those who want to offer various
credential options.

James Segil, co-founder and President of Openpath, said: “To truly
enable convenient, elegant, smart mobile access for all, we need to make
it more accessible. With the introduction of this Mullion form-factor to
our existing Smart Reader line-up, we are able to provide the many
design and deployment options necessary to meet the demands of any
building configuration. With the Mullion Smart Reader, we ensure that
any office can utilize our technology in a way that is both practical
and affordable while keeping security, aesthetic and ease of use a top
priority.”

Openpath will be displaying its new Mullion Smart Reader and
demonstrating its Touch access feature at GSX
September 25 – 27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #1669.
