New app puts campus cards in smart phones

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Mar 22, 2013  ||   , ,

CBORD released CBORD Mobile ID, a smart phone app that puts a campus card into the handset. Students can then use their phones for access, vending, attendance and other secure transactions on campus.

CBORD Mobile ID works with both iOS and Android systems. Students can download the app through Apple’s App Store or Google Play. With the app, their phone becomes their card, and they can use it by selecting or entering the location for their desired transaction or access point and then swiping the card icon on the phone to complete the transaction.

The system works with Squadron online locks from HID, Ingersoll Rand and CBORD, as well as keypad-enabled Assa Abloy IP Series locks by entering a one-time use code at the lock.

The app approves transactions after confirming through location services that the user is within a certain distance of the terminal in question. If a phone is lost or stolen, the user can report it like they would a lost card, which will disable to CBORD app running on the phone.

CBORD Mobile ID is available to schools that use CBORD’s CS Gold campus card system.
