Where you can use IMAporter Advanced
Family houses and apartment buildings
Set up your access control system
Location of IMAporter Advanced
IMAporter Advanced is suitable for doors, gates or garage doors, but also for any internal doors you want to secure. IMAporter Advanced system’s control unit allows you to connect up to two readers at once. It is therefore also suitable for securing access to internal doors from both sides.
Requirements for system installation:
- Electronic door locks
- Secure PC with Windows 7 or later versions
Installation of IMAporter Advanced usually requires some structural modifications. We recommend you to entrust the process to a local assembly company which we will train if necessary.
Management of IMAporter Advanced
Central management from PC
You can connect the Windows 7+ Admin PC to individual control units and readers via USB, LAN cables or mobile LTE networks. This allows you to manage all access points safely, conveniently and from a single place.
For convenient management, you will use our PC Admin application which you will receive together with your order on a USB flash drive or via a download link.
For easy addition of contactless smartcards or NFC tags, you will use a desktop ID reader/scanner. If you purchase a set of NFC tags or contactless smartcards together with our system, we may set up the identifier database for you.
IMAporter ID Cloud
Thanks to our system’s full integration with the ID Cloud platform, you will be able to easily create and send mobile keys to new user’s devices directly from the PC Admin application.
Distribution and configuration of mobile keys according to your preferences is also possible from the ID Cloud web interface. For both, you just need a login and a password which you will receive as a part of your order.
Mobile keys are sent to new users automatically after stating the required data, via a remotely encrypted channel by QR code, e-mail or SMS.
You can sort users into groups and restrict their access to the building based on a calendar and/or any specific requirements. This gives you better control over who enters the building and when.
Payment for devices/users
Usage of contactless smartcards and NFC tags in IMAporter Advanced is completely free of charge.
If you want to use your mobile device as an identifier, we charge a one-time mobile key payment. Mobile key credit is available in different volumes. The price of a mobile key with an unlimited validity is around 2€ (depending on volume ordered).
Opening doors with IMAporter Advanced
Opening by phone
- Install the Mobile Key user application (available for free on Google Play or App Store).
- The administrator will register the device and set up access rights
- You will receive a configuration SMS and an e-mail with a QR code that you will use to securely load your mobile key to your phone
- Tap the reader with your mobile phone, light up the display and the door will open
What if my phone is not working?
IMAporter access control systems use NFC and Bluetooth 4.0+ technologies based on the purchased reader configuration. When you first start the Mobile Key user application, your phone will inform you which of these technologies are supported. Usage of the MobileAccess function requires at least one type of these technologies. Furthermore, it is necessary that the phone is operational at the time of identification.
If your phone runs out of battery, you can always open the door with an RFID tag, a smart card or a physical key.
Opening with tags or cards
You will need a safe tag or smart card (MIFARE, DESFire, LEGIC) registered in the system. Hold the selected identifier near the reader and the door will open.
A big advantage of tags or cards is that they can never run out of battery. They can serve as a great backup solution or a solution for users who do not wish to use their mobile devices as means of gaining access to the building.
You will find complete manuals and videos on the Installation page. We recommend you to entrust any more complex installations to a local assembly company which we will train if necessary. We are sure, however, that you will be able to manage the system by yourself.
