What is the IMAporter?

IMAporter solutions are designed to bring mobile identification into all areas of your everyday life

The IMAporter comes in the form of a universal NFC and Bluetooth reader ready for an easy integration with third-party systems. Upgrading complex corporate ID solutions to enable Mobile Access is as easy as it gets.

Small households love the IMAporter Mobile solution since it is fully managed from a mobile device, whereas Airbnb flat owners use the IMAporter Basic to send mobile keys to their guests over the air – late night arrivals are no longer a concern.

Combining RFID, NFC and Bluetooth Smart identification technologies in one device makes it possible to use many different identifiers at the same time.

How does IMAporter work?

Can you just imagine lighting up the display on your personal mobile device to open the door? The IMAporter is a ground-breaking solution to make this possible.

The identification process itself was simplified to its minimum while maintaining a high level of security. There is no app that needs to be run, no screen lock that needs to be unlocked. Identification is fast and easy as the user only needs to light up the display and tap the reader. The system automatically chooses the optimal technology to be used to complete the process.

On top of that, small household owners, as well as large estate admins, can configure the system centrally – e.g. adjust the security levels, control the maximum Bluetooth distance and much more. Using the IMAporter ID Management Platform, admins can easily assign mobile keys to users over the air.

Supporting NFC and Bluetooth technologies, the IMAporter can be used on an Android device as well as on iOS devices. Additional security can be reached by requiring a PIN code to enter specific doors (e.g. server rooms).

The IMAporter is developed in many variants, starting with a universal Mobile Access Reader designed for simple integration into third-party systems and ending with complex Access Control solutions.

Used technologies

All IMAporter systems are using the latest identification technologies. Apart from the standard and well-known RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) cards and tags, they are equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth Smart) technologies that are widely implemented in modern mobile devices.

The NFC technology is designed for secure identification over a short distance (usually up to 5cm / 2inches). We call this technology “tap-based”, as users often have to tap the reader with their device. All IMAporter systems support user identification using NFC. Unlike with other similar systems, there is no need to open any app, the user only has to light up the screen and tap the reader. The IMAporter Mobile and Basic ACS solutions also utilize NFC for user rights management.

BLE technology is becoming more and more common on all smart devices. It is a low-power wireless communication derived from Bluetooth. All IMAporter systems support BLE as an optional feature, thus enabling user identification over up to 10m distance. Unlike NFC that is limited to Android devices, BLE can be used with both Android and iOS devices. On top of that, every user or system admin is able to configure the communication distance from tap-based 5cm to long-range 10m. Our implementation uses secure user authorization methods and configurable identification process from a simple screen light-up identification to the secure in-app and PIN-confirmed identification.
