ZKTime is a specialized app for users of the ZKTime products family, enabling them to use their mobile phone as identification token.
The ZKTime app uses a combination of NFC (Near Field Communication) and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technologies supporting all mobile devices equipped with any of these technologies and running Android 4.4.x and newer.
The ZKTime is a family of Mobile Access readers and Access Control Systems combining RFID, NFC and BLE identification technologies and support for Android and iOS devices. The ZKTime is a scalable solution fitting the needs large office and industrial buildings as well as being able to manage single door access to garage or family house.
Optional ZKTime ID Management platform enables users and system admins to manage mobile identifiers centrally over a cloud-based management system and distribute them automatically over SMS, QR code or email.
With ZKTime, users are able to use their mobile phone as a personal identifier the same and easy way as they are used to do with contactless cards. The purpose of the app is not cloning RFID current cards, but to bring added value by issuing a secure mobile identifier.
The identification process is designed to be as simple as possible. For NFC devices it is sufficient to light up the display and tap the ZKTime reader. There is not even a need to unlock the display.
For BLE devices can the user or site admin design the identification process himself setting the predefined maximum range and steps to follow to identify. BLE identification can be as easy as lighting up the display when in range of the reader (up to 10m) or secured by requiring additional PIN verification when very close to the reader (range can be limited up to 5cm). Or many other security level options in between.
The integral part of the system is a ZKTime HW (reader or ACS).
