The smartphones must at least be loaded with iOS 9.0 or Android version 5.0 and above, and contain Bluetooth 4.0 feature and above.
The i-TimeTec App is the App that you need to access TimeTec Smart Turnstile. However, it doesn’t mean that when you have the App, you are granted the permission to enter from any point you wish. You can only access the turnstiles that are authorized to enter and to know which turnstiles you can access, you need to contact the admin of your office.
Definitely. The Admin can configure daily, weekly or one time pass to restrict your access at turnstiles. You need to know your access time to avoid any inconvenience.
You’ll be fine because i-TimeTec App is designed to function via Bluetooth communication, hence, no Internet connectivity is not a problem.
Yes. Just imagine when you have been issued an access card for turnstile; that same mechanism applies when you are granted access on a pre-approved basis and it makes no difference in this scenario. The only distinction is that the RFID card is replaced by a smartphone as your credential. All access log activities will be uploaded to the system once the smartphone is back online, so your data will be safe and sound.
Not possible. TimeTec Smart Turnstile is a passive panel based on the instructions given by i-TimeTecApp and there is a real time clock built into the board. When visitors use the App to make a request to access TimeTec Smart Turnstile, the App will send the mobile phone’s date-time as well. Hence, TimeTec Smart Turnstile panel will only grant access if the mobile phone’s date-time is the same as the information on the panel.
Cards can easily be lost, stolen or forgotten because it has no other functions except to open doors or gates; but a smartphone is functional and personal as well as being an important part of modern lifestyle. Besides, a smartphone contains a lot of power and functions which includes controlling the TimeTec Smart Turnstile.
The Admin is responsible to disable or remove the staff’s smartphone access from the list, therefore, the accessibility depends on the Admin.
We suggest issuing a BLE or RFID card as a backup to cater for such situations as well as pre-setting some cards to access the designated TimeTec Smart Turnstiles.
The use of i-TimeTec App would be most convenient because by pre-registering, visitors will receive a QR code to be scanned at the guardhouse, as well as a pre-approved access code to access the building via TimeTec Smart Turnstile. However, it all depend on the policy of your company on visitors. If this is not allowed, all visitors must register at the guard post before they are allowed entry into the office compound.
The BLE smart cards or RFID cards can be issued and used as backups.
The person who lost a BLE card or RFID card shall report to the management instantly to remove the card from the system and block access from any unauthorized person. This is solely the responsibility of the owner.
