Trusted IDs Gain Acceptance in Smart Building Environment

A majority of survey respondents believe identities can be connected across multiple systems and devices through a single ID card or mobile phone.

As smart buildings increasingly pop up on the corporate landscape, the need to connect these intelligent structures to workers will increasingly grow, according to a survey released today by IFSEC Global.

According to the survey, 85% of survey respondents know that identities can be connected to various systems and devices, while more than 60% feel having all their identities on one ID card or mobile device will give them operational efficiencies.

"The study reveals how trusted IDs offer a viable alternative for achieving a connected building at lower cost, better ROI and improved user experience – all by providing systems with knowledge of identities and their authorizations for access to elevators, parking garages, vending machines, printers and other systems," says Ashish Malpani, product marketing director with HID Global, which sponsored the survey.

The survey found that 45% of respondents believe asset tracking will be one of the likely systems to be added to smart buildings in the future, while 46% think multi-factor authentication will make the list.
