Explore what 2N WaveKey can do for you!

Liberate your customers from unnecessary costs with 2N’s WaveKey mobile access control. This simple to deploy method could prove invaluable to your partners with the ability to remotely distribute mobile credentials in just a few clicks.

What’s more, it’s also a more secure option for office environments – people are less likely to share their mobile devices with others to gain access to secure areas, not to mention the unique range of secure algorithms which are able to identify whether a device is being used to gain access or if it’s at rest, or simply passing by.

The 2N Wavekey is quicker and easier to set up than fobs and can be done remotely through the 2N Access Commander*. Once created, simply pair the users’ mobile devices and any 2N Bluetooth Intercom module. With support for 4 different access modes:

  • Card mode
  • Tap in app mode
  • Touch mode
  • Motion mode

We’ve broken down the key features & benefits of this ground-breaking solution for you.

What is it?

Rigorously tested, 2N WaveKey is a unique technology that pairs users personal mobiles to the access control system of a building via a unique pairing PIN and the 2N Mobile Key app. Users can then walk to any access controlled door that they have permission to, which is set by the admin with 2N Access Commander, and enter into the door with one of 4 access modes.

1. Card Mode
Working on both Android and iOS devices, users can present their phone to the Bluetooth reader to gain access. Just like they would with a traditional card with no need to open the phone. The Card mode is best used in installations with a high flow of people passing by such as busy office locations and turnstiles.
2. Tap in the App Mode
Users are able to open doors by tapping a virtual button in the 2N mobile Key app. With users having to open their phone to access the app, this mode is considered to be more secure. Two-factor authentication can be added to include an additional level of security. Ideal for entrances to office buildings and secured areas as well as garages & parking barriers. Anywhere you want to keep secure.
3. Touch Mode
Users are able to simply touch the Bluetooth reader with their hand or elbow, if they are carrying something, without the need to take their phone out of their pocket or purse. If they have authorisation to enter, the door will open. This mode is best for apartment and office buildings but less suitable if there will be lots of people constantly moving or congregating nearby the door.
4. Motion Mode
A fully contactless way to open door. Requiring a camera based intercom which will trigger the authentication process when it detects movement. Camera behaviour setup will be required to make use of this mode – When, how and what you want it to react to. Making passage through doors smooth and effortless. While the convenience of this mode is fantastic, it is not advisable to deploy this mode in busy areas as there is a risk of the door being opened unintentionally by a third party.

Who can set permissions?

The 2N Access Commander Admin can set up accounts so that receptionists, security guards or administrators can generate the unique pairing PIN for staff and guests, as well as set the appropriate permissions for the users. All of which can be done in under 30 seconds.

How does WaveKey work?

Making use of the users’ mobile phone Bluetooth functionality, 2N WaveKey allows users to link to a buildings access control. Once the connected device is in range of a listening 2N intercom that has a Bluetooth module, users can make use of 4 different modes to enter a door, with varying levels of convenience of use and the associated level of security. Users are free to choose the best mode for each door as well as multiple modes for the same door for users to choose their preferred method. Users can rest assured that the smart algorithms used for the 2N WaveKey identify when the pair device that is being used for access is at rest, moving to, past or away from the area they are wanting to access to ensure full security of their restricted areas.

Important ProVu Shipping Price Update

As of 20th June we will be updating our shipping prices.

The good news is that on 90% of our outbound deliveries we have taken the commercial decision to reduce our shipping costs. These reductions will be on our most common services of standard next day delivery.

However, for that remaining 10%, we have had to increase our delivery charges. This includes non-standard shipping areas (non-mainland uk) e.g. Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland and Isle of Man.

The increases of our courier’s fuel surcharge were just too large and where we could, we have absorbed some of it, but the rest we have had to pass through. These price changes will come into effect on the 20th of June.

What’s new with 3CX

Being at the forefront of PBX systems and integrated communications, 3CX have had to innovate and grow to meet the demands of users as well as the ever-changing technology landscape. With web, desktop and mobile clients it is now easier than ever to connect supported devices to an all-in-one communication system.

Some of the latest updates to 3CX

In the most recent version 18 update, 3CX have improved on the system with some quality-of-life updates as well as some brand new features.

IOS App Official Release: Fast Chat ResponseFast Chat Response allows users to respond quickly to chat messages without unlocking their devices. By long pressing the chat notification and then being prompted to either ‘reply’ or ‘mark as read’.

What’s more, in accordance with the Ray Baum Act & Kari’s Law devices are required to be able to direct dial local emergency numbers without having to add a prefix or access code. The 3CX app can recognise emergency numbers and “offloads” the call to the native GSM dialer instead.

Stream 3CX Video Conferences on YoutubeVersion 18 of 3CX has been updated to integrate with YouTube. Allowing users to present video conferences LIVE via YouTube as well as stream public YouTube content directly within a meeting. This feature requires an enterprise edition license.
Improved filtering on 3CX VC WordPress pluginThe 3CX Video Conference WordPress plugin has been updated to make publish 3CX webinar and registering customers easier. Allowing users to filter by published extension numbers, Keyword in webinar subject as well as set number of days in the future.

Based on the 3CX VC Rest API, users can customise the experience to fit individual needs and requirements.

New Call Flow DesignerAudio files that are generated through text to speech are now cached in the 3CX server. Meaning that users will save money as well as response time when playing the same text over and over. 3CX first checks for local WAV files for the same voice & text. If available the WAV file will be played, otherwise the text to speech operation will be triggered, adding the result to the cache.
Easily Parse CSV TextWith a new CSV Parser, users can easily convert CSV files into a table. Giving users an easier way to collect information like numbers or values from specific rows and columns. Making callflow validation, such as user ID and PIN numbers, that much quicker if the information is in a CSV file. What’s more, this can all be done without any C# scripting.
