This mobile app service enables easier building navigation and touchless access control

by Brianna Crandall — June 4, 2021 — LenelS2 recently introduced its Indoor Location subscription-based service for businesses and other organizations using LenelS2’s BlueDiamond mobile app version 2.1.8 for smartphones. This new premium mobile app service complements LenelS2’s touchless access solutions by providing users with the ability to quickly pull up a map to determine current location within a building, search for points of interest, use turn-by-turn directions for efficient navigation, and unlock doors directly from a building map.

The service is an advanced solution in Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program. LenelS2, a global provider of advanced security systems and services, is a part of Carrier Global Corporation, a global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions.

Ernie Chan, general manager, BlueDiamond and Value-Added Services, LenelS2, stated:

Our new BlueDiamond Indoor Location service raises the bar for mobile credential app capabilities. BlueDiamond mobile credential holders can confidently find their way within buildings, enabling easier, more efficient building navigation. This new capability expands the ways credentialed users experience touchless access control, including unlocking doors in their path.

For customers utilizing the LenelS2 OnGuard or NetBox access control security systems, the Indoor Location service provides app users with convenient facility-wide navigation. From corporate campuses to entertainment venues, hospitals, convention centers and more, users can quickly get directions by pulling up a map from their smartphone to show their current location and search for points of interest such as meeting rooms, exits and more.

In combination with BlueDiamond readers, users can also unlock doors using voice commands or other app features for an enhanced touchless access experience.

The Indoor Location service is hardware-agnostic, allowing it to work with various technologies including wi-fi, Bluetooth Low Energy and virtual beacons. Organizations can digitize facility maps and define dynamic points of interest. The beacons deployed throughout the facility enable the app to triangulate the smartphone’s location for display on the map.

The Indoor Location service joins the recently announced Contact Notification service as part of BlueDiamond mobile app version 2.1.8, which also includes a variety of non-subscription-based updates to improve the access control and user experience.
