Openpath is a smart security system for businesses and residences that lets people use their smartphone instead of keycards to instantly open doors. This is a far more secure and convenient alternative to conventional keys or keycards. Business owners can manage access to every meeting room or secure a facility using the Cloud-based software and app. The user experience is simple: a single dot of light indicates a closed entryway, but when a verified smartphone is held above the reader the dot expands into a ring, symbolizing an open entrance. Our app design uses bold graphics and a logical flow of information. This keyless entry ecosystem is the most intuitive, secure, convenient and stylish ever integrated into the modern workspace.
