Avigilon Alta supports a wide range of contactless access methods and keyless credentials for flexible and secure entry for every user and every door.

Hands-free mobile access

Avigilon Alta’s cloud-based mobile credentials enable a 100% touchless entry experience, backed by patented Triple Unlock technology for 99.9% unlock reliability.

  • Wave to Unlock

    Simply wave your hand in front of the reader while your phone is on you to unlock the door — no contact necessary.

  • Bluetooth recognition

    Avigilon readers use a combination of Bluetooth and motion detection to instantly recognize and authenticate mobile credentials.

  • Fast and reliable

    The sub-second unlock is perfect for lobbies or primary entrances with high traffic, and any area that prioritizes convenience.

Encrypted key cards and fobs

For users who require a physical badge, Avigilon offers the same level of security and convenience.

  • Secure encrypted cards

    DESFire EV3 128-bit AES cryptographic cards with digitally signed identifiers make it extremely difficult to clone or copy cards.

  • Backward compatible

    Popular MIFARE RFID and proximity cards are also supported when running hybrid mode with a legacy card system.

  • Custom and on-demand badge printing

    Design custom ID badges with the easy-to-use Badge Template creator, then print on-demand using your own badge printer.

Secure PIN code credentials

The Avigilon Smart Keypad Reader enables PIN-based entry for credentialed users and visitors, with the ability to adjust and send PIN codes from anywhere and at any time.

  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA)

    Layer security using any combination of credentials and access methods, such as key cards and PIN codes.

  • Durable, secure keypad design

    Capacitive touch keypad reduces wear-and-tear, with static LED backlight and easy-to-clean surface to prevent snooping.

  • PIN-activated lockdown

    Activate and revert Avigilon Alta Lockdown plans onsite using a unique PIN.

Digital Guest Pass credentials

Simplify access control credential management for visitors with Avigilon Alta digital Guest Passes. Send a Guest Access Link to one-time visitors from wherever you are via email, text or messaging app.

  • Temporary access

    Authorized users can grant limited entry privileges to guests or service providers as needed.

  • Customizable for every guest

    Share access credentials to one or more entries, and limit when and how long guests will have access.

  • No app needed

    Visitors can simply click the link and access entries via a web browser — no app install required.
