Gallagher Security Announces Employee Badge Access via Apple Wallet

Gallagher Security, a security manufacturer, announced the support for employee badges in Apple Wallet is now available for Gallagher customers in the U.S. with the release of Gallagher Command Centre v9.10.

Employee badge in Apple Wallet is fully integrated with Gallagher Command Centre, making it easy for customers to issue and manage access credentials for their employees with in-app provisioning via Gallagher’s Mobile Connect app, the company says.

Once an employee badge has been added to Apple Wallet, users can hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near an NFC-enabled reader to securely unlock office doors — eliminating the need to open an app or present a traditional, plastic access card. If an iPhone needs to be charged, employees can still use their device to access their office or amenity areas with Power Reserve.

“As we embrace the evolving needs of our customers, we constantly look for ways to expand the capabilities of our existing credentials and add support for new ones.” says Gallagher Security Chief Product Officer, Meredith Palmer. “Users of security solutions increasingly expect their access experience to be seamless, leveraging native technologies built into the devices that they use every day. Support for employee badges in Apple Wallet enables an easy, secure, and private access experience for users of iPhone and Apple Watch.”

Employees can add their employee badge to Apple Wallet after an initial set-up and provisioning through Gallagher’s Mobile Connect app. Once added, the badge will give them access to enter their office building, office space, and shared amenity spaces. Unlike physical cards, there is no waiting time for gaining building credentials and access for new employees.

Employee badges in Apple Wallet take full advantage of the privacy and security features built into the iPhone and Apple Watch. They are stored on the device, which means Apple doesn’t see the places your employees access, so data is private and secure. If their iPhone or Apple Watch is misplaced, the device owner can promptly use the Find My app to lock the device and help locate it.

Employee badges in Apple Wallet are available for approved Gallagher customers in the United States, with global availability to be announced soon. Employee badges in Apple Wallet have also been made available for the 700 staff at Gallagher headquarters in Hamilton, New Zealand, and will be rolled out across Gallagher’s global offices.
