How to: Mobile Access with HID

What is HID?

HID is a mobile access solution that works just like a physical access card except using your mobile phone and the Lane app.

Why use Mobile Access?

Mobile access replaces access cards and key fobs by transforming your mobile device into a digital wallet that can store multiple access credentials and open doors by tapping or bringing your phone near an access reader. 

That means no longer needing to touch passcards, readers or common area surfaces in order to walk through lobby turnstiles or to open building doors.

  • The HID app will work even if the Lane app is running in the background. 
  • The HID configuration settings includes a Twist and Go option where you hold your mobile phone up and make a twisting motion to activate mobile access and open the door.
