|Let's find out the common concerns in deploying TimeTec BLE-2.|
|1.||There are residents who don’t own a smartphone like the elderly or school kids. How would the system handle these groups?
Don’t worry. We will issue a key fob for those who do not own a smartphone. A key fob is basically a remote control button that acts like a card credential to unlock the doors.
|2.||Would it be a problem if there is no network coverage within the vicinity?
Not at all because TimeTec BLE-2 Smart Door offers Offline Mode access so long as the Bluetooth connection is turned on.
|3.||Would I be denied access if my smartphone ran out of battery or I lost my smartphone?
Yes. This is a security concern and you wouldn’t want a person without a legit credential to enter your community. Treat this incident like how you would normally if you lost your keys or access cards. If you have a family member who lives with you, they might be able to help you with your access before you can settle your smartphone problem.
