UniFi Access is an access control solution from Ubiquiti aimed at reimagining door access control. Ubiquiti manufactures and sells wireless data communication and wired products for enterprises and homes under multiple brand names.
The UniFi Access system consists of the following:
UniFi Access is a POE-powered door access control system that supports electric bolts and strikes, magnetic locks, motion sensors, push buttons, alarms, and other 12V access accessories. With the Unifi Access controller, you can also conveniently manage users, visitors, schedules, and access policies.
Ubiquiti’s access control solution currently has two different reader options: Lite, which is a slim NFC and Bluetooth reader; and Pro, which is around NFC and Bluetooth reader that also includes a high-definition camera and touchscreen functionality. At the time of this Ubiquiti access control review, the door access app is currently in development, so only NFC cards are supported for entry. In the future, UniFi Access will be able to unlock doors via intercom and mobile app.
Kisi's Cloud Based Physical Access Control System operates purely in the cloud, making it easy to set up and highly scalable as you expand.
Admins are able to easily establish granular controls with group, user and time-based restrictions -- just to name a few. End users have a range of unlocking options, including mobile apps available on Android and iOS, key cards and fobs.
Mobile credentials are an increasingly popular access method in workplaces around the world, as using a smartphone to unlock the door is more convenient (and often more secure) than key cards or fobs. Ubiquiti will offer both mobile and NFC key card credentials for their access control system, but at the moment only support NFC cards, which is a limitation.
Ubiquiti UniFi Access Control looks like a good option for small retail or office deployment, but maybe not for a large space at the moment due to limited scalability.
