BALTECH Mobile ID beta admin guide
With BALTECH Mobile ID, employees can use their smartphones, as an alternative to their physical ID cards, to open doors or use similar card-reading applications.
This documentation is for administrators who set up and manage the solution for a specific project.
BALTECH Mobile ID is typically used for access control, but you can also use it for any other application that is based on reading a certain number from a card, e.g. time & attendance or login. The setup always works the same.
