Initial Release for Internal Use. 


With NineSmart IoT controller connected to door locks and Smart Access app, the solution enables personnel access specific areas or premises by scanning QR code.

Staff can clock in and generate QR code with time setting for visitors by using Smart Access app. By granting permitted QR code, visitors can access specific entrances without support from onsite guards, which can save time for verifications.

Apart from app, staff admin is allowed to access the web-based admin panel to generate QR code with time limits, manage access and attendance records, as well as exporting reports.

Smart Access allows integration with existing systems, databases and hardware such as NFC card readers, which is suitable for various environments and operating modes.


1. Data Encryption/ Automatic Deletion

Data will be encrypted and set to be deleted automatically if a mobile device cannot be detected or lost so as to prevent possible data leakage.

2. Fixed/ Mobile Scanner

QR code scanner can be either installed on a wall or a portable device based on actual requirements.

3. Highlight Abnormal Records

Automatic detection of abnormal access records helps monitor the situation and protect safety of staff and assets.

4. Self-service Access

Regardless of whether there is a security guard on duty, visitors can enjoy free access to specific areas with permitted QR codes.

5. Temporary Entry Permit

Temporary staff or visitors can use the limited time QR Code to enter without installing a mobile app.
