Mobile unlock is an extremely convenient feature for users, allowing them to use the Verkada Pass mobile app to unlock doors. By default, users with Mobile Unlock privileges can unlock doors remotely from anywhere. Depending on your organizational needs, you can also prevent mobile unlocks with Geofencing.
Setting up GeoFencing
- Select the Admin tab (Requires Access Admin rights)
- Select Settings
- Toggle on Mobile GeoFencing
- Optional: The default unlock distance is set to 500m. You can change this distance to be between 1m and 10,000m.
Once you have enabled mobile GeoFencing here are the steps that each user needs to take for it to work on the Verkada Pass mobile app.
If you're enabling GeoFencing after users have already logged in and started using the Verkada Pass app, you'll need to take these steps on the user's device to get GeoFencing enforcement working.
- Close out the app entirely on your mobile device
- Relaunch the app
NOTE: It can take up to 1 minute for the geofence to go into full effect once enabled.
