Mobile Unlock with GeoFencing

Prevent users from unlocking doors remotely with Mobile Unlock

Updated this week

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.

NOTE: A user will need to be an Access Admin to enable Mobile Geofencing.

Setting up GeoFencing

  1. From All Products, select Access

  2. Navigate to Access Settings on the left tab

  3. Toggle on Mobile GeoFencing

  4. Optional: The default unlock distance is set to 500m. You can set the geofence unlock distance to be between 1 and 10,000m

Note: The geofence distance is based on the latitude and longitude of your phone's GPS location and the latitude and longitude of the address of the building that your access controller is assigned not on the distance from your phone to the door you are unlocking.

We recommend setting geofencing to 500m for optimal performance.
