Nedap unveils new MACE platform for smartphone access control at IFSEC 2018

Nedap has unveiled their MACE platform, which can be used to send and revoke virtual access control cards to smartphones in any security or parking application.

The announced expansion and enhancement of the mobile access control platform offers unlimited potential for integration and effective use.

The number of companies offering mobile access control is increasing. A notable feature of Nedap’s the MACE  mobile access control, is that the platform aims to match the clients’ demands and enable integration into any access control or parking management system.


  • The new MACE App SDK that is used to develop a MACE compatible app with custom look and feel and potential integration with client specific functionality.
  • The MACE REST API that is used to exchange commands between the cloud based MACE Admin Portal and third party access control systems. Access control administrators now can send and revoke virtual access cards to their users from within the application that they are used to.
  • The MACE Admin Portal that offers additional possibilities to automate the process of allocating and revoking virtual cards and the communication related to that.
  • The newest version of the MACE Apps for Google Android phones and Apple iPhones that offer enhanced BLE performance and additional security features.

“It’s easy for administrators to distribute and revoke those virtual cards and for users to gain access.” Maarten Mijwaart, General Manager, Nedap Identification Systems.

“With MACE, it is very easy for administrators to distribute and revoke those virtual cards and for users it is very easy to gain access. This functionality is improved even further with additional features related to credential management and communication with users,” says Maarten Mijwaart, General Manager of Nedap Identification Systems.

“In addition, clients now can build the functionality into their own access control system and they can create their own custom apps. It is our belief that these new features make MACE the platform of choice for any organization that is looking for a solution to empower its users with the ability to use the smartphone as a key.”

Through the introduction of the MACE platform, Nedap responds to the global shift of smartphone credentials replacing physical cards. MACE can be used in combination with any access control system or any other system that requires the swift identification of people, such as building or parking management systems.
