Civic Announces Partnership with Johnson Controls

Civic app will teams up with Johnson Controls to Seamlessly Authenticate Registered Visitors. 

Civic, the global digital identity leader announced a partnership with Johnson Controls, an industry leader with customers in over 150 countries. Civic’s Secure ID Platform (SIP) will integrate with Johnson Controls C-CURE 9000 Security and Event Management Systems to provide secure visitor management with greater data privacy and protection.

Verifying the Identity

This partnership will enable building visitors to verify their identity using the Civic App, offering properties secured by C-CURE 9000 a more convenient, more secure solution for processing visitors at the point of reception. Visitor identity verification with the Civic App will initially be deployed in three New York locations, with an expected volume of over 20,000 visitors per month. Visitors typically have to sign in with the receptionist and provide identity information, usually a physical ID and contact information, to check-in for their visit and receive temporary access to the building. By integrating Civic for authentication, when visitors walk into a building, they will be able to scan a QR code on the C-CURE 9000 check-in kiosk with their Civic App without needing to dig out a physical ID or enter personal information into a form.

Vinny Lingham, Civic Co-founder and CEO said, “Today, we all carry various items to identify ourselves, from government-issued IDs to fobs that grant us building access. By integrating the Civic App, anyone who needs to visit a C-CURE 9000 secured building will have the opportunity to identify themselves with their Civic App.  Civic enables building guests to prove who they are with a mobile device, rather than requiring them to show an ID document, sign a visitor logbook, and stand in line to check-in and out of a facility. We’re looking forward to working with Johnson Controls to bring blockchain-powered identity verification to enable secure access management to guests across the U.S.”
