Nedap - Global leader in vehicle & people access solutions


To enable hands-free people identification we support two platforms.



Nedap’s mobile access control platform, MACE, enables the use of smartphones in any access control application. MACE consists of smartphone apps, a cloud based server to administer and distribute virtual access credentials and mobile access readers that are able to read multiple technologies, including NFC, Bluetooth, smart cards, proximity cards and QR-codes.

MACE is specifically designed to deliver secure and convenient mobile access in building access control applications, parking management systems and event ticketing systems.

It is Nedap’s mission to positively enhance the customer journey in access control. Our product lines support longer read ranges so users can keep going. But they can also support hands-free use of RFID tags. With the introduction of Nedap MACE we even removed the physical dimension of card distribution. All our readers and platforms are built to easily integrate with any third party access control systems.
