Liberty Access Technologies will use HID Global secure access technologies to enable the use of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS).
Santa Barbara, CA – May 4, 2020 — Today Liberty Access Technologies (Liberty) announces an effort to add electric vehicle charging stations to the list of critical assets that are secured by HID Global’s trusted identity technologies. The news comes as an increasing number of enterprise
commercial and residential properties add EV chargers to provide employees and tenants with convenient charging stations that accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, a critical component in the fight to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
“As electric vehicles continue their rapid growth in popularity, organizations that are building out the EV charging infrastructure will be confronted with the need to support secure and convenient access to EV chargers,” said Gary Oberman, Vice President Americas Sales of
Extended Access Technologies with HID Global. “Working together with Liberty, our industry-leading trusted identity technologies will provide secure and convenient access to the enterprise EV charging infrastructure using the same HID credential used to enter the building.”
Liberty has significant experience providing their customers with a wide range of access control solutions, including HID access cards, personal identification numbers (PINs), and smartphone apps. In fact, Liberty was the first company to activate a charging session using an HID card over 4 years ago. HID Global is a world leader in credentials used for secure access to
buildings, parking garages, and other enterprise functions where additional security is desired or required.
“Ease-of-use and accessibility are important components of the EV charging experience and these factors are often overlooked,” according to Chris Outwater, CEO of Liberty. “Now drivers can use their same HID credential to open the parking lot gate, start their charging session and enter their building. This makes the workplace EV charging process seamless, secure, and intuitive.”
