how do you bitward devices?
The number of compatible devices with our Bitwards Access Platform is growing. When our partners implement our technology into their devices and machinery, their customers can immediately start utilizing our combined convenience. We call this bitwarding.
We have packaged our technology into a small software library, which is easy to integrate into various devices with BLE or NFC technology. The installation and commissioning process of a bitwarded device is quick and simple. The devices can be delivered to the customer as off-the-shelf products and enrolled to the customer’s Bitwards Access Platform account in a minute with a mobile app. Once configured, the customer can start sharing access to its end-users.
The Bitwards Application Library is a software application which can be installed to various electronic devices equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy or NFC technology and that enables easy and secure sharing of temporary as well as long term access rights for end-users mobile devices.
It serves as the main component that authenticates the access tokens delivered from users’ mobile devices and commands the device to grant access to the user accordingly.
The Library interacts with the device Firmware via an API and defined callbacks. Electronic devices are usually integrated or form a part of a larger system such as a door lock or a complete door, room or space, bicycle or vehicle, etc. which we refer to as Resources.
To enable sharing of access rights to users without limitations, the mobile devices must be able to connect with the device without former connections or pairing between the mobile device and the resource. This feature is in-built in the nature of the NFC protocol and in resources using Bluetooth Low Energy, the connection is made in the Advertising layer of the communication protocol, requiring no previous connections between the mobile device and resource.
The Library is supplied in a binary format matching the corresponding’s Resource microprocessor architecture. The Library size is small ranging usually between 15-20 kbytes only.
