Title: Method and apparatus for network controlled access to physical spaces
Publication number: US9508207 B2
Publication date: November 29, 2016
Abstract: The system provides a method and apparatus for providing controlled access to events, premises, transportation, and the like. In one embodiment, the system provides a ticket that is tied to a user and/or a device. The ticket in one embodiment comprises a dynamic link whose privileges and permissions can be controlled by a system controller so that use, re-use, and re-sale of the ticket can be controlled by the issuer and not by a purchaser or user. The system in one embodiment uses a reader/scanner associated with a controlled entrance that can receive tickets via scanning or some other form of electronic communication. In one embodiment, the system uses radio signals, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC (Near Field Communication) from a mobile device to determine if access should be granted.
Title: Method and apparatus for network controlled ticket access
Publication number: US9576255 B2
Publication Date: February 21, 2017
Abstract: The system provides a method and apparatus for providing controlled access to premises. The system in one embodiment uses a reader/scanner associated with a controlled entrance that can receive credentials manually or via scanning or some other form of electronic communication. In one embodiment, the system uses NFC (Near Field Communication) from a mobile device to determine if access should be granted. The system contemplates a number of different tiers of users whose right of access to a location depends on the tier in which the user resides. For one time visitors, the system contemplates transmitting an access credential that can be used by a specific user for a limited time period. In some cases, the access credential is tied to a particular device.
