Lancaster, Penn. – March 18, 2015 — ECKey ( introduces the VP1 “Dual Mode” Reader, a complete electronic access control system that eliminates the hassle and expense of panels, cards, readers, software and networks.  It works with VIZpin, their cloud-based SaaS (Security as a Service), that lets you send, revoke and monitor electronic keys anytime from anywhere. The VP1 uses long-range Bluetooth so you can mount it in a secure area, away from weather and vandals, or out-of-sight for architecturally and historically-sensitive installations.

Other Bluetooth readers only support Bluetooth Smart (aka Bluetooth Low Energy) devices and may only work with the latest iPhones.  ECKey’s VP1 reader works with ALL Bluetooth Classic or Bluetooth LE devices including flip phones, Blackberry® and Windows®, Android® and iPhones® ; it even works with tablets and PCs.  “We have always focused on commercial applications and learned early on that you can’t predict what type of device your employees, visitors, contractors or vendors have.  Since 99%+ of the installed devices today have either Bluetooth Classic or SMART, the VP1 has you covered,” commented Paul Bodell, President and CEO of ECKey.  

The VIZpin Smart app for iPhone is now available on iTunes or on Google Play for Android devices.
