BlueDiamond Mobile Credentials

Empowering your phone to open doors


As smartphones and tablets become central to everyday life, Lenel is leveraging new technologies to provide exceptionally secure access control. BlueDiamond™ Mobile delivers a smart alternative to plastic badges, offering greater convenience without compromising security. Since people are rarely without their phones, this solution gives them another access option in addition to their keycards.

Benefits across the board


Unlike many other solutions, BlueDiamond Mobile credentials can be allocated to new phones or people as needed, and can be remotely deactivated. And since smartphones can require a security code or biometric for access as well as possession of the phone, app, and downloaded credential, the solution can provide multi-factor authentication. For an additional layer of protection, BlueDiamond Mobile credentials are automatically deactivated if not periodically refreshed by the cloud server. This helps provide enhanced security by ensuring deactivated credentials are removed from deauthorised devices.

An Appreciation: Tom Watkins, Emory University

The European Campus Card Association is deeply saddened to learn of the death of our colleague and friend Tom Watkins who died on 22nd December 2016.

Tom was and a great friend of our association. a gentleman of the highest integrity. An outstanding leader who provided unstinting dedication to serving his country for 41 years in the USAF Reserves and also serving the community at Emory University for over 34 years. For almost a decade, Tom attended our annual conference each year. In May 2016 at our last conference in Wroclaw Poland, he delivered an inspiring presentation on the Rollout of Mobile Phone Applications at Emory University.

We all have fond memories of Tom and it was a privilege to know him, his company was enjoyed by all of us over the years. A great servant of the campus card industry, his presence and contribution will be sadly missed by his many colleagues throughout Europe.


On behalf of our association, I extend our deepest sympathy to Tom’s family, his friends and his work colleagues at Emory University.

ECCA Survey 2016 Report

The European Campus Card Association (ECCA) is dedicated to providing a networking platform for its members (both educational and corporate) that facilitates the on-going development of partnerships and the exchange of information between higher education institutions and the campus card industry.

As part of this process, ECCA commissioned a survey in April 2016 to determine the current state-of-the-art and the potential future requirements for eID credentials and campus card systems in Europe and beyond. The findings from the survey, which involved 181 education institutions from 28 countries, reflects the views and opinions of a wide range of educational institutions. These findings will assist ECCA’s research and innovation programme, particularly in the area of establishing common platforms to facilitate the interoperability of campus systems, together with promoting the concept of a common eIDsolution that will achieve interoperability between institutions on a cross-border basis.

ECCA Survey 2016

The ECCA 2016 Survey to determine the current state-of-the-art and the potential future requirements for eID credentials and campus card systems has been successful completed. The survey link is now closed. The initial findings of the survey were presented at the ECCA Annual Conference, which was held at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland from May 22nd to 24th last.

The survey, which involved 181 education institutions from 28 countries, was an initiative from ECCA’s new strategic plan. It reflects the views and opinions of a wide range of educational institutions. The finding will provide a valuable insight into current state of eID credentials, campus card systems and technology, together with identifying the future needs and requirements of systems.

Following an analysis of the information provided by the survey, a detailed report will be compiled and distributed to all the participating educational institutions and the ECCA membership in early September. The initial findings of the survey as presented at the ECCA Annual Conference are available to members on this website.


The next ECCA survey will be commissioned in early 2017.

Call for Presentations
European Campus Card Association (ECCA) 2016 Conference
May 22nd-24th 2016 (Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland)

Devoted to innovative use of smart card and mobile contactless technologies, designed to improve the services offered within universities campuses, ECCA 2016 will accept presentations that offer attendees pioneering practices, real and sustainable solutions and a view on future trends.

Smart cards are essential building blocks for many applications and systems used in payment, content protection, transportation, student services, mobile and identification.

Besides the commercial and application aspects of smart cards, this year the ECCA conference wants to gather researchers and technologists with strong focus on all aspects of smart card (i.e. cards, tokens, smart phones and embedded chips) development and deployment of solutions, preferably those with strong emphasis on enhancing life within campus.
