Abrégé

An access gate that controls access to a restricted area, the access gate includes a communications interface having a long range wireless beacon and a short range radio frequency beacon. The gate includes a movable physical barrier, a processing unit, and a memory. The memory has instructions stored thereon that cause the processing unit to detect, using the long range beacon, the presence of a mobile device, receive, using the long range beacon, an access credential from the mobile device, and validate the access credential. The memory also has instructions that cause the processing unit to determine, using the short range radio frequency beacon, that the mobile device is within a threshold distance of the access gate and manipulate the movable physical barrier to allow access to a user of the mobile device based on the determination that the mobile device is within the threshold distance of the access gate.
