When a turnstile breaks down, it can cause a bottleneck effect in an entry point, creating hassles, costly repairs and the opportunity for security breaches while equipment is down and personnel distracted. IP connectivity in these turnstiles reduces operational and service costs, as technicians can remotely obtain diagnostic information through remote access without the need to physically visit or open the pedestal cases. With the online access, the turnstiles can also auto-update firmware to enhance a unit’s performance. The IP connectivity also turns any computer, tablet or smartphone with Internet access into a remote console, which allows security personnel to authorize visitor entry or exit and adjust standard operating modes without being tied to a desk.
