As access control threats evolve, so does the security technology needed to mitigate them. Artificial intelligence (AI)-powered analytics, glass partitions and other security tools can prevent threats to entrance security — read the top three access control trends now.
While artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming an integral part of business operations in myriad market segments around the globe, security applications have been slower to adopt it into the mix. However, the added health risks organizations now face from COVID-19 have forced both security solutions providers and users to rethink how AI can help mitigate those risks.
From the initial secured entrance to the overarching access control system, the emphasis is currently on contactless access control and door entry solutions. A myriad of technologies from NFC and smart mobile devices to facial biometrics will help play a vital role in what are now COVID-driven essentials. An integrated strategy for access control, along with tailgating mitigation options including turnstiles, revolving doors and mantrap portals enables building security to implement even more comprehensive control and prioritized security while making use of touchless credentials.
How can electronic access control solutions and other devices like biometrics technologies be configured to help mitigate unauthorized entry through swing doors and turnstiles? Here, we’ll take a look at swing doors and turnstiles first, then the high security revolving doors and mantrap portals.
One of the best-known brands in the realm of electrical and electronic equipment isn’t a manufacturer, a distributor or a dealer. It’s UL, a certification organization that verifies the safety of the products it tests.
Alarms are sounding, lights are flashing, and there is a sense of panic in the air. There is a fire in your facility that requires an immediate evacuation of all employees and visitors, and you are in charge. How you handle that emergency process can be a matter of life and death.
