How a visitor management system helps to increase workplace security
A controlled key distribution cannot meet the required security standards on the level required by modern workplace security conditions. The visitor management system combining the most advanced electronic protection, video surveillance, biometric recognition, and database control is the state-of-the-art solution for increased workplace security.
Visitor management and access control system is the kind of technical protection with the greatest tendency of continuous growth in the world. The reason is an increase in the number of unwanted and potentially dangerous events at workplaces around the world.
Furthermore, the development of private companies that want to control access to their premises in order to maintain their values, protect their information and limit the access of visitors. The increased interest of users is also affected by the reduction of prices of these systems and new technologies for identification, protection, and communication.
Why traditional security measures and methods are outdated?
Today, even high-quality, Anti-theft, security keys can be copied and you cannot be sure who can enter your workplace. Key holders can also use it at any time and cannot track the logs when someone uses the keys. This is very important in case of unwanted events in the protected workplace area.
Benefits of the visitor management system
An advanced visitor management system is significantly more efficient than any traditional method. For each user and each door, it is possible to determine allowed access time periods and forbidden access (e.g. out of working hours). If any illegal, dangerous or simply unwanted event happens in the workplace, the presence of each suspect can be easily proven via the system logs (event logs, i.e. inputs and outputs).
Furthermore, access control is applicable to all types of objects.
Areas of application
Today, these complex access control and visitor management systems are predominantly installed in business facilities, industrial facilities, and public and state institutions. A large number of users are from finance, trade and hotel sectors. Furthermore, these advanced systems are increasingly used in public spaces such as airports, train stations, stadiums, and cultural institutions. It is recommended to install such a system in any workplace with a large number of visitors or type of activity dealing with sensitive or confidential data.
How the visitor management system help to increase workplace security?
These systems have several functions, including.
- Making the invader give up
- Early detection of invaders
- Slowing the invader down
- Alerting the workers
- Alerting the intervention teams
- Identifying the invader
A complex system of management and protection provides the desired safety at the workplace by:
- Integrated anti-spam subsystems
- Access control and video surveillance
- Centralized anti-corruption and access control systems integrated anti-theft, anti-fire system, fire alarm.
- Access control and hijacking
- Integrated and centralized alarm system.
- Digital recording (input and output logs).
Two main functions of these systems are the basic protective function and advanced security management functions.
1. Basic protective function
Access control, anti-burglary and external protection, anti-theft, video surveillance and fire alarm, compose a fundamental system of technical protection. The most common motive for its introduction is preventing criminal activities and the consequences they have on the safety of workers and property.
2. Advanced security management
In addition to the “classic” protective functions in terms of preventing criminal activities, the visitor management system significantly affects the reduction of many other security risks. The system can eliminate many security shortcomings, sources of risk and reduce potential and real workplace intentionally and unintentionally caused losses as it allows control and records of visitor access and movement, spatial routing, and employee movement tracking. Furthermore, it is especially important for time limiting movement control, managing access authority, central administration, monitoring and detection of abuse of power and protection of space of each worker.
