What has been a normal keypad security system in the past can now cause a point of tension in a world where this virus lives on surfaces we contact.
Apartment buildings, education facilities, public service offices and many more facilities have previously opted for keypad entry as a form of access control. Unfortunately, even before the pandemic, these created a petri dish for bacteria and germs to live.
With thousands of people entering pin codes daily, the risk of coronavirus living on the surface and potentially infecting many people must be taken seriously. Now, more than ever, it is the right time to look at updating security to keep your facilities, residents and employees safe while they return to a new standard of living.
Contactless smart card readers provide the most common form of touchless access and come in a wide variety of physical sizes and security technologies. The user carries their access card with them and simply presents it in a contactless way to the reader to gain access. This method ensures a high level of security can be maintained while mitigating the risk of spreading the virus. With this, you can add and remove user access as and where required. For example, if a resident moves out or an employee leaves your company, there is no risk posed to your security with a new access control system like this.
Suppose your managing a highly secure facility and are currently utilizing fingerprint readers as your access solution. In that case, you could look to IRIS ID as an improved form of contactless biometric security. IRIS ID enables highly secure user authentication by taking leading-edge iris scanning technology and working where others may not, whether due to PPE, scars, or dirty environments. IRIS ID relies on a clear vision of an iris to authenticate identity and approve access.
