Securing a building or site is not just about access control. Keeping out unauthorized persons and granting access to authorized persons is of course very important, but it is also important to know at all times who is present in the building. That is why it is advisable to choose a solution that combines access control and registration.
Why access control and registration?
More efficient action in the event of calamities
The most important reason for choosing a system that combines access control and registration is to be able to act correctly in the event of calamities. When a situation arises in which the building needs to be evacuated, one glance at the registration system shows how many people are present in the building. Depending on the security level, it is even possible to check which floors and rooms these people are on. In this way, it is possible to act more efficiently and prevent an emergency situation from escalating.
Link with time registration
It is also possible to link access control to time registration. This can offer a solution in buildings where employees are remunerated on the basis of available hours. By linking access control and registration with time registration, there is no need for a separate check-in and check-out system. The hours worked are automatically implemented in the payroll or payment system.
Automating visitor registration
With an access control system linked to registration, it goes without saying that not only employees but also visitors can be registered. There are numerous possibilities to extend the benefits of such a registration process. Think for example of a system where visitors can make an appointment online, after which they will be sent a QR code. They can scan this QR code upon entering the building, for example at access lanes or registration kiosks. The person with whom the appointment has been made then automatically receives a notification, so that he or she can receive the visitor.
