Touchless Physical Access Control Keeps Employees and Visitors Safe and Healthy

Deploying touchless physical access control devices and other innovative solutions is an essential strategy for enhancing both employee security and health in the workplace. As organizations navigate the complexities of providing a secure yet healthy environment, especially in the wake of global health challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic, these technologies offer a dual benefit: heightened security and reduced health risks.

Touchless Access Control: Part of an Enhanced Security and Health Strategy

Increased Security with Minimal Contact: Traditional access control systems often rely on physical contact, such as fingerprint scanners or keypads. Touchless solutions, like mobile credentials or proximity sensors, eliminate this need, reducing the risk of physical contact. These systems can be integrated with existing security infrastructure, ensuring robust protection without the cost of a complete replacement. When used with automatic door openers, 100% touch-free is possible.

Health Benefits: Touchless systems inherently reduce the number of surfaces employees must touch, lowering the likelihood of germ transmission. In times of health crises, this aspect becomes crucial. Moreover, these systems can be configured to perform temperature checks or enforce mask-wearing, adding an extra layer of health safety measures.

Ease of Integration and Use: Implementing touchless access control devices is generally straightforward, often requiring minimal changes to existing security setups. For employees, these systems are intuitive and user-friendly, requiring little to no learning curve, which ensures quick adaptation and acceptance.

Future-Proofing the Workplace: As we move into a future where health considerations are likely to remain a priority, touchless access control systems offer a scalable and flexible solution. They can adapt to evolving health guidelines and integrate with other health and safety technologies, making them a long-term investment for businesses.

The integration of touchless physical access control devices in workplaces is not just a trend but a necessity in the current health-conscious and security-aware business landscape. These systems offer a seamless blend of enhanced security and health safety, contributing to a more resilient and future-ready workplace environment. As technology continues to evolve, the potential for these systems to incorporate even more advanced features will further solidify their role as a crucial component of modern workplace management.
