The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has presented a challenge to communities and businesses. As businesses start actively planning to open their places of work safely, Vanderbilt is providing their customers with smart and reliable strategies to help create a safer environment for staff and visitors. At Vanderbilt, they have explored best practices for protecting employees and visitors when they come to a building.

Check out some of the solutions below as the company aims to help businesses create a safe environment:

  • Touchless access control devices

Minimise contact with touch-free access control devices like Bluetooth readers and touch-free exit buttons. Deploy new credentials with no physical unit, and authorised visitors can be emailed a QR code that will grant them access to the building in a hands-free way. All compatible with ACT365 and ACTpro.

  • Occupancy management for social distancing

Manage and audit occupancy levels to ensure social distancing. Automated people counting systems offer a method of counting and limiting access to certain areas. Operators can enable a maximum occupancy level to prevent overcrowding within a building or in an area.

  • Temperature and mask detection

Touchless biometric readers that will detect whether the temperature of an individual is below a threshold before the system grants access. The facial recognition devices can also check whether the person is wearing a mask before letting them enter in a room or building.

  • Contact traceability reporting

Contact traceability reports enable organisations to monitor areas or zones where an individual has either a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19. Users could then be sent a push notification, prompting them to get tested if they have encountered an infected person.

  • Real-time cleaning requirements

Provide alarms when thresholds are met to alert cleaning staff. A building supervisor can set thresholds on different areas in the building, to alert the cleaning staff when areas have reached the level when they need to re-cleansed.

  • Remote security management

The rise in staff working from home has increased even further since the COVID-19 lockdown was introduced, and it is therefore critical that security staff can maintain control and monitor their organisation’s security systems remotely.

We need to talk about intelligent enclosure protection

Enclosures containing electronics, communications or cabling infrastructure offer a simple attack point for cyber breaches and an opportunity for a physical attack on the hardware. Yet, many of these assets are housed within enclosures that provide minimal security features to offer a deterrent to any would-be attacker. This has always just been a pet hate. Walking down the high street of a town anywhere in the United Kingdom, you can often see open street communication cabinets. You can actual...
