Safe Guarding against Covid-19

Posted in News

Creating healthy and safe environments is now a key requirement in helping people return to work and re-start their normal activities.
To improve and help safeguard against Covid-19 or any infectious virus sensor access controls systems can provide the following solutions:

  • Room capacity monitoring. 
  • Touchless door operation.
  • Temperature detection.
 
Capacity Monitoring

It is very important now to ensure people have sufficient space to be able to maintain the current guideline of 2 meters apart from each other. This is where capacity counting can play an important role to prevent overcrowding of a space.
Within the Guardpoint10 there is a highly configurable module called “Areas” This allows spaces (buildings, rooms, etc.) which can be defined for monitoring the occupancy.  Capacity can be set to each area which in turn can trigger a configurable action. The action could be to stop allowing more people in or send an alert email, many options are available.

The screenshot below showing the area module in GuardPoint10:

GP10-AREA GuardPoint 10 real-time visual and reporting of cardholder movements.
GP10-AGR GuardPoint 10 additional cause and effect actions such as: Send a email and  Run External application.

Touchless Door Operation

Reducing the points of human contact on a door will reduce the point of cross-contamination. Proximity readers are contact-less but exit buttons usually are not. Therefore we are offering a capacitive exit button “ETC-1” which has an advantage over infrared versions as it is more accurate and not as affected by smoke, dust, fog, sunlight, etc

The ETC-1 can detect your hand up to a range of 5 cm from the button and has a mechanical override in case of power failure

Contact-less Exit

EBC-1

Contactless exit button with a capacitive sensor with a mechanical override.

Temperature Detection

Facial recognition readers have been around for a while but recently this is now being combined with a thermal recognition camera.
The thermal sensor allows the reader to measure the body temperature at the same as doing facial verification. This helps companies to stop any employee or visitor who is exhibiting high body temperature from entering the building and therefore protecting the people inside the premises from possible infection.

Part Code

Description

FRS-1T

8“ Thermal Facial recognition reader with either Wiegand output. Supports temperature detection via thermal imaging, live detection and Automatic light compensation.

Contactless Exit Buttons

Posted in Products, Uncategorized

In view of this pandemic situation, we would like to introduce to you the advantages of our new exit button the EBC-1.

  • Cross-contamination is reduced as there is no need to physically touch the button to unlock the door.
  • The EBC-1 uses a capacitance proximity sensor instead of infrared making it less affected by environmental factors such as dust and sunlight, etc.
  • The unit has a mechanical override which means it can be pressed like a regular exit button if necessary.
  • There is also an optional wireless remote control to open the door remotely.

Mitsubishi ELSGW integration with GuardPoint10

Posted in Products, Uncategorized

Sensor Access Technology has developed an integration with the very latest DOAS Mitsubishi Lift system. ELSGW (Elevator Secure Gateway)

Mitsubishi Electric’s DOAS system optimizes multi-car elevator systems by allocating cars efficiently according to the floors that passengers input while waiting in the hall, helping to reduce both wait and travel times.The integration means that you can restrict access to the cardholder via time schedules and floors or destinations increasing security and efficiency of movement around the building.


The Operation
When combining DOAS with GuardPoint10 the cardholder operation can work in the following ways:
The passenger waves an ID card over the card reader in the hall and then enters an authorized floor number.
The user’s floor is preregistered in the ID card, so after the card is waved over the reader, the panel directs the user to the elevator going to that floor. There is no need to enter the floor number manually.
