The COVID-19 has dramatically changed our way of life and given rise to a new normal where social and physical distancing and virtual interactions are commonplace.
Although COVID remains a considerable threat without a vaccine and effective treatment businesses are slowly returning to work. Experts have confirmed the importance of access controls as people return to work—KPMG lists access controls as one of the four key mitigation measures in allowing workers to return to the workplace. Thus it is not an exaggeration to say that access control technology has transcended beyond its core intended application as a security tool and is helping protect individuals from infection and allowing businesses to get back up and running.
Access controls in the new normal will include screening people at building entrances to maintain office hygiene. And the safest way to conduct these screening is to do it without physical contact, utilizing contactless access control solutions. As the name suggests, contactless solution eliminates or minimizes physical contact where possible to reduce the risk of infection. No single device or access control solution with contactless feature can meet the varying needs of different facilities and settings. Organizations must pick and choose from a comprehensive portfolio of contactless access control and security solutions such as face recognition, Mobile Access and thermal camera integration to build a system customized to their needs.
Reducing physical contact reduces the risk of infection. Features like abnormal temperature and face mask detection that comes with some of the contactless solutions can help keep individuals, businesses and society safe and healthy.
Investing in new technologies like mobile access can also save cost as an alternative to issuing physical cards.
