Network video door stations are one of today’s most effective hardware solutions for access control to ensure job site security. A network video door station contains an HD video camera you can position strategically at an entry point so you can use remote software or even a mobile app to clearly see who is at the door. Two-way audio also enables you to communicate instructions to personnel seeking entry or to request identification. Deploying a network video station allows you to definitively verify who is requesting access to any location, regardless of whether you’re physically present or not.
To support network video door stations, you should also install surveillance cameras at other key points on your job site. The easiest way to do this is by deploying mobile surveillance units, which are wireless and can be installed anywhere.
Touch-free readers are another cutting-edge hardware tool. For instance, the E Reader is a touch-free reader with a keypad that supports most smart cards and can be used both outdoors and indoors. The keypad is illuminated with clearly visible symbols so it’s easy for the user to see, and it includes a sounder to provide user feedback.
