ICT and Healthcare Facilities
Hospitals and healthcare facilities provide around the clock care, and deal with large numbers of patients and visitors every day. Growing instances of unauthorized entry and physical assaults against staff, see management faced with the challenge of balancing public accessibility with the responsibility of providing staff and patients with a safe and secure environment.
Tight controls need to be imposed on restricted areas such as pharmacies, treatment rooms, and patient wards - visitor access needs to be confined to the designated hours and areas, sensitive patient data needs to be protected, healthcare regulations need to be met - all without compromising patient care.
Key features an ICT solution provides include:
Allows only a single door in a defined group to be open at one time. Ideal for preventing dangerous things getting in or out of a hazardous area.
Two Factor Authentication
What you have (card) and what you know (PIN)/who you are (biometrics)- prevents a lost or stolen credential from being used to gain unauthorized access.
Intelligent time based control of access and energy management, automatically adjusts for daylight savings and holidays.
Requires two authorized users to supply credentials to gain access to a door.
Prevents users from passing their credential back for another user to borrow and stops users entering an area by following or tailgating another user.
Lockdown a single door or the whole site to restrict entry, exit or all access during an emergency situation.
Unlock a single door, an egress path, or the entire site to facilitate a smooth and trouble free emergency evacuation.
Extended Access Time
Provides additional time for particular users to make their way through selected doors.
