DOCUMENT: ACCESS CONTROL

There is a new normal in building technology that occupiers are now demanding. Building owners and facility managers must provide a secure and healthy environment. COVID-19 has impacted the physical security of a building. The need to secure locations and remotely track who is entering and exiting your building, where they have spent time, and who they have come into contact with are critical components for contract tracing to stop the spread.

THE PROBLEM

There is a new normal in building technology that occupiers are now demanding. Building owners and facility managers must provide a secure and healthy environment. COVID-19 has impacted the physical security of a building. The need to secure locations and remotely track who is entering and exiting your building, where they have spent time, and who they have come into contact with are critical components for contract tracing to stop the spread.

COVID-19 Impact of Physical Security:

  • Increased need for access control and video surveillance solutions for buildings

  • Space/contact tracing for positive COVID-19 cases through access control

  • Ability to secure locations and remotely monitor

  • Management of access rights for employees

  • Bluetooth Mobile credentials

THE SOLUTION

Access Control gives you the ability to secure your building and remotely monitor. An access control system provides the ability to provide quick, convenient access to authorized personnel and restrict unauthorized personal from entering the building. An Access Control System can limit access points to meet social distancing requirements, specify designated entrance and exists, add touchless readers for entry, temporary badging system to tack guests, and provide a people counting systems with card readers or cameras.

WHY INTEGRATE ACCESS CONTROL INTO HVAC SYSTEM?

Access Control will provide true Building Information Management Data (BIM).

This data will indicate where people have been, authorized areas and when they were present. Sharing a unified platform provides the keys to a healthy dashboard.


Examples of Using Access Control with HVAC System:

  • Traffic Patterns

    • Gain insights as to how occupants move through a facility

    • Control ventilation and HVAC, lighting, occupancy settings

    • Add custom data fields to access database to track COVID-19 Testing

  • Occupancy

    • Determine when areas are really occupied

    • Determine number of occupants, ventilation, and lighting requirements

    • Determine who is in the space and optimize setting based on this 

HOW ACCESS CONTROL CAN FAST TRACK BUILDING REENTRY

  • Limit access points to meet social distancing requirements

  • Do not use the same entrance for your exits – one way in and one way out

  • Add touchless entry utilizing Bluetooth readers 

  • Utilize access control database to track personnel testing status 

  • Integrate with HVAC Controls to achieve ventilation and filtration 

  • Temporary badging capabilities at visitor check-in and screening desk

  • People counting with cameras or card readers

WHERE ACCESS CONTROL IS BEING USED?

  • Schools

  • Medical Offices

  • Hospitals

  • Office Buildings

  • Manufacturing
