Finding the Best Solution to Control Visitors on Large Campuses
Traditional visitor management doesn't work in a large campus setting. Therefore, a recent STOPware customer came to us looking for the best way to control visitors on their open campus. They wanted to identify who was authorized to be on campus at all times. Unfortunately a standard wireless connection wasn't accessible across this expansive campus.
Since visitors and students alike are roaming the campus, this customer deployed a security group on campus, armed with a Panasonic Toughbook Mobile Computer with Broadband, an integrated drivers license scanner, and a Bluetooth Mobile printer.
Each student ID has a bar code which security personnel can simply scan to do a real-time lookup to verify that students are active in the school directory. There is no manual entry required. When security personnel come across a visitor or person without a badge, they simply scan their drivers' license to capture their personal data which is automatically checked against watch lists. Once the visitor is cleared, a badge is printed on-the-spot and the visitor is tracked in the central system. All scanned information is automatically communicated in real-time. Therefore if an emergency occurs, the central monitoring location knows exactly who is on campus.
We respect the privacy of our clients and therefore have not released our client's name in this article. If you have questions or would like more details about this installation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
