Benefits of using identiscan

The first level of access control is to ensure the identity of the person and vehicle is accurate. The 2D barcode, when decoded, results in text and a picture appearing on the hand held scanner.


The biggest benefits of using Identiscan are :


  • Accuracy of information
  • Elimination of paper based access control registers
  • Improved speed of  processing visitors and contractors
  • No Computer equipment required. Data stored offsite.
  • Automatic warnings of undesirables people / vehicles
  • Reporting

Management of the egress and exit to a complex can be improved if the manpower is correctly allocated. Identifying criteria such as traffic volumes and bottleneck times is easily accomplished by drawing reports.

How does it work?

Identiscan is a system which uses a hand held mobile terminal to scan the bar codes printed on drivers licences and MV licence disks.

A user definable list of questions is asked of each visitor entering the estate. To input these settings, the administrator logs on to the administration section in his profile and ticks the relevant boxes.

Data Transmission


As soon as the scanning process is completed, the data is transferred by either WIFI or GSM to the 


White Lists and Black lists.


To prevent undesirable people or vehicles from gaining access, the administrator captures the particulars on our internet website. The data is automatically uploaded to the mobile terminal and when the vehicle of persons ID or Drivers licence is scanned, the guard is warned.

The guard's name is now automatically attached to each record uploaded to the server.


The transaction forms an audit trail so that a guard may be disciplined if he errs in the data captured or negligently allows access despite being warned. In addition, the guard can be held responsible for damages to the mobile device.


Why is this an advantage?

Criminals usually do recky of a target in order to establish the viablity and risk associate with the planned activity.

Enrolling the use of Identiscan in your estate or complex significantly reduces the probabilty of crime as criminals avoid situtions where they can be properly identified.  Since the scanner displays an electronically decoded image of the person, there is no way that a maniplulated driver's licence can be used.


The vehicles particulars, namely colour, make and model are also decrypted from the licence disk thereby making it more difficult for the criminal to use false number plates to gain access.  The Guard staff naturally need to be trained to compare the information provided by the scanner with that of the person and vehicle in question.





A feature which we are working on, is a report which will be emailed daily to the estate manager, to indicate whic contractors have not yet left the security estate. Most HOA require contractors to leave the estate by a certing time each day. See the sample report below.
