Welcome to Identiscan

Visitor identity is crucial to the effective security of an estate or complex. Manual visitor record books are ineffective means of management as information is largely inaccurate and mostly illegible.

With the implementation and roll out of the Protection of Information (POPI) Act, paper based access control registers are no longer compliant and will soon become obsolete.
OnGuard has developed a modern solution for its replacement called Identiscan, a hand-held mobile data terminal effective in scanning both motor vehicle and driver licences.

The Identiscan electronic visitor management system (EVMS) ensures all data is encrypted and stored offsite on a secure server.
The guard managing the IdentiScan scanner must first correctly identify himself using his personal PIN before he can collect data, ensuring accountability for management of the scanner as well as the allocation of the access record to the specific guard. No longer can a staff member say “It wasn’t me who let the visitor in”.

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
  • Direct control of gate or boom with scanner


“We have seen a real benefit in reduced crime by percentage on the Estate since using the IdentiScan scanner. It enables us to ascertain if the driver has valid driver licence and that the vehicle is valid as well. All visitors, including contractors, are recorded entering the Estate and I receive daily reports on the day’s activities. I am able to retrieve backup information from the server in order to follow up should an incidence occur. I would most definitely recommend IdentiScan if you want hands-on security. Richard Frost ensures we receive all software upgrades and they are on the ball all the time; they provide a very good service.”

Peter Bicar, Estate manager, Silvertree Estate, Tokai

“IdentiScan has been a wonderful benefit to our complex. We bought one and then ordered another when we realised the full benefits. Previously we were having to write down all the details of every visitor and you had no idea if the details were valid or not. Now we are immediately able to identify who is illegally on the road and who is honest, who is coming in and out and what time they leave and there is less tendency for errors. People can’t put down a false name and we are able to identify who is driving the car by their photograph. What is wonderful if that we can go into the system on our computers and manage it to further identify suspicious IDs and foreign cars. It has really jacked up our security and unwanted people are more cautious about attempting to come in. We received excellent service from IdentiScan throughout. I am very happy with IdentiScan and think the product is well priced as well. I am very happy to pay their price and would recommend it to anyone else.”

Mavia du Plessis, Crocriver Mountain Conservancy

“IdentiScan has been fantastic for us. We have been using it for over a year now and have seen the technology develop and improve. IdentiScan is a massive deterrent for someone who wants to enter illegally. It also prevents people who don’t have a valid registration or identification from entering – there is just no basis for argument. If they don’t have a driver’s license they simply don’t come in.  As soon as we scan them we know who is going in and when they are coming out. From the criminal perspective, they just go somewhere else. We receive very good service from IdentiScan; there is never any downtime. We once needed something to be looked at and it was attended to in a matter of hours. The product is not just limited to use for guarding companies either. I am the Chairman of a complex of 1 550 houses and we have direct access to a list of all visitors on a daily basis, with their photo ID and full details so we can trace any internal incidences as they occur. I am also on a Board of Trustees that securitises a residential precinct and we have no crime whatsoever. I have only ever had a very good experience with the IdentiScan product and the company, we have had no problems at all, which is very unusual. I changed over to using Jamie Bell and IdentiScan because the last company we used was managed so badly. I couldn’t be happier.”

Tony Heath, Stable Yard Estate

“IdentiScan is a good security solution for putting in access control measures and we offer it as a current service to all our clients. It takes away the work of handwritten security tasks and increases control procedures at estates and places of business. IndentiScan’s Jamie Bell provides a good support service and a good standard of training and handled all our queries well. I can recommend both the product and their services.”
