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”.
