Hygienic Access Control
Hygiene has rapidly become an important factor in access control for workplaces and other areas with higher daily volumes of visitor traffic. Hygienic, touchless identification solutions are positioned to grow more important in the future.
Solutions that allow hands-free control of access points are particularly ideal for hospitals and other settings that must enforce hygiene in critical areas. Idesco hands-free solutions are designed to permit entry through powered doors by authorized staff through control points without touching any surface, while preventing access by all others.
For example, Idesco EPC readers will readily transact with staff necklace transponders from significant distance, permitting hands-free, powered door access to staff guiding patient gurneys, or carrying supplies.
Idesco’s new mobile access solution provides yet another hygienic option. When configured to security level 1, Idesco’s mobile compatible 8 CD 2.0 MI reader detects user privileges in a pocket-held mobile phone. Hands-free transaction distances are flexibly adjustable between one and thirteen meters.
Traditional access control readers can help preserve hygiene – if they are also easy to clean. Obviously, so readers and tags must both be able to tolerate constant, harsh cleaning.
If your site will demand pin codes, Idesco offers capacitive pin pad readers that are easily sanitized. Wherever mechanical keypads are essential, please note that Idesco’s mechanical keypads are also easy to clean. They have no gaps between keys and housing: such gaps unavoidably wick and retain vapor, dust – and viable viral particles.
