GAI-TRONICS unveils temperature sensing feature for today’s access control regimes
19 January 2021
GAI-TRONICS, the manufacturer of industrial and commercial communication solutions, has added a new temperature sensing-based access control feature to the HUBBCOM family of products. Temperature sensing is a new way in which to facilitate a contactless check-in process for employees and authorised visitors in buildings in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“GAI-TRONICS is proud to have developed an access control feature that complies with World Health Organisation COVID-19 safety standards and guidelines to ensure peace of mind for building owners and users and actively promote Health and Safety,” explained senior product manager Stu Foote.
The benefits of temperature sensing access control Include:
*body temperature reading while wearing a mask
*minimisation of face-to-face contact when checking into a building
*reduction of contact transmission by reporting irregular body temperatures
*reduction of manual temperature scanning workload
*compliance with COVID-19 safety standards and regulations
Temperature sensing in practice
How does temperature sensing work in practice? An authorised user walks into a business’s reception area, scans their access card and is prompted to align their face with the template that appears on the screen. Body temperature is read within two-to-five seconds and, if a satisfactory temperature is detected, access is then granted.
Access to a building is denied if an irregular body temperature is detected. An email report of the body temperature and photo are sent to a pre-determined individual (either a member of the security team or the facility management staff).
What makes GAI-TRONICS’ system different? HUBBCOM devices provide numerous functionalities from access control and point-to-point audio/video intercom through to SIP telephony and facility-wide or zoned broadcasting and alarm generation. Temperature sensing is an option offered on HUBBCOM models (GSC1100TS, GSC2100TS, GSC3100TS and GSC4100TS).
Temperature sensing access control is an ideal security solution for businesses across a wide range of markets including manufacturing facilities, offices, educational institutions, healthcare and, in fact, almost any building with an indoor entranceway.
