visitor management system

From K-12  through college and university campuses, educational institutions rely on our ID scanning solutions to keep their facilities and grounds safe.

Process and Track Visitors

Protect students, teachers, and staff by validating and approving all visitors at the point of entry:

  • Manage Access

    Print visitor badges with name and time of expiration to manage access while inside

  • Maintain records

    Capture visitor information and image in less than a second and add a record to our visitor management software. Reports can be easily exported.

  • Keep out unwanted visitors

    Automatically run IDs against banned lists, sex offender registry, and other third-party databases all in real-time, and tag records as “banned” to be alerted the second their ID is scanned

  • Institute contact tracing

    Take temperatures and create a time-stamped record for contact tracing; set alarms if temperatures exceed healthy thresholds
