Contactless Access Control – The Solution of Choice for Enhanced Safety in the Educational Sector

Leave a Comment

Contactless access control solutions are likely to represent the solutions of choice for the educational sector in the near future, as the combination of contactless credentials and touchless access control hardware can help mitigate the risks posed by the COVID-19 outbreak.

It’s already a well-known fact that most universities and colleges closed earlier this year, moving to e-learning in many cases, creating unique pressure for students, their families and universities across the country.

While it’s unclear when schools will welcome back students, campuses need to be prepared for a new normal. Schools will need to prove that they can offer a safe campus experience, and contactless is the way to go, whether we’re talking about smart cards (proximity cards) or other authentication solutions, such as mobile credentials.

Touchless solutions can help reduce contact transmission by decreasing the number of surfaces people touch in a facility, which thereby helps decrease opportunities for exposure.

A common way to accomplish touchless operation is by pairing low-energy automatic operators with actuators or readers. Presenting a contactless credential to the reader can automatically open a door without an individual having to touch anything. A similar operation is performed when a person is leaving the building.
