As the pandemic continues to change the way our facilities operate, protecting employees, assets, and facilities has never been more critical. No matter what vertical your facility is in - education, healthcare, etc., it is essential to have a plan put together to keep society functioning as safe and efficient as possible. You may be thinking, "Where does technology come into play in this?" There are various ways that a well-designed, customized security system can help a facility navigate these unprecedented times. Whether it's reprogramming/adding additional components to an existing system or adding a new temporary or long-term security solution, LVS has dedicated the time and resources to put together custom security solutions for our customers and communities.
How can a security system help protect your facility and employees as we reopen?
Foot Traffic Management
As the reopening guidelines limit the amount of patrons in one facility, organizations will need to monitor foot traffic throughout their working hours. Having a proper video surveillance and video management software (VMS) can help keep track of number of people entering and exiting your facility. It can then be integrated into an access control system to trigger an alarm to notify necessary personnel that capacity has been reached.
Healthcare, construction sites, and other facilities deemed essential have already put compartmentalization, or the physical separation or sectioning off key areas, to use during the pandemic. This is a solution that can be implemented by an access control system to limit access to a certain area and control entry/exits.
Thermal Imaging Cameras
Thermal imaging cameras can be used as an effective tool in measuring the skin's temperature and identify individuals with an elevated body temperature (EBT) in public places; hospitals, airports, schools, etc. These cameras can integrate into access control systems as well, causing an EBT to trigger an alarm or door lock to notify personnel. As the CDC has recommended monitoring employee temperatures in hopes of stopping the spread of the virus, this technology will play a vital role in helping facilities navigate the reopening process and plan for the fall months.
