Smart Access

Digital access control for monitoring and controlling access permissions

The prevention of unauthorised access to security areas is usually overseen by staff, but this round-the-clock access control not only results in high costs, but doesn’t guarantee 100% security. That’s where our Smart Access range comes in.

The Smart Access range

Our solutions offer high cost-saving potential, fulfils security requirements and automates the security process, ensuring peace of mind that you’re protected.

Digital access control for protected areas

Access Control controls access permissions to protected areas. ID card readers or remote controls trigger our Smart Gates to open briefly for access, and an optional sensor monitors correct access and can trigger a visual and audible alarm if needed. The included cellular modem guarantees remote access for system maintenance.

If required, the Smart Gate can have one, two or four gates and two opposing Smart Gates can be triggered to create wider access.

The Smart Gates can be operated via:

•  Remote control: for easy opening of the Smart Gate

•  RFID cards or chips that allow access to multiple people

•  Third-party card readers, e.g. airport ID cards (e.g. for PRM services)

Ensuring correct customer flow

With Wrong-Way Detection one or more Qmetrix Ranging Sensors (QRS) are placed on the ceiling or a door and used to identify people and the direction in which they are walking. If those walking the wrong way e.g. in a one-way system, a visual and/or audible alarm will be triggered. An additional option is a local or remotely controlled external alarm (e.g. in the terminal operations centre) that can also be triggered to alert staff elsewhere.

Optimisation of security controls for staff and crew

The security checks of staff, suppliers and crew members are essential to meet special regulations. A certain percentage of all persons must be checked with the metal detector, whilst those remaining are only checked for explosives.

The randomiser decides in real-time whether a person should be screened for explosives or at the metal detectors.

Our algorithm randomly determines whether a person needs to go to the metal detector or for the explosives test. A traffic light system indicates which way the person needs to go and Wrong-Way Detection sensors determines if the person has followed the instruction. If not, a visual and audible alarm is triggered.

The algorithm is unpredictable, cannot be manipulated and fulfils the set quota in the long term. It is permanently logged and available for analysis. The Screening Randomiser is approved for use by the German Federal Aviation Authority.
