Electronic access control and visitor management systems should be top priority for school security

Prison Pass software helps streamline access

The ability to control access to a school’s premises and to thoroughly monitor whoever goes in or out should be a top priority in terms of school security, experts in this field have argued.

School administrators are starting to realize the fact that campus security begins at the main entrance, because, without proper control of the entry point, visitors can gain unchecked access to classrooms and students.

Readily available security technology, such as electronic access control and visitor management systems, can help officials take control of their campuses, while the number of schools with open doors and without any solution to monitor and control access is decreasing rapidly.

Tensor MCVS – the perfect solution for school security

Tensor’s Monitoring of Contractor and Visitor System (“MCVS”) comprises an identification system that uses paper printed passes and a method using these to track individuals and maintain a history of who visited and them.

These visitor management systems are designed to replace an existing paper based system or where no system previously existed at all. The system is simple to use, easy and quick to install and a good starting point for organizations that want to get a better handle on people who come to their premises.

It also provides proof of ‘due diligence’ in demonstrating that the business has a rudimentary system of managing visitors for health & safety purposes.

The key features of the Monitoring of Contractor and Visitor System are:

– The booking of appointments in advance and pre-booking of on-site contractors. As soon as an appointment is made, notification emails are sent to both the visitor and their host informing them of the appointment’s date, time and location.

– Companies that do not have a front desk Receptionist can use MCVS Enterprise with touch screen technology so visitors with appointments can book themselves in or out.

– Integration of MCVS Enterprise with a Tensor access control system to limit where visitors can go.

– Reporting system so that you can search on previous visits and perform basic analysis and reporting of visitor activity.
