School administrators and security practitioners recognize that a school should be a safe haven for students. With a wide variety of people (students, teachers, admin staff, volunteers, visitors, vendors, etc.) and multiple entrances in an understaffed environment, it can create significant hurdles for an efficient identity management and physical access control system. Add in commonly required state and federal compliance and the same system faces an even higher level of complexity.
Entertech and Suprema combine a centralized application platform with biometric devices located strategically throughout a school or in multiple buildings in a campus setting. With biometrics, students and staff use finger or facial recognition technology for identification and to access facilities – and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have ranked Suprema as the world’s #1 finger touch biometric reader. Our customers have learned that a biometric identity management system based on true identity results in greater transparency and control that is critical during peak access control periods such as morning arrivals, lunch breaks and afternoon departures.
Entertech solutions also enable schools to limit access to secure areas and to define access permissions by time of day and day of week providing administrators with the ability to authorize and track access to specific locations for each student and staff member.
