Sharing knowledge and experience makes for more informed choices when it comes to access control and visitor management systems. This viewpoint forms one of the cornerstones of Powell Tronics' business philosophy, and in this vein, Frazer Matchett from Powell Tronics' Durban branch recently presented a paper: "Getting results from access control and visitor management" at an Estate Security event at the Durban Country Club.
The 103 delegates engaged in lively interaction with Matchett, asking numerous questions after his talk and during the subsequent panel discussion. In addition, the interest was just as enthusiastic on the company's exhibition stand, which featured the Nedap long-range readers, PT-Guest and PT-SCAN software as well as the Impro Portal range. This is the second time the breakfast event has taken place and also Powell Tronics' second time as a participant.
Matchett says for access control to be effective, we need a way to identify an individual accurately. The weakest form of identification will simply identify an individual according to a rather vague category, for example, contractor company, colour of shirt and so forth. Correct identification needs some sort of pre-recognition of the person, and in all instances, we are forced to rely on that person to provide correct identification.[Full Story.]
