The access control manufacturer Inner Range is offering customers the ability to identify close contacts of anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19, or other infectious diseases, by generating detailed reports of where the infected person has been and who else has been near them.
The contact tracing report can be generated and shared to show which doors an infected user has passed through, how much time they spent in each area, what time they badged a reader and which other users were near them up to 15 minutes before the infected person arrived and 60 minutes after they left the area. A report is customisable and multiple variations can be saved so that operators have what they need, the product firm adds.
Inner Range general manager, Tim Northwood, said: “Organisations around the globe are struggling with the challenges raised by the Covid-19 pandemic. One way that we at Inner Range can help address some of these issues is by assisting organisations to design safer work environments for their staff and customers. Providing a robust contract tracing report will help organisations quickly identify users who could be at risk and interrupt the spread of infection.”
The contact trace report is available via Inner Range’s integrated access control and security system, Integriti, for customers using Integriti Business and Integriti Corporate software editions.
The reports can be generated and displayed directly within Integriti and displayed on the operator’s screen. The report can be saved in PDF, Excel, CSV, Text, Image or RTF formats. More advanced options include generating HTML, or creating everything needed for a MHL single page website.
The company’s access products can provide specific access permissions for each area of a building and include area counting to monitor and limit the number of users in a particular area. This is available for Enterprise-level Integriti as well as Inner Range’s Entry-level system. Inception. Occupancy thresholds can be set for a building, specific area, an office or room, car parks and lifts. Once the level is reached further users’ permissions are suspended until the occupancy count has a spare space.
All information about occupancy can be transmitted to the site health and safety manager for real-time monitoring and alerts. A report can be run at any time to confirm the occupancy status of an area.
