How Flour Mills of Nigeria Leveraged the Benefits of Turnstiles 

 

In today’s world, security is an increasing concern for many organisations. From the dangers posed by an influx of crowds to the risk posed by intruders, organisations across Nigeria and Africa have recognised the benefits of turnstile systems as one of the best ways of improving physical security and controlling access. Read on to learn more about the benefits of turnstile systems.

Unlike doors, turnstiles limit the number of people who can enter or exit on each presented credential, as well as controlling the direction of passage. To enter through a turnstile, a person must first present a valid credential. This signals the barriers to unlock and allow one person to pass before immediately relocking. Some turnstiles have enhanced detection features to recognize and notify of instances such as tailgating, loitering, and forced passage. An unauthorized entry attempt will trigger an alarm, notify the user and alert the control center of the conflict.

Benefits of Turnstiles over Doors

  • Improved Security: turnstiles provide superior access control by both detecting and deterring unauthorized entries.
  • Access Control Integration: turnstiles easily integrate with a building’s access control system, which allows turnstiles to work in conjunction with doors, cameras and other security equipment to ensure only specific cleared individuals are using the entry., as well as providing information like the specific identity, time, and location of each person who entered and exited the facility. 
  • Operational Flexibility: turnstiles enhance facility operations by streamlining the entry process. They accommodate a wide array of credential readers, allowing facilities the option of using virtually any type of media to authorize entry, including barcodes, magnetic stripe, proximity cards (RFID/NFC) or biometrics.

Access Control System

6 Ways to Improve your Organisation’s Access Control System

6 Ways to Improve your Organisation’s Access Control System

If your organisation has successfully used the same access control system for years, you should consider implementing an upgrade, long before things go wrong – now is the right time to evaluate your access control system and procedures. And if you do not have any in place, consider making it a part of your security plan. No matter where you are in your plan or system, there are six key things to keep in mind when looking at strengthening your organisation access control system.

1.Evaluate Your Access Control System Features

What do you need from your access control system, and does your current setup have that? Many facilities managers will go off how a system looks and verbal information, but do not really delve into the specific features dealing with the day-to-day challenges they face. Here are a few things you need to look out for.

  • The areas where a system is needed
  • Times it will be used to gain access
  • How many people will have separate access levels
  • How it fits into any other components you already have in place

Note that access is about convenience. As a result, organisations’ need to foster an environment to authenticate access, and let the right people in at the right times.

 

2.Determine Your Access Levels

Not everyone needs access into every area in organisation. Before deciding who should have what access, look at the organisation itself to determine what areas need different levels of access.

Do a map showing the entire areas of your organisation, break it down by making certain zones different colors based on the level of access or security needed. From there, decide what level of access that is required.

When setting up an access control system, you need to ensure everyone has the right level of access for his or her needs. It’s important to have a process and protocol in place.

 

3.Audit Who Has Access

Imagine an organization with 100 employees that have 300 active cards. To avoid an access bloat, managers need to either audit the system or set features to timeout the cards. This can include:

  • If the card is not used at the organisation within a predetermined amount of time, access is shut off.
  • Self-expire the card. After a certain period of inactivity, turn it off.
  • Connect the card to the contractor or human resources databases.

More so, for organisations that use fingerprint access control systems, they should always ensure that employees who have left the organisation (i.e resigned or sacked employees) should immediately have their access revoked.

 

4.Update Your Technology

Organisation owners and managers need to look at installing new encrypted technology. The bottom-line of putting in access control is limiting who can get in. If you are using older systems, it is time to upgrade. Organisations should always budget for a system upgrade every 10 years, noting that the technology can become obsolete quickly.

 

5.Perform Periodic Access Control Systems Testing

Just like you would test your smoke alarms in your house to make sure they are working when and how you need them, be sure to test your access control system. All devices should be functioning as expected.

Always pay special attention to little issues in your access control system long before things go wrong. Perform monthly to quarterly testing, as it is the only way to know for sure if everything is functioning.

 

6.No Tailgating Allowed

While holding the door open for someone might seem polite, it can be risky. The act known as tailgating is an important issue for organisation safety, and it can be hard to control. “The biggest weakness in access control is tailgating. Educate people in your organisation not to hold the door open for people.

Another way to cut down on tailgating is having multiple layers of security and access points.

In conclusion, controlling access into specific areas of an organisation has become a great concern. Organisations with adequate access control facility installed by security professionals enjoy a safe and secure environment. If your organisation does not have a security professional on staff, you can find an external, independent consultant like SecureTech Nigeria, a one-stop shop for major security needs.

SecureTech Christmas Security Tips

SECURETECH CHRISTMAS SECURITY TIPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE

SECURETECH CHRISTMAS SECURITY TIPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE

The long-awaited Christmas holiday is here and most of us will be spending much of our time outside of our homes and workplaces to have fun with friends and families. But we can only have a memorable Christmas and New Year holidays if we come back to meet our homes and workplaces unbesmirched. So, keep your home, business, and belongings in safe hands this holiday season by following our Christmas security tips below:

Arm Your System

Remember to arm your security system every time you leave work or home. Christmas is a peak time for burglary, with opportunistic thieves on the look-out for all sorts of goodies. Never leave your property unguarded. Take necessary precautionary measures to keep it safe.

 

READ ALSO8 Home Security Tips You Never Thought Of

Update Your Stickers

Make sure thieves know your property is protected by updating your alarm stickers. Contact us if you require additional security upgrades by SecureTech or CCTV installation and stickers for your residence or commercial property.

 

Update Your Security Systems

Make sure your security systems are updated by SecureTech. Not only will this ensure the best chance of preventing break-ins, but it will also secure you a discount on any security system you purchase from us.

 

Be Careful About What You Post Online

It is always electrifying to share holiday memories, but avoid posting too much information about your travel plans and other sensitive activities on social media. The wrong people may find out you are away from home and take advantage of your absence.

 

Don’t Leave Signs You Are Away

Never leave trails or signs that you are away – if you are going to be away from home for a long period of time, ask a neighbour or a friend to check on your property, and remove spare keys from outside.

 

Let There Be Light

Installing automatic sensor lights at the front of your house is not only a great way to deter burglars, but it will also welcome guests to your front door.

 

Avoid Fire Hazards

Keep some lights on when you leave your house in the evening. But remember that decorative fairy lights outside and on the Christmas tree are a serious fire hazard, so save the festive display for when you are at home.

 

Hide Your Gift Boxes

Did you just buy a new flat-screen TV for Christmas? The box it came in will attract the attention of thieves just as much as the item itself. Conceal and dispose of boxes in your recycling carefully.

 

Keep Track of Your Shopping

Christmas is a busy time of year. With so much to organise, it’s easy to become distracted! Remember to keep track of your shopping bags when you’re doing your Christmas shopping.

 

Watch Your Belongings

It might be ‘Silly Season’, but remember to drink responsibly and keep an eye on your belongings when you are out at social events.
