Our RFID system allows for a thorough database of employee and visitor activity, and control access to designated areas or buildings. Every time a zone is accessed or a door is opened, the system records the activity and makes it available to managers for download and review via our management web portal. In addition to controlling access for your personnel, the Parking Control System can be integrated to control entry and exit of your parking lots, laneways, and loading areas. Every authorized vehicle can be assigned RFID Vehicle Tags to allow them automated access to your facility. This creates an extremely efficient process for your logistics, while the history is easily attained through the database in cases where security reviews are required.
