As businesses in Puerto Rico plan their reopening strategies, they are looking into preventive solutions to protect employees and visitors. To assist in this process, we explain 3 security measures for a safe and healthy reopening that will also take your security infrastructure to the next level in the post-coronavirus world.
1. Screen employees and visitors with thermal imaging to detect elevated temperatures.
More and more businesses and organizations (in all industries) are integrating thermal CCTV cameras to their physical security systems. Their temperature-based screening and access control applications detect elevated temperatures and can identify possible cases of infection once you reopen.
One of our favorite thermal solutions is MOBOTIX S16 (the most flexible dual thermal camera in the world). The S16 makes it possible to connect one or two weatherproof thermal sensor modules to the camera, covering different areas at once. Another favorite? The high performance MOBOTIX M16 TR (thermal radiometry). This camera features a calibrated thermal image sensor that enables it to measure thermal radiation across the entire image area, even down to individual pixels. Temperature values can automatically trigger an event from the camera (alarm, call, activation of a signal output, etc.) if they increase above the set level.
2. Minimize contact when reopening by implementing touchless access control solutions.
Now more than ever, we’re thinking about everything that we touch. Buttons, handles, rails, turnstiles…the list goes on. No-touch access control solutions can help mitigate the transmission of pathogens such as COVID-19, protecting staff and visitors every day and during emergency situations. Our top 3 picks for contactless access control are:
- AMAG’s Symmetry™ Blue Bluetooth Reader for access control with smartphones.
- IDEMIA’s MorphoWave™ Compact to scan fingers in 3D for touchless biometric access control.
- Alarm Controls’ NTS-1 sensor to open doors without direct contact.
Check out our previous post to learn more about these solutions.
3. Protect your business data and all roaming endpoints.
It is unlikely that all employees will return to the facilities immediately after your reopening, as this is a gradual process. While some keep working from home, it is necessary to protect all the roaming endpoints that are storing your business data. Most backup solutions don’t take care of endpoints, but ours do! Our data security solutions from Infrascale provide backup to all your laptops, tablets and smart phones – no matter where they roam. Add as many devices as your organization has (no limits!). End-to-end encryption technology ensures information is always kept secure. Having a safe and reliable data security solution allows you to smoothly restore operations, keep employees productive and avoid disruption with your customers, no matter what happens.
