Today, Tensor, along with their colleagues at YEM PTE LTD in Singapore demonstrated the latest development in their Visitor Management system.
With the assistance of Zoomtech, the largest turnstile manufacturer in Singapore, Tensor showcased the full integration of their MCVS Visitor Management system with Tensor’s Access Control system and QR codes.
Tensor’s MCVS already automatically generates a QR code for a new visitor appointment, which is emailed to the visitor.
Using the new features, once a visitor has booked in (either via MCVS or the new self-service SSVM touchscreen module), the visitor can then use the QR code to gain access through a door, turnstile, speed lane, etc. The QR code can be configured by the host to either allow one-time access through a door/turnstile or to allow access multiple times and/or on multiple doors.
The visitor’s access attempts (both granted and denied) are all reportable in real-time from within Tensor.NET but are also emailed to the host. If a visitor enters a particular zone using a QR code, then this is also recorded in Tensor.NET. This ensures that if the fire alarm is triggered, the visitor would be assigned to a particular fire zone for roll-call purposes.
The integration of QR code reading will be particularly beneficial to lobbies or reception areas when used in conjunction with the self-service touchscreen module (Self-Service Visitor Monitoring – SSVM). Visitors are now able to book in and gain access to a secure waiting area, all on a self-service basis. Two factor authentication is also available, using QR code and facial recognition.
Tensor Chief Executive Ashley Smith, who performed the demonstration, said, “The full integration of QR codes into the MCVS Visitor Management system and Tensor.NET provides an automated means of booking a visitor in and granting them access to a specific area. This is even more powerful when used in conjunction with Tensor’s new Self Service Android & IOS app (SSVM).
“QR code functionality has become a consistent request in both Singapore and South East Asia. Tensor has responded to this by not only integrating QR code reading into our Access Control system, but also providing an automated method of processing and allowing access to visitors”.
Tensor expects to see major interest in this development from their Singapore office which is Tensor’s regional Hub for the APAC market. In partnership with Zoomworks, Tensor is producing a package to upgrade existing turnstile & speed lanes so that they can utilise QR code reading in conjunction with Tensor’s MCVS Visitor Management system.
