Reopening After COVID-19: 6 Best Practices for Safe Gate Access

assets1

The world is gradually reopening as the COVID-19 pandemic is brought under control through the use of vaccines and precautionary measures. The reality is, however, that COVID-19 is not going away any time soon. Even people who have been vaccinated have at least some risk of contracting and spreading the virus.

As a result, it is imperative for communities to take steps to make their communities as safe as possible. Access gates are one of the best points for policing COVID-19 response policies, but they also introduce risks by potentially functioning as a point of transmission. Consequently, it is imperative for communities to understand the best access management practices for keeping their guests safe as the new normal begins.

Cost Comparison: Gate Guard vs. Smart Gate Entry System

Throughout human history, the only way to use a gate to control access to a facility has been to employ guards who restrict access through face-to-face interactions. The problem, however, is that hiring a security team to manage a gate is prohibitively expensive in most cases. Additionally, human operators can be manipulated by cunning criminals, and they often make mistakes. Therefore, modern smart gate entry systems have been developed to control access to facilities using modern technology.
