COVID-19 Tech for the Lobby and Access Areas

Preparing the Office for Workplace Re-Entry

Your lobby and access areas are the first line of defense in preventing the spread of germs in the workplace. They present the opportunity to screen individuals, control the flow of traffic, and minimize common touchpoints. Thoroughly preparing these spaces for the new normal will send a message that your organization prioritizes health and wellness for all who enter. The following COVID-19 technology systems can help keep employees, clients, and visitors safe and give them peace of mind.

Touchless Entry

Reducing common touchpoints can help safeguard against the spread of COVID-19 on surfaces. This poses a challenge for workplaces with high-touch areas like door handles, keypads, biometric readers, and elevators. There are a variety of touchless entry solutions that can be implemented in any size organization to help you comply with government regulations.

  • Minimal Downtime During Installation
  • ADA Compliant Options

Hands-Free Elevators

For those who work in multi-tenant spaces and high-rises, there are additional touchpoints that need to be addressed once you're in the building. The right solution will depend on the number of elevators and their capacity, the number of floors, and end-user goals. Smart elevator options include:

  • Relay-Based Configurations
  • Destination Dispatch Integrations

Wellness Screening

Screening people before they enter your space can identify those who are symptomatic but aren't aware. There are a variety of screening solutions, depending on your organization's size, needs, and budget. To keep your organization safe, the technology you select will likely need to be integrated with other systems to ensure at-risk individuals are appropriately handled.

Physical distancing is one of the best ways to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Enforcement begins at the entry points where you can control the flow of people and adhere to occupancy limits. The right solution will likely involve sensors, cameras, and digital signage to automate the process. However, many existing access control systems can easily be upgraded to provide this additional functionality.
