Physical Access Control for Public venues

Whether you’re managing security for a shopping centre, convention centre, stadium, university, theatre or other public venue, controlling access can be a complex challenge. You’re responsible for keeping huge numbers of people safe, protecting property and ensuring different groups of people can only gain entry to the spaces they’re authorised for. All while ensuring a welcoming experience for the people entering your venue.

Arriving on time, every time

Typical access control needs

  • Occupancy control for high volumes of people and traffic.
  • Advanced functionalities such as predefined security-level settings.
  • Automatic authorisation management for complex access rights.
  • A system that’s easy to use and integrate with other systems.

Key access control challenges for public venues

High volumes of people & complex authorisations

More than ever, it’s crucial to control people flow and occupancy levels at public venues to ensure the health and safety of everyone visiting and working at them. But when traffic flow is high, it can be challenging to maintain safety and security without causing queues or bottlenecks.

Another challenge is managing the complexity of authorisations. How do you manage different policies for employees, contractors, visitors, cleaning teams, and more? And what if you need to regularly on-board and off-board thousands of people across many locations? How can you avoid this being time consuming and vulnerable to errors?


Integration with other systems

Access control is only part of the story. To ensure high levels of security and efficiency, your access control system must integrate easily with intrusion detectors, smoke and fire detectors, video surveillance and more.

And, to get the most value from your access control system, you want to connect it to other systems that manage visitors, parking, lifts, locks, the heating and the air conditioning, for example. You also need it to integrate seamlessly with your current, and future, IT and HR systems – however complex they may be.


Flexibility is needed – for now and the future

It’s difficult to know how your access control needs and risks will change in the future. Will you need to increase security? Will safety regulations change? May you need to protect more locations across a wider geographical spread? How might you want to improve the experience for users?

Because of this uncertainty, it’s crucial your access control system has the flexibility to adapt and work with new technologies. And you need it to scale easily – perhaps nationally and internationally as well as locally – to suit your needs.
