Safeguarding Learning Communities
It’s the foundational rule of education. Students must be and feel safe to learn.
Physical campus security is a concern for every school. The challenge for administrators is finding solutions to manage visitor access and monitor the campus that are affordable, effective and least disruptive.
Our Top Recommendations
Visitor Management System
EntrySign™ makes signing in and out quick and easy. It records attendance of staff, visitors and contractors, plus it can record student movements. With the Back Office Suite, administration can monitor who is in the building at all times, look up historical information, generate detailed reports and activate an instant evacuation roll call in seconds. The system can also speed up the process by pre-booking expected visitors and using optional QR-codes for quick sign-in/out access.
Safeguarding in schools remains a high priority issue. The EntrySign™ background check feature scans driver licenses to verify identify and cross-reference with national sex offenders and criminal databases, which are updated daily to ensure accurate information.
EntrySign™ integrates with many popular school information systems making it simple to import staff and students into the visitor management system. Where the SIS allows, EntrySign™ can even push data to the SIS allowing student attendance to be entered automatically. Staff, faculty and students can be imported easily using CSV files or through Active Directory integration.
Our multi-format readers support most contactless card technologies. Facilities with contactless technology in use (e.g. for access control, cashless catering, library systems or managed print solutions), can utilize their existing cards or fobs in most cases. Supported technologies include Mifare, Paxton, HID, Indala and many more. The EntrySign™ technology team can analyze cards or fobs before purchasing to ensure they’re supported.
Self-contained kiosks with integrated RFID readers provide a control point for the sign-in/out process. EntrySign™ kiosks are designed to be freestanding with no physical install required but can be secured to the floor with the supplied fixing kit. They can be used with contactless cards, fobs and optional QR readers. Only one power and one data point is required and multiple kiosks can be connected together for higher volume access points. Desktop solutions are also available.
This cloud-based application provides evacuation and roll call functionality from any internet connected device. Quickly and easily see exactly who is on your site at any time from anywhere and initiate an evacuation roll call instantly. The interactive roll call functionality allows you to check people off, marking them as safe, and provides a clear visual indication of any persons who have not been accounted for. EntrySign™ LIVE is an optional service available as an annual subscription.
