TDSi Launches New Track and Trace Function to Help Customers Manage COVID-19 Containment
New module for security manufacturer’s EXgarde security management software helps all types of organisation track potential infection transmission, using access control data
John added, “A big part of bringing the COVID-19 pandemic to heel is tracking infections and preventing the further spread of the disease. We have already seen the likes of Apple and Google working on smartphone apps to track contact by infected people, but this requires individuals to actively participate. On the other hand, electronic access control systems do not just rely on people having the right device and app in place, they can track anyone who enters a secured area via their credentials.”
As a free addition to TDSi EXgarde installations, Track and Trace is perfect for any type of organisation and facility. From office and business premises (ranging from SMEs to large multi-national Enterprise), to factories and logistics centres, utilities sites, schools, universities (including multi-site and large campuses), and crucial hospitals and healthcare centres.
At any given time, EXgarde provides a quick but detailed view of how many occupants are within a designated area, with all the access events of any keyholder. Operators can use the TDSi EXPostOffice tool to get notifications of events (focusing on specific key holders and/or the readers that have been touched).
John concluded, “Governments around the world are setting in motion plans for testing, tracking and tracing as a way of bringing their populations and economies out of lockdown. Security systems can play a vital part in assisting in these efforts. TDSi is immensely proud to be assisting by ensuring our systems enable security operators to take a decisive lead in limiting the spread of infection.”
