The Case for Secure Environments in Business, Education, Healthcare and Government

Just as your DNA identifies you from a biological standpoint, your photo identification is a multi-functional document that identifies you by sight. A photo ID is required for building access, banking functions, driving a car and even picking up a package.

In many industries it's important to identify staff, patients, visitors and students. Not only are you identifying who is authorized to be on the premises each day, you are also identifying visitors who may, or may not, have a legitimate reason to be on the grounds at all.

There are many reasons to identify, however let's take a look at two critical reasons why your business or school should invest in an ID card system: security and efficiency.

Limited Access Creates a More Secure Environment

Shop New ID Maker PrintersNational Institute for Occupational Safety and Health research establishes an access card as a prevention strategy for workplace violence. A proximity, or what is sometimes referred to as a smart card, is commonly used to limit access to rooms, buildings and grounds. Other applications include payment or public transit fare cards.

 From a security standpoint, the staff or student would need to pass the card over a reader in order to access a gate or door. Proximity cards can easily be turned into a photo ID card by printing a digital image on an adhesive plastic card that attaches to the existing access card. This also saves cost during an authorized personnel change since the proximity card does not have to be re-programmed, only the adhesive ID badge needs to be removed.

Streamline School Processes with Student ID Cards and an ID Card System

by david 15. March 2011 08:30

Focus on School Security. For the month of March, the IDville team will be focusing on school security. All this month, we’ll blog about different ways to improve school security. Have questions? Email us or request a System Information Pack for more info.

Student ID cards can improve more than just the security at your school. The introduction of ID cards to your students and staff can help streamline various processes within the school, too.

With the proper ID card system and ID card software , you can add barcodes or mag-stripe encoding to your ID cards. These additional features allow you to connect your lunch program and library system. Students can use their ID cards to purchase meals and check out materials.

Schools find this system saves time, increases efficiency, and is safer for students, too. Students will also be more motivated to wear their ID cards as they will be required for checking out library books or buying school lunch.

Create Student ID Cards Time Savings

For example.  Northeast Middle School (NEMS) in Clarksville, Tennessee prints around 1,600 ID cards for its students, staff, and visitors each year. When Bruce Hester, NEMS Media Specialist and Librarian upgraded his ID card system, he experienced a significant time savings.
 
“The old process was multi-step using the laminating pouches and the cards," said Hester. "When we decided to upgrade we were looking to produce ID cards with ease, and we wanted better looking and more durable ID cards for the students."

The speed of the new ID card systemhas helped move registration lines along and saved the school labor costs. "Using the barcodes on the ID cards speeds up library checkout and helps staff identify the students," added Hester. "We also make ID cards without a photo for substitute teachers and visitors." This ID card system increases building security, leaving students, staff, and parents feeling more secure.

School ID Cards Improve Security

Focus on School Security. For the month of March, the IDville team will be focusing on school security. All this month, we’ll blog about different ways to improve school security. Have questions? Email us or request a System Information Pack for more info.

School security has become a top priority for all school districts in the wake of increased incidents of school violence. School districts can better protect students through the use of access control and school ID cards

ID cards can be synced with an access control system to restrict access into a school building. Access control only permits individuals with an ID card to get into the building. All other visitors are required to enter through a primary monitored entrance. ID card access control is common at colleges and universities, especially for dormitories. It’s becoming more prevalent at grade schools, too, as school districts recognize the multiple benefits of ID card access control.

Sample Student ID Card. See more ID card samples in our Sample ID Card Library.


Benefits of ID Card Access Control at Schools

 School ID Cards. ID card access control requires students, staff, and teachers to have ID cards with them at all times. The visual identification makes it easier for teachers and security to recognize individuals who do and do not belong in the building.

 Limited Access. Limiting access control funnels all visitors without ID cards through one entrance. It’s much more manageable for a school to monitor one entrance during school hours. A security guard or staff member can be stationed at the open entrance and watch the traffic in and out of the building.

 Visitor’s Entrance. By requiring all visitors to enter through one entrance, you can easily implement a visitor login book that will keep a record of visitors to the school. Maintaining a record of visitors provides valuable information and can help prevent incidents in the building.

 Cancel Cards. Using ID card access control gives you the ability to cancel or deactivate a card. Security administrators can deactivate the cards of students who have graduated, left the school, or are on suspension. The school gains significant more control over permitting students into the building.
