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

by david 6. April 2011 12:12

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

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.

This blog entry is taken from our "ID Card Systems - Why Identify" white paper. Read the rest of the article in our Knowledge Center.
