Contact Tracing in the Security Industry

May 26, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Identiv, a global provider of physical security and secure identification, is allowing offices everywhere to re-open through the use of one of their many products. Could this be the solution for offices world-wide?

Hirsch Velocity Software

What if an asymptomatic person enters a building, who is later found to be symptomatic of an illness? Hirsch Velocity Software utilizes contact tracing technology and can pull a report of everyone who entered through the same door. This tracking system enables those monitoring it to notify the people at-risk so they can either get tested or self-quarantine.

“While this is useful during the days of COVID-19, it can also be used for other applications, such as the seasonal influenza.” says Mark Allen, Identiv’s general manager. This means your office can be proactive in responding to potential outbreaks, while simultaneously providing your employees with the peace of mind that there are measures in place to keep them safe and limit the spread of illness.

The Future

While Identiv isn’t the first contact tracing software, many companies have been searching for a way to implement similar technology in their day-to-day lives. This could be a phenomenal success, and lead to the future of the handling of diseases.

Velocity’s software not only could change the game of contact tracing, but it also offers features such as controlling doors, gates, turnstiles, elevators, other equipment, monitors users as they move around a facility, prevents unwanted access, and helps maintain compliance. The applications of this software are truly endless, and could be the solution that we all need during this unprecedented time.
