The SAS-System enables automatic, secured, controlled access to employees – who have forgotten their badge – and to visitors (such as for instance contractors) without the need of involving a security agent.
From the street-side, the outer-door of a 'SAS' can be opened by pushing a button. In case of doubt the visitor can use the intercom to talk with a security agent. The system checks and ensures that only one (1) person has entered the SAS, without human involvement. If more than one person entered, the outer-door opens and the kiosk requests the user to leave the SAS.
The visitor selects his/her language and selects if ' he/she is employee' or 'external visitor'
The system identifies the individual by requesting to insert the eID card or passport and/or to enter a unique, secret code. The authenticity of the passport is verified (details available upon request, subject to NDA).
The back-end system is checked securely using different methods (details available upon request and subject to NDA) for authentication. Possible back-end system include Visitor Management system, Access Control System, SAP, ..or whatever is being used.
Upon positive validation, a QR code is printed and the inner -door opens automatically. The visitor also receives the QR code by SMS text message. The QR code is valid for a limited duration and can be restricted to certain areas of the premises.
The back-end data-bases are updated (in, out, duration visit, Firelist, etc..) securely and in real-time.
To leave the premises, the QR code is used to open the door of the 'SAS'. The Kiosk permanently communicates with the SAS to control the doors.
The encrypted QR codes are secured (details available upon request and subject to NDA)
If authentication or validation fails or if the visitor is in doubt a live video connection is established with an Agent in a remote location. If for some reason (power or internet outage), a live video connection is not possible , an intercom telephone can be used to establish communication between the visitor and the security agent.
The remote agent can operate the kiosk and SAS over remotely and take full control, including printing QR codes, opening doors, etc..
