The SAS-system

Fully Automatic Access Control System

What does the SAS-system do ?

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.

Benefits of the SAS system.

  1. No need for a Security Agent to grant access to employees (who forgot their badge) and to visitors. This represents a major saving and ensures a very favorable ROI.
  2. Enhanced Security and Full control of access (including ‘black-list’ for unauthorized persons).
  3. Improved service (extended access hours, VIP treatment, etc..)

This is how the SAS-system works, in 10 steps.

Step-1

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.

Step-2

The visitor selects his/her language and selects if ‘ he/she is employee’ or ‘external visitor’

Step-3

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).

Step-4

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.

Step-5

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.

Step-6

The back-end data-bases are updated (in, out, duration visit, Firelist, etc..) securely and in real-time.

Step-7

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.

Step-8

The encrypted QR codes are secured (details available upon request and subject to NDA)

Step-9

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.

Step-10

The remote agent can operate the kiosk and SAS over remotely and take full control, including printing QR codes, opening doors, etc..
