Pedestrian Entry Swing Gates

Pedestrian Entry Control Systems can use swing gates (or turnstiles) to control foot traffic in a facility. These security gates can allow authorized entry while denying unauthorized entry completely autonomously. Companies save money with a swing gate access control system in place because they no longer need to pay attendants at their entryways.

Swing gates are often used in high-traffic public transportation projects like at airports, subway stations, bus terminals, and train stations. But since pedestrian gates are used to control people traffic, for entrance security, and for identification purposes, they are starting to be used everywhere including retail stores, corporate office lobbies, or other secure areas, and manufacturing and storage facilities. They can be fitted with card readers for completely autonomous operation. The possibilities are endless and wherever access control is needed.

Pedestrian swing gates or turnstiles come in many shapes and sizes. Virtually any gate offered can be used for
pedestrian applications. There are:

  • Standard retail-style entry-gates
  • High-quality optical gates that offer a modern and technologically advanced entry solution.
  • Waist high turnstiles that are a maintenance-free solution in rough environments like the subways

Receipt Scanning Swing Gates

At busy retail settings like supermarkets,
warehouse-style stores, discount stores, and drug stores, gates or turnstiles help by controlling pedestrian how and deterring theft.

According to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP), more than $13 billion worth of goods are stolen from retailers each year (or approximately $35 million per day). Moreover, 1 in 11 people will commit the crime of shoplifting at some point in their lives, but only 10 million people have been caught shoplifting in the last five years. In fact, only 1 in 48 shoplifters are caught, and only about half of those people are turned over to police for prosecution.

With numbers this high, it is obvious that shoplifting is nearly epidemic in America. Some people think of shoplifting as a victimless crime, given that many retail stores (especially “big box” stores like Wal-Mart or Costco) have such a high volume of sales, but this is far from the case. In fact, the cumulative effect of these thefts is quite substantial. It’s not just a “cost of doing business” for many companies, as that cost is passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices to absorb the expense of shoplifted losses.

Retail security solutions, like swing gates or turnstiles, can help improve your company’s bottom line by controlling the entrances and exits of your business, requiring patrons to enter and exit through check stands and monitored areas, sometimes scanning a receipt, entrance badge or app.

In addition to preventing shoplifting, gates also prevent unwanted exit, and control the direction pedestrians flow through your business. All of these factors eliminate confusion and congestion and improve the overall morale of your customers, which can make them more inclined to spend money.

How do you know which type of crowd management service is right for your place of business? And how can you optimize your store for success? One way is to work with security experts who specialize in security systems and services.

Key-Scan Control Gates

Access control is a means of controlling who enters a location and when. Entry control is the physical barrier that controls access. The person entering may be an employee, customer, contractor or a visitor and different people have different restrictions on where they can enter, and when. Many buildings like to have an open lobby, and a way to secure the elevators and Key-Scan Control Gates is a great option.

A Key-Scan Control Gate System typically uses an identifier such as an existing access control system to authorize people to enter certain areas. They can be placed to allow entry past a sign-in desk, to ensure correct visitor logs and act as a second point of period security.

Some businesses that use Key-Scan Control Gates are:
  • Landlords
  • Retail
  • Gyms
  • Manufacturing

Biometric/Facial Scanning Gates

Biometrics are unique physical characteristics, such as your face, that can be used for automated recognition. The five most common types of biometric identifiers are: fingerprints, facial, voice, iris, and palm or finger vein patterns.

Companies are making their buildings more secure by combining physical security entrances with biometric devices, ensuring only the right people are able to enter. Either as a stand-alone or paired with a standard access control device, biometric devices provide an advanced method for uniquely identifying authorized users based on distinguished biological traits. Authorizing users based on these traits further mitigates the risk of unauthorized entry.

Metal Detector Gates

The biggest benefit of investing in metal detectors is keeping your business safe from harm and from loss.

Metal detectors are devices used to screen individuals for weapons or other concealed contraband. Swing gates can be integrated with Metal Detectors to offer intelligent self-serve checkpoints to individuals known to the system. This can play a specific role in security for detecting concealed weapons, without having a full-time attendant.

People Counters

As many businesses are gradually reopening their doors to the public, they are faced with the challenge of limiting and tracking the number of shoppers in their stores. Knowing how many people are in a given building might seem like an easy task but in reality, it can be a complex challenge. This is especially true when the purpose is to ensure the safety of staff or visitors or to optimize operations.

People counters are electronic devices that count the number of individuals passing through a defined space. The technology used varies from simple solutions using light beams, to more complex dedicated sensors that employ stereo cameras or time of fight sensors. And then there are video analytics solutions that can perform this task using regular video surveillance cameras. It is important to keep track of the number of people in buildings and facilities for security considerations, optimization of operations to efficiency in profitability.

One of the biggest challenges in the retail industry is measuring how many customers enter a store throughout the day. When an advertising campaign’s primary goal is to announce the opening of a new store, for example, foot traffic becomes the key performance indicator to track the success of the campaign.

People counters can help to evaluate and compare the number of people visiting stores before and after any campaign execution, and while initial sales may not be very high, its marketing effectiveness is considered high. When a decline in the number of sales is measured over time, simple tracking of the number of people who enter and buy something versus the number of people that don’t buy anything, can help to identify the source of the problem. This is commonly known as the conversion rate.

These seem like simple questions but space optimization is important for all industries and understanding the flow of people provides invaluable data for decision making.

A similar problem is that of corporations, government offices on university campuses with sprawling installations. How is the space being utilized? How many working spaces are free in an open-plan office? How is the cafeteria being used? Is the boardroom for 20 people on the fifth foor used?

Electronic Door Locking Systems

Are you looking for advice on installing or maintaining electronic door locking systems to existing or new doors at your business?

The strength and functionality of a commercial door lock system is what sets it apart from the locks you see in a home or apartment building. They are graded for the heavy use and protection needed in an office or commercial setting. A commercial door lock system grade is determined by looking at the durability of the components such as the commercial door strike plate, lock cylinder, deadbolts or latches, plus the handles, levers, buttons, or knobs. The grade is also measured by the strength of the locking mechanisms, and how well the system holds up over time. It’s important to note that different types of buildings and areas have specific compliance requirements for commercial security door locks and business smart locks.

Choosing the right combination of access control and commercial security door locks will ensure the safety, security, and productivity of the building. But how do you know which commercial door security systems you need? Talk with the experts at Dynamic Entry Solutions and we’ll provide advice based on the number of users that need access, the number of doors requiring a smart lock, and management preferences.

Automatic Sliding doors

When it comes to entering and exiting a commercial building, automatic doors are one of the leading advancements in entryway technology, making them a
must-have for any modern-day business or complex. Here are the main reasons to install automatic doors in commercial buildings:

— Safety: Automatic sliding doors enable the smooth and safe passage of people and goods. The right entrance solution can be a lifeline for any business or facility, keeping visitors and employees safe at all times.

— Conserves Energy: Automatic doors effectively contribute to energy saving and reduce annual heating and cooling costs. Doors open only when activated and automatically close to eliminate the doors being left open. They also prevent air-conditioning from escaping and outside air and dust from entering.

— Makes your building more user friendly: Since such doors primarily consist of hands-free sensors, they’re much easier to use for those who may need additional assistance. This makes your building accessible for those of all mobility capabilities and more accommodating as a whole. Automatic doors can even help staff maneuver equipment in and out of the complex, as they won’t need to hold the door open themselves.

— Hygiene: Because you don’t need to touch automatic doors to open them, they’re much easier to keep clean and sanitary, limiting the spread of illness between those who regularly use your building. As a result, patrons are healthier overall, and you’re less likely to see a drop in business traffic.
