Visitor Access Control


What is visitor access control?

Effective visitor access control is a crucial part of strengthening office security. It can be delivered by building access control systems and visitor management systems, using databases and access barriers to prevent unwanted visitors from entering your facilities.

With effective visitor access management, you can control visitors’ access to your building or restrict certain areas for different types of visitors. 

What are the building access control systems?

Barrier/Turnstile access

Turnstile access control systems only allow one person to pass at a time with a authorised pass, QR code, or similar.


RFID security access control system

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a wireless technology that can be used to develop building/ office access control systems. Employees can use a key card or fob to enter certain areas. If integrated with a specific printer, it can automatically print visitor access RFID security access cards.


5 Approaches of Visitor Access Control

1. Health screening

Visitor management systems enable visitors' pre-registration process, and require visitors to complete a self-health certification for COVID19.


2. Visitor pass printing

Automatically print visitor identification passes during the contactless sign in.


3. Watchlist/Blacklist monitoring

Check visitors against industry and organisation watchlists and only allow entry to those that match your criteria. Subtle, automatic alerts are sent if a visitor has been placed on a watchlist, to ensure a smooth resolution.

4. Photo ID printing

Vgreet’s built-in camera can take photos of visitors for identification purposes and print these images onto a visitor pass.


5. Visitor ID verification

Screen visitors’ IDs during the check-in process with facial recognition to match visitors to an existing database.

Why should we use integrated visitor access control systems?


1. Customise access based on visitor type

An integrated visitor access control system means visitor movements can be tracked and different levels of entry can be managed easily with your visitor entry management system.


2. Digitally track visitors

Synchronise visitor details with building access control systems. Know who is in your building at any time and easily access this information in real-time during emergency situations.


3. 24/7 Building Security

24/7 monitoring of building safety and visitor access control without the need for manning 24/7 but with full security and digital control. The security team can access camera technology to monitor reception areas.


4. Automatic visitor check out

Automatically check visitors out when they are leaving the building, saving time and improving the efficiency of your workplace.
