If you’re looking for an easy way to secure a building or to provide security for an event, then consider installing turnstiles. There are systems that can be installed in only a few moments and then taken down once the event is over while others are permanently installed, such as those at court houses and school campuses. You’ll find various designs of turnstiles. They include everything from tripods that have an arm that people walk through one at a time and an HID card reader wiring diagram with others that requires a card or certain type of key in order to get through. A turnstile can be placed outside or inside the building, but if placed inside, then it should be near an entry door so that someone can monitor the people who pass through. You should also consider installing a glass or division of some kind on either side of the turnstile system to prevent anyone from sneaking into the venue.
You can integrate the system with the building’s overall access system so that it can register those who need to use a certain type of card or key. Cameras can also be used for added security. When someone gets to the system, a valid credential of some type would need to be used to gain access to the building. If the credentials aren’t present, then the turnstile would remain locked. This is ideal for government buildings as there are employees who go to various departments and floors at different times of the day.
Guards who work at the turnstile will have a simpler job as the system operates itself most of the time. You’ll find that no one can get through a unit that doesn’t turn, which prevents entry to the building. If there are questions, then the guard can call for assistance to see if the person is meant to be on the property or not. Certain modes can be operational during the day depending on how busy it will be and how many people are available to work at the system to ensure added safety for the building.
