  • The benefits of visitor access control include enhanced security, improved operational efficiency, automated compliance with logging requirements, and a positive visitor experience.

How Visitor Access Control Works

While there are many variations, a standard visitor access control process approximately follows these steps:

  1. Visitors sign up online using acceptable forms of ID.
  2. When they arrive on-site for the first time, they use their IDs to check in at kiosks and print temporary visitor badges or receive other temporary credentials.
  3. As guests move through properties, their badges or credentials are presented at access control points for authentication and to be cross-checked against stored visitor permissions.

In this way, visitors are granted access to approved areas while being denied access to employee-only areas, areas with proprietary information, and other sensitive spaces that are off-limits to visitors.

  1. Finally, visitor badges and other credential formats expire at specific preset times.
