A university has deployed an advanced system using optical turnstiles in order to attain a higher level of protection for its students, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Previously, students would simply hand their badge to a staff member who would swipe it for verification and then allow the student into the facility. This process presented numerous challenges including the inability to adequately deny entry, expedite entry to the gym during busy hours and more.
Now, every student enrolled at Liberty University is provided with an identification badge with embedded access control credentials to gain access to various Liberty facilities. The access control solution allows students to use one universal card throughout the campus.
The new turnstiles at the recreation center provide three dedicated lanes for entry and one lane for egress.
“We can lock the turnstile gates, disable them, hold them open, grant access along with numerous other operational options, to keep traffic flowing while providing security,” said Samuel Seaborn, Associate Director, Operations, at Liberty University. “The turnstiles integrate with Liberty’s access control system to monitor who is coming into the rec center and when, and helps ensure that only students and people with proper access are allowed into the facility.”
