VisitorPoint from Maxxess is a smart visitor management solution that offers an easy but powerful upgrade for a wide range of users.

For those needing to replace a basic signing-in book for the first time VisitorPoint is an attractive, user-friendly solution with a choice of useful features. And for larger organisations looking for a multi-site visitor management solution, it provides control and audit features that are future proof, flexible, and designed to complement security, fire and building management operations.

It can be integrated with Maxxess software and eFusion range of modules, or adapted with a customised integration, plus it allows users to manage everything from visitor pre-registration, to SMS notification, identity verification and car park occupancy.

Putting more control in the hands of front-of-house teams, VisitorPoint allows pre-registered visitors to be viewed any time in advance. Visitor badges can be pre-printed for a smoother and more efficient welcome, and sign-in for large groups can be managed in seconds.

Visitors check themselves in easily and efficiently using either an iPad or the VisitorPoint freestanding touch-screen kiosk. The pre-registered visitor’s details are confirmed when they enter a reference code, passport number, QR code or any specified ID. A photo can be taken with the iPad or kiosk, printed onto the badge and/or saved to record. Visitors can also be asked to read and sign any non-disclosure agreement (NDA), health and safety or safeguarding instructions on screen.

The allocation and control of visitor car parking also becomes much more efficient as specific spaces can be easily assigned to specific vehicles in advance. Automatic email notifications and/or SMS messaging reduce the burden on front-of-house staff, with employees automatically alerted when their visitors arrive. The system can be set up so that both hosts and visitors receive a friendly reminder text ahead of the visit, at check in and at check out. Useful information such as directions and meeting details can be added. Hosts can also check out a visitor, helping front-of-house staff to maintain up-to-date site occupancy records.

For enhanced security, alerts can be sent when a visitor forgets to check out, or when a pre-specified visit is due. For senior security managers real time reports can be generated to show who is currently on site, where they are authorised to visit, as well as who been on site during any given timeframe.

The smart VisitorPoint badge printer allows individual badge customisation so that details can be easily changed and added – for example with WiFi codes, meeting room details and specific courtesy messages. This feature also makes it ideal for multiple tenancy sites, with individual badge branding and messaging available to each tenant.

Lee Copland, Managing Director, Maxxess EMEA says: "VisitorPoint is a highly flexible solution that can be used for both single and multiple sites. It allows a practical, easily managed upgrade from more basic solutions and it can be easily adapted to the organisation’s changing requirements in future years"

The latest addition to the Wisenet P premium camera series manufactured by Hanwha Techwin has the capability of two video surveillance cameras in a single housing

Click to visit the website...

Click image for the Hanwha Techwin website

The PNM-7000VD is able to capture Full HD 2MP images of adjacent areas with the help of two separate lenses. A 270° viewing angle is achieved when two 2.4mm lenses are installed, making the PNM-7000VD, which supports H.265 compression, an ideal solution for monitoring large open spaces such car parks, shopping centres and warehouses. Depending on the required field of view, system integrators can also choose to fit 2.8, 3.6 or 6mm lenses.

Bob (H.Y.) Hwang Ph.D., Managing Director of Hanwha Techwin said: "End-users are understandably looking for maximum value from their video surveillance system. Our new two channel multi-directional camera significantly reduces the costs which would normally be associated with installing two separate cameras, perhaps either side of a building or site, without any compromise on quality. It is an excellent example of how ‘We MOVE with trust’ by introducing innovative solutions which offer real-life practical benefits"

Feature Rich

The PNM-7000VD is equipped with the world’s best 150dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Lens Distortion Correction and Digital Image Stabilisation technology to deliver optimised images in every situation. It also has a long list of other useful features including privacy masking and direction, face, fog, virtual line, appear/disappear, loitering and camera tampering detection. Two SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slots enable video to be automatically recorded in the event of network disruption.

WiseStream II

The PNM-7000VD supports H.264 and MJPEG compression, but bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 99% compared to current H.264 technology when H.265 is utilised with WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image.

Attendees at the IMSA Forum & Expo in Orlando, Florida this month will be able to learn about the way that advanced vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technologies are helping to change the way cities move.

Click image for the GTT website

Josh Lehman (pictured above), pre-sales engineer at Global Traffic Technologies LLC (GTT), will address the IMSA Forum on Sunday 31st July at 1pm. His technical session, 'Transforming mobility through advanced V2I technology', will explore three communities that worked to solve mobility issues by using connected vehicle technologies.

Lehman said: "Connected vehicle technologies are creating new opportunities for communities of all sizes to solve their mobility issues. Traffic, transit and public safety departments can use data and technology to make smarter decisions that provide a better experience for transit riders, more efficient operations for agencies and safer responses for emergency responders"

GTT’s systems include industry-leading Opticom™ Transit Signal Priority (TSP) and Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) systems. Lehman will look at the way these solutions have been implemented in:

New York City: New York is leveraging existing infrastructure to create a centralized TSP solution where TSP is provided by a software application on more than 6,000 of its buses.

Laval, Quebec: TSP in Laval takes into account passenger loads and lateness to determine what level of priority each bus should receive at each intersection.

Montreal, Quebec: Multiple agencies leverage a regional, multimodal solution that centrally manages multiple types of vehicular movement, including public transportation and public safety.

The IMSA is the International Municipal Signal Association, and its members come from government organizations and private corporations, united in a desire to promote public safety. With a history stretching back more than 120 years to 1896, the IMSA’s objectives are to improve the efficiency, installation, construction, and maintenance of public safety equipment and systems by increasing the knowledge of its members on traffic controls, fire alarms, radio communications, roadway lighting, work zone traffic control, emergency medical services and other related systems.

IMSA's annual Forum & Expo brings together a wide range of attendees to learn, gain certification and explore the latest public safety products and solutions. The 2018 event takes place at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from 28-31 July.
