Sharp rise in demand for IP-based access control systems during COVID-19 pandemic

Leave a Comment

The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a sharp rise in demand for IP-based access control systems and intercoms, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

The very high level of contagiousness of the coronavirus coupled with the high volume of patients admitted to hospital with the disease has increased the need to secure specific wards and departments. At the same time, GP practices, pharmacies and other healthcare organisations have also had to look at their entry provision to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.

There is also a heightened need for controlling access to the general public. As a result, demand in the IP-based video intercoms range has grown, especially for one-way, single button entry units where a member of staff can grant access from their desk via videophone.

The videophones can also intercommunicate and cascade calls to other locations if they are not answered. What’s more, an event call log can be viewed on the videophone with a video capture feature to see missed callers.
