People and vehicle access control specialist Nortech’s Norpass3 provides access control at all access points to gyms, fitness studios, health clubs and more, ensuring only authorised members and staff can enter the premises.
Nortech recommends the use of its Mifare readers and smartcards, which have a dedicated secure access control sector.
The benefits of using smartcards with a dedicated access control sector is supremely improved security, as well as the ability to issue sequentially numbered cards to members, facilitating easier card management.
In addition, the same cards can be used for other Mifare enabled facilities, such as vending machines and fitness management systems.
Norpass3, the licence free software at the heart of the access control system, can run on any standard specification PC (Windows 7 onwards) and is quick and easy to set up using the built-in setup wizard.
It includes many features that are ideal for leisure centre membership access control including:
This enables staff to monitor people entering through a turnstile to ensure that the person entering is the valid cardholder. When an ID card is presented to the reader, the cardholder’s photo automatically appears on the screen of the operator/administration terminal.
A feature that automatically enforces time limited access to certain areas (for example where a member is allowed the use of the facility for a fixed number of hours each week).
Once a member has used up their weekly allocated time, they will not be allowed access until the start of the next week or until a staff member has granted an extension.
This feature can be used to ensure the number of members of a particular category present within a restricted area does not exceed a preassigned limit (e.g.for health and safety reasons), and to make sure the appropriate level of supervision is available. Whenever the numbers exceed the limit, an alarm will be raised to alert staff to take action.
Individual ID cards can be registered on the system so their use can be monitored in real time. For example, if a card has been reported as lost or stolen, its record can be set to automatically activate a video recording of the person using that card when it is used to gain access through a certain turnstile.
