We have all been faced at some point by the visitor book wielding security guard, anxious to know who you are, whom you are meeting with, if you have a firearm or laptop and if so what the serial number is etc.
More concerned about making your appointment on time than the quality of your script on the tear out slip, you promptly rush through the completion of the form leaving the guard to their carbon copy. Would be thieves or wrongdoers are hardly perturbed by such a book and can easily take on the persona of Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck when they sign in fraudulently.
Imagine a mobile device connected to a visitor management system that enables the guard to scan your vehicle licence disk and then your national driver’s licence and link the visitor to that specific vehicle. Not only would the system in two swifts scans have all of the information relating to the vehicle like make, model, colour, registration number etc. but also the visitor’s identity number, the picture which is also embedded in the barcode. Using a series of user-friendly checkboxes the guard completes the process by capturing information related to laptops, firearms etc. and then by capturing your fingerprint electronically as acceptance that you agree to the terms and conditions of entry, allows you to enter the premises.
Whether you are a security company responsible for a corporate office park, a property manager looking after housing estates or even a dealer principal at an automotive dealerships responsible for infringements of the AARTO act and fines redistribution, Bartrans has developed the Dolphin 7800s enterprise digital assistant [EDA].
The D7800 is able to scan, decode and then decrypt the SA national driver’s licences, but can now also decrypt licences from Namibia, with others to follow. Honeywell’s Adaptus scanning technology drives the solution meaning that even scanning in direct sunlight is not a challenge for the D7800s.
Future proofing any investment in terms of hardware is also important, so the ability to scan and decode not only the current barcoded version of the driver’s licences but also allowing for the proposed new contactless smartcard driver’s licence is essential. With its locally designed clip-on you are also able to scan biometric fingerprints as well as contactless smartcards like the newly released national ID card by using the embedded iClass reader from HID.
Running the Windows Embedded Handled 6.5 operating system application are easily developed for the device and a large, high-resolution, outdoor off-axis viewable screen maximises productivity and ensures easy viewing of data in virtually any lighting condition. An Android version is also available if required. Multiple keypad options allow enterprises to choose the layout that best suits the needs of their mobile workforce. Adaptus Imaging Technology 6.0 enables fast scanning of linear and 2D bar codes in various lighting conditions, while an integrated colour camera enables seamless image and video capture.
The Dolphin 7800 also incorporates wireless technology, including a software-definable radio option that allows on-the-fly switching between GSM and CDMA networks, leading to continuous data coverage and lower device provisioning and deployment costs. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi provides access to critical data using the 802.11n standard, as well as legacy a/b/g protocols.
