In a year of social distancing practices and the desire for contact-free experiences out in public, touch-free, contactless security products have never been more popular. One of the most popular products on the market today are reliable, touch-free entry and exit points – and namely, push-to-exit buttons that allow patrons to enter and exit a building without touching a button (instead using QR codes, Bluetooth or specialised sensors).
More and more Australian businesses are making the switch to touch-free security products to make their patrons feel as safe as possible – but what exactly are these products, why are they spiking in popularity, and where should you start if you’re hoping to transition to touch-free? Read on for our round-up of all you’ll need to know about touch-free entry and exit point security for your business.
What are touch-free entry and exit point products?
Touch-free entry and exit point products serve to replace conventional ‘request to exit’ buttons or switches in public shopping centres, buildings or offices. These products can range from infrared exit sensors, touchless switches that work when people are in close proximity to them, or readers that recognise smartphones or QR codes via Bluetooth.
Why touch-free products are so popular
In light of social distancing practices and the new norms for limiting touch and contact in public spaces, many businesses and offices in Australia are adopting touch-free entry and exit devices to deter visitors and employees from unintentionally making contact with others who enter or use their building.
Furthermore, touchless access control measures have been proven to prevent the spread of pathogens that can potentially stay on surfaces for days at a time – and during a global pandemic, limiting the unintentional spread of these pathogens is incredibly important to keeping our communities safe and COVID-free.
Contactless Touchless Push to Exit Button
As more and more businesses across Australia are making the switch to touchless entry and exit point technology, we at Castle Security have introduced an effective, easy-to-use push-to-exit button. The Contactless Touchless Push to Exit Button operates by simply waving your hand within 5 to 20 centimeters of the sensor.
Made out of stainless steel, this effective push-to-exit button is IP65-rated and extremely durable, so it’s suitable to be installed outside. Being a standard switch plate, this contactless button can easily replace any building’s existing press-to-exit button and offers a simple solution for businesses who are hoping to adjust their entry and exit point security in a limited time frame.
