Universities around the world all face similar challenges when it comes to security. How do you keep people safe in a vast, open campus?

There are over 10,000 universities around the world, the largest of which, the Indira Gandhi National Open University in India, has over 4,000,000 students enrolled. Universities vary in size, but most have one thing in common: They want to appear open and inviting to all, but they must work hard to make sure everyone visiting their university is kept as safe as possible.


What benefits can biometrics bring to a university?


Boost Your Security Solutions

Biometric access control ensures you know exactly who is on-site and where they are. Control your access points on and off-site, control access to restricted areas.


Reduce the Costs of Staff Wages

Biometric time and attendance system ensures staff are paid for the actual hours they work, and not the hours they are rostered to work.


Enhance Your Health and Safety

Get a clear understanding of where people are located. Unlike traditional access control systems that are based on PINs or RFID cards that can be shared, with a biometric access control solution, you will be able to know the location of everyone.


Maximize Course Attendance

Mobile biometric devices allow you to ensure the attendance of students at lectures and courses. Devices that are passed around during the course ensure that there are no bottlenecks when entering the facility.


Reduce the Costs of Heating, Air-Conditioning, and Lighting

Monitor the number of students attending a course or module. This data will empower facilities managers to allocate the right-size rooms appropriate to the number of students on a course at that time.


Know Who to Account for in an Emergency

The TBS infrastructure allows for easy integration of third-party systems, such as roll-call and mustering solutions. TBS devices allow users to process themselves on or off-site, or between two areas within a site. Therefore, in an emergency, a roll-call list can be provided so that you can ensure the safety of everyone on site.


Convenient Access to Members-Only Areas

Allow easy access to areas such as libraries and gyms. Users will not have to remember their access cards or sign in at receptions. TBS biometric access control allows for quick and convenient access to those areas restricted to certain members.


Protect Your Partners' Facilities

Many private-sector companies establish research and design centers on university campuses. This allows for the creation of valuable IP which needs protecting. TBS biometric access control ensures that only authorized people can access these areas.


Future-Proof Your Security Infrastructure

TBS is proud to be integrated with many of the world’s leading access control and PSIM solutions, so investing in TBS solutions does not lock you down to a particular security application. Seamless integration allows for user and device management from a single application.
