How good security systems
can help infection control

Security technology can play a significant part in helping to protect our health into the future. There are many new technologies that can assist in reducing the spread of disease. Here are some insights into the expanding world of security technology.

Here are some technologies available today:

  • Thermal Imaging / Fever Screening Cameras
  • Headcounting Cameras
  • Contactless Technologies
  • BioCote Antimicrobial Technology

Contactless Technologies

Many Access Control systems now support Mobile Credentials, so you can access doors using an app on your phone, rather than needing to use a swipe card or fob.

Contactless Exit Buttons

Press to Exit buttons that can be operated in a contactless manner. Simply wave instead of press.

Thermal Imaging /
Fever Screening Cameras

Thermal imaging cameras are the latest security devices that will help reopen the economy while keeping people safe from the threat of COVID-19. The cameras are used to scan temperature from a safe distance, and if a fever (a common cold or coronavirus symptom) is detected, the company can request further screening or deny the person entry altogether.

Antimicrobial Technology


BioCote®, a leading antimicrobial silver ion technology that helps eliminate microbes on product surfaces, and significantly reduces the level of microbes on locks by up to 99.99%. This helps to eliminate the spread of microbes around a building as microbes are not transferred from door-to-door by people as they go about their daily business.

Salto has introduced BioCote to their range of access control products to help support cleaner, safer more hygienic environments. To find out more about Salto BioCote, simply click here.
