Convergint develops access control COVID -19 exposure tool

Chicago, Il

CERT was created in an effort to use card reader access history to help organisations quickly identify cardholders who were in close physical proximity to another cardholder positive for COVID-19.

Convergint’s Professional Services Group (PSG) has developed a universal reporting tool for tracking COVID-19 exposure and minimizing spread.

The COVID-19 Exposure Report Tool (CERT), developed in partnership with Detrios, is free to download and leverages access control card reader data to reduce the possible risk from COVID-19 spread.

Stopping the rapid spread of COVID-19 is the #1 priority for both governments and companies. The COVID-19 virus can be transmitted simply by being in close proximity of others via respiratory droplets, through physical contact such as a handshake, or even by touching surfaces like doors, door handles, and turnstiles. Once a case of COVID-19 is confirmed at an organisation, it can be very difficult to determine with whom an infected person may have been in contact.

Access control card reader history can be leveraged to provide data about infected people and their interactions. This data enables security departments and administrators to notify people who may have been in contact with the infected individual and take other mitigating actions to reduce exposure and maintain operations.

Convergint’s Professional Services Group has partnered with Detrios to develop the COVID-19 Exposure Report Tool (CERT), which leverages card reader activity to quickly identify potential COVID-19 exposure and minimize its spread.

CERT was created in an effort to use card reader access history to help organisations quickly identify cardholders who were in close physical proximity to another cardholder positive for COVID-19.

Time frames can be specified before and after a COVID-19 positive individual entered an area. Administrators can also receive a CSV export of those potentially exposed to COVID-19, with the ability to obfuscate COVID-19 positive or exposed individuals’ names, to protect people’s identities and calculate the magnitude of exposure.

Convergint’s CERT is a universal tool that may be used with the following access control solutions: AMAG Symmetry (8.2); Avigilon ACM (5.12, 6.4); Genetec Security Center (5.9); Honeywell Prowatch (4.3); Lenel S2 Netbox (5.1); LenelsS2 Onguard (7.3, 7.6); RS2 Access It! Universal .NET (7.2) and Software House C-Cure 9000 (2.7, 2.8).

Convergint PSG is also able to work with companies to see if there is a custom solution that can be developed for solutions not included in the above list.
