Why Introduce An Anti-Tailgating System At Your Premises?

Monday November 27, 2023

Anti-tailgating systems are designed to prevent unauthorised individuals from following closely behind someone who has gained authorised access through a secure entry point. This could be a door or gate. 

Also known as ‘piggybacking’, tailgating can lead to all kinds of issues, from theft to vandalism or violence against staff. 

Dacha SSI Ltd can offer several anti-tailgating systems for your site, including:

  • Access control systems which use methods such as key cards, biometrics (like fingerprint or iris scans), or PINs to grant access. They may have features like sensors to detect if more than one person is attempting to pass through on a single authorisation.
  • Turnstiles which only allow one person to pass through at a time. 
  • Video analytics which use cameras and sophisticated algorithms to analyse the number of people entering an area, flagging and alerting security if it detects multiple individuals trying to gain access with a single authorization.

These systems aim to enhance security and prevent unauthorised access by ensuring that only individuals with proper credentials can enter secure areas. They’re commonly used in places like office buildings, data centres, and other high-security locations.

Educating individuals about the importance of not allowing others to tailgate is also a vital part of an anti-tailgating strategy.
