Q.27
Ans:
Technology Up gradation
Gunnebo India Ltd has successfully commissioned IP based Smart Card
Access Control System integrated with our Entrance Control System i.e.
Tripod SlimStile BE as a part of the Campus Access Management System at
Vidya Prasarak Mandal (Thane College).
This is the first of its kind system to be used in Collages in India done by
Gunnebo. The college campus has nearly 7 streams of various degree programs
with nearly 15000 students attending.
The main task for the college administration was to keep a track on the
student‟s movement in and out of the campus. The attendance for the students
is also captured by the system.
The application software is used for central monitoring and full
operation of personal movement tracking and Access Control System.
In the College, we have integrated the Access Control System with our
Entrance Control System i.e. Tripod System and Vehicle Entry Boom Barrier.
All employees‟ personal information is in application server and also resides on
the smart cards used by the students and employees. For the visitor a separate
tripod lane has been created. When a visitor reports to the security in-charge,
the personal details of the visitor are fed in the database and also on to the
Smart Cards. The security then issues a one day entry card for the college
premises. Some of the important areas in the campus like the entries for
Research Center; Computer Lab and Library are secured with Access Control
System. In case if the student forgot to bring his smart card on a day, he will be
allowed entry through the Visitor Entry Door and he has to get his attendance
marked manually on the client software at the Admin block.
