Openpath Uses Data Analytics, Turnstiles to Combat Tailgating

Published: August 31, 2019

Openpath, a modern mobile access control provider, announces its partnership with several companies to solve the issue of tailgating.

Tailgating, also known as piggybacking, is the act of an unauthorized person following an authorized person into a restricted area. It is an issue for many campuses, particularly hospitals.

Openpath’s access control solution allows anyone to use their mobile phone to open an authorized door, without needing to pull their phone out or open an app, by just using the touch of a finger or wave of a hand in front of the reader.

For tailgating, the company has partnered with Density, an analytics provider and Camio, a video surveillance platform, to give administrators the ability to respond to threats in real-time and immediately locate the unauthorized person to take preventative action, according to the company.

Additionally, Openpath has partnered with Automatic Systems, a turnstile and parking systems provider, to offer a mobile access experience while mitigating any attempted tailgater with a physical barrier.

Openpath also integrates with leading video management system Milestone. With Openpath’s VMS integrations, users have the unique ability to leverage the combined benefits of its mobile access system with video surveillance from Milestone and Camio to provide increased security and user experience in real-time from one centralized interface, according to the company.

Openpath’s VMS integration provides:

  • The ability to triage safety and security issues in real-time
  • Video monitoring of entries and exits across all locations, including the ability to view remotely from a mobile device
  • The ability to unlock and lock entries from a single dashboard
