MOBILE DEVICE INTEGRATION
FUSION MOBILE PHONE AND TABLET APPLICATIONS
Mobile Device Integration
Mobile Device Integration with FUSION Applications is enabled on both smartphones and computer tablets, giving them a high degree of portability, affordability, flexibility and functionality.
A person's identity can be verified and their movement and location on or off site captured on-the-move. For example, in situations where workers are bussed to site, their identity can be verified when they get on the bus and their location recorded and transmitted to the FUSION database whenever the bus enters or leaves the site.
Applications can work together over wired networks, WiFi and GSM, reducing communications costs and the requirement to lay down new network cable infrastructure. Using off-the-shelf mobile devices instead of special purpose terminals leads to significant cost savings.
The end user can employ the most convenient communication technology, including LAN, WAN, WiFi, Bluetooth or GSM.
FUSION employs off-the-shelf products that can be easily and cheaply replaced should they malfunction, get mislaid or damaged.
Mobile Friendly Applications
By combining FUSION's range of powerful PoE and network enabled smart card readers and controllers with mobile technology, Borer has developed a generation of powerful mobile friendly applications, including:
Mobile Access Readers used in combination with the FUSION Access Control system to provide an alternative means of gaining access for specific groups of people. A user is able to unlock doors or operate traffic barriers from a distance using their smartphone. Typical uses include: operating traffic barriers from a car without touching the mobile, or for a disabled person to open an automatic door on approaching it.
Mobile Attendance Readers used in colleges and universities to check the identity of and record students sitting exams or register their attendance in the classrooms or at lectures.
Mobile Smart Card Identity Verification Readers used to check the identity of cardholders. The cardholder's ID card is read and their details, including photograph, is displayed on the screen of the mobile device. Applications include: on-site identity spot checks.
Mobile Identity Verification and Location Tracking for passengers in transit used for bussing workers between collection points and their secure workplace or compound. It checks the identity of the passenger and logs them on and off the bus. When the bus passes through the site entrance gate, the identity of all passengers on the bus is automatically transmitted to the site attendance management system and the site roll-call is updated.
Mobile Musterpoint Readers used in a building evacuation situation to record people as they arrive at the muster point.
Mobile Lone Worker Monitoring Readers trace field maintenance personnel as they travel between sites, attending to equipment faults and issues.
Mobile Video Surveillance Display Terminals used to monitor sites and buildings from anywhere.
Mobile Video Surveillance and Incident Capture and Recording for security and maintenance staff who would use a mobile phone to record irregularities and events in real-time, for transmission to and storage on a Network Video Recorder (NVR).
Mobile Guard Tour Readers used to automatically track, in real-time, the movements and current location and status of night watchmen and security staff on guard tour. The system consists of the following components:
- Mobile phone - loaded with the Guard Tour app
- Bluetooth Beacons - placed at locations to be visited on the guard's tour of duty
- The FUSION Cloud - provides the connection for the mobile phone, enabling an exchange of data between the mobile and the FUSION Cloud
- Administrator's Tablet -enables tour administrators to plot a guard's progress as they proceed on the tour of duty, as well as exchange text messages with the guard
- Administrator's FUSION Workstation - allows tour administrators to plan the tour and communicate and exchange information with the guard during the tour
