Hey all. I have a customer that has HID prox corp 1000 cards. They want to know when people are leaving. They know after I explained to them that someone having a conversation near any solution wouldn't be any functionally different than someone passing through the door, so they're aware of that.
Basically, they want to know when people are leaving. They have to read in to get in, so they will know when people come in (minus potential piggybacking), but they want something on the egress side that will tell the system when people are leaving.
We have discussed read-out with anti-passback, read-out with delayed egress, but they have decided that they want a passive solution that works if the card is in someone's pocket. I will do an interface with the access control and video so that the card number gets timestamped on the video every time someone passes the reader. That way, if they're trying to figure out someone's movements, they can just do a search in the video system and see if they actually went out the exit or just passed by it.
I spoke with HID, and they will not guarantee that their long range readers will work in this fashion. Anyone have any other ideas?
Thanks a ton.
