Access Control Mustering Guide

By Brian Rhodes, Published Sep 30, 2019, 12:03pm EDT

In emergencies, determining where employees are located can be critical for knowing whether they are in danger. Access systems can be used for reporting employee locations, also called 'mustering'.

In this guide, we examine the strengths, weaknesses, and cost of using access control for mustering, including:

  • The two types of mustering used with access
  • Manual 'check-in' assembly point kiosks
  • Using mobile readers for flexibility
  • Why area tracking often breaks code
  • Contrasting costs for both mustering types
  • Why stand-alone 'real time' systems perform best
