i-Neighbour : BLE-2 Deployment in Controlling Visitors' Car Entry & Exit for Gated and Guarded Community

Thursday, November 19, 2020 TimeTec 0 Comments

Even with the current advanced Visitor Management System implemented in respective gated guarded communities, issues caused by human behaviour still tend to occur daily. Guards are still granting visitors entry without going through proper registration in the system.

TimeTec BLE-2 is a device meant to be an intermediary between i-Neighbour guard panel and a barrier gate controller, intending to automate and monitor the opening of the barrier gate upon registration of a visitor through the i-Neighbour Visitor Management System using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. 

In this article, we cover topics as follows:

    1. Benefits of using TimeTec BLE-2 and the challenges it overcomes  
    2. How it connects to the barrier gate & i-Neighbour Visitor Management System (i-Vizit)

BLE-2 Benefits
Facilitate the workflow of security guards - Guards will no longer need to press on the push button to open the barrier gate after registering a visitor. With BLE-2 installed, the guards will only have to register the visitors via i-Vizit system and the barrier gate would automatically be raised allowing the visitor to enter.

The Challenges it Overcomes 
The push-button can also be locked to prevent guards from using the push button to open the barrier gate manually to improve security. This way, we can ensure that the guards will be compelled to register the visitors before allowing them to enter the compound. Hence, it prevents guards from manually pressing the push button, bypassing the system to grant visitors entry without registration.

How it connects to the barrier gate & i-Vizit.
BLE-2 I/O is connected to the barrier gate via a push button. Upon completing the registration process, i-Vizit will send a signal to BLE-2 via Bluetooth Low Energy network. BLE-2 will then trigger the push button to open the barrier gate.

Note: If some of the screenshots or steps shown here are different from the current system, this might be due to our continuous effort to improve our system from time to time. Please notify us at info@i-neighbour.com, and we will update it as soon as possible.
