BluSKY™ Visitor Management

Alarm and Intrusion Management

Visitor Processing from Anywhere.

BluSKY’s Visitor Processing automates and streamlines the complex process of pre-authorizing and admitting guests to secure facilities, without sacrificing safety and security. Visitor Processing provides centralized management and control of the diverse populations that commonly enter facilities as guests. It incorporates tools to notify staff of expected guests and alert them when visitors may be on a Watchlist.  It provides professional, technology-enabled credentials, and creates a permanent record of each guest visit to the premises.

Minimal configuration and virtually no software installation is required. Users are easily imported and visitors are processed via the access control database.  Pre-designed or customized badge templates can be selected for any type of visitor. User Roles define which personnel can pre-authorize visitors, and which personnel can admit them. perform visitor pre-authorization.

Set up recurring visitor admission requests. Select visitors from frequent visitor lists. Import large visitor groups from a spreadsheet. Send visitors a PIN or credential ahead of their visit and schedule multiple day visits using only one request. Automatically check visitor requests against the Watchlists, including Predator and 3rd-party lists. Assign specifically tailored access rights for your visitors by selecting the appropriate access template.
