Streamlined, secure passage at every turn.

Evolving Security

Effective physical access control ensures that only those with authorized access rights gain entry to specific areas of a building. High traffic areas, such as stadiums, mass transit stations and office lobbies, require agile security solutions that also provide a seamless and convenient experience for the employees, visitors, contractors and vendors who are granted entry.

HID's turnstile solutions leverage trusted RFID technology to establish effective identity verification that allows organizations to eliminate barriers to entry and streamline passage through heavily-traveled areas.

Custom, Contactless Access One Turn at a Time

Turnstiles provide an added layer of control and security. Unlike a door where individuals can hold the access point open for others to enter or exit, turnstiles facilitate a “one-at-a-time” approach that’s measured and moves in a one-way direction. This fine-tuned control prevents “piggybacking” or “tailgating” and ensures only those with pre-determined access can gain entrance to a designated space.

HID RFID-based readers and modules are the qualified gatekeepers in this revolving realm. Decades of proven experience mined from the minds of experts the world over funnel into best-in-class access technologies  such as turnstile solutions  to provide a digital guardian for property entry points.
