Security is a rising concern in the world today. From hackers accessing valuable information to intruders threatening the safety of people and property, companies are recognizing the need for better security. To improve the physical security of buildings and facilities, one of the best options is often the use of turnstiles to control employee and visitor access.

The door allows an individual to enter any building or public place and if electric locks and a biometric reader or card is installed and integrated with such passage openings, an authorized individual possessing the necessary credentials will only be able to enter. But no one can determine the duration the gate shall be kept open for. This shall allow for more controlled security and preventive measures against theft and for the well being of human safety.
