Electronic In Out Board

Use Casesvg>

Brief: I want an electronic in out board set up.

The modern workplace is fluid environment. The model of fixed working hours is being phased out with things such as flexible hours and working from home becoming increasingly popular with the workforce.

While these newer models are great for employees, team leaders and managers alike – they can provide certain challenges.

Although digital calendars (such as Google Calendar, Office 365, etc.) provide a basic overview of appointments, annual leave and the like – they’re not comprehensive. As a result of this, it can be quite tricky to know who is actually in the office – meaning that time is often wasted looking for someone who, quite simply, isn’t there.

Now, in itself, that’s is a frustrating waste of time however, things become even more serious in the event of a fire alarm. It’s vital to know exactly who is in the building and who’s already clocked off for the day.

The solution? A good old attendance board. In this Use Case, we’ll show you how to set up a modern electronic in out board…

Solution: Using Loxone to create an electronic in out board.

The NFC Code Touch is perfect for implementing a flexible and intelligent access solution in commercial environments. Employees can enter and leave the building simply by presenting their NFC Key Fob.

However, the NFC Code Touch and Key Fobs can do far more than just access control. The burglar alarm can automatically be activated or deactivated when people leave or enter the building, for example.

They can also be used to create an electronic in out board.

When an employee enters the building, they’re marked as “Present”. Then, when they leave they’ll be marked as “Absent”. The status of the employees can be viewed in a simple dashboard which is made accessible to the relevant people.

If there’s a fire alarm, the electronic in out board will be able to tell you who was in the building when the alarm was triggered. Information that could, quite literally, help save lives.

Why you and your customer should consider setting up an electronic in out board?

Implementing an electronic in out board, is not about actively monitoring employees. Of course, it’s good to know who is and isn’t in. However, it really comes in handy in the event of a fire alarm – giving quick information to the relevant parties to allow them to see if everyone has been successfully evacuated from the building.
