Government

TouchStar solutions are in use in all types of public administration buildings, such as town and city council facilities, police & court facilities, ministries, parliaments, military bases and more where they provide security, access control and personnel management. From national to local, government

departments and agencies have to be open and accessible to the general public where required but also able to efficiently separate high traffic public areas from staff-only, restricted areas while providing effective security to all their users.

Access Control

With numerous entrances and access rights, it is absolutely critical to ensure the required level of security is understood and maintained. From restricted areas and sensitive data that must be secured and protected, through providing staff with undisturbed and protected places to work, smart access

control is vital to provide the necessary combination of control and flexibility.

TouchStar governmental access control can provide you with a secure, flexible solution to these requirements and more.

Benefits of access control for governments

  • Separate public and restricted areas in your access plan by differentiating easily who has access and when to such different places as public transit areas, specific service areas, individual offices, floors, or buildings.
  • Optimise the use of libraries, public access areas of public buildings and parking areas by employing the flexibility of the system to change access plans easily thereby facilitating the individual programming of certain installations for conferences, cultural events, etc.
  • If an emergency requires it, utilise lockdown functionality to help bring control to the situation.
  • Employ heavy-duty locks for high traffic doors that meet government requirements.
  • Establish flexible and secure distribution of access rights for specified areas within a building, as well as for other sites and facilities using the same credential as used at the main location.

CCTV

Our high-definition CCTV cameras are configured for maximum image resolution in all lighting conditions and can function effectively with colour or monochrome resolutions.

Operating as individual systems or as part of an existing security system, the TouchStar CCTV system could incorporate a wide variety of functions such as; remotely-monitored software & hardware with alarm management, remote access control, lone worker monitoring, live audio warning systems using network, ADSL and 3G transmission.

Our independent status means we’ll work with you to put the right CCTV solution in place so you don’t pay for facilities you don’t need and have peace of mind around the clock.

Time & Attendance

Using the TouchStar time & attendance hardware can be the key factor in better management of your employee working hours. We can help reduce administrative paperwork and wasted time by capturing important time data automatically. With high level reporting available, senior staff within the government can identify who is currently logged into work and where helping to resolve potential insecurities within any government building.

Benefits of our time & attendance systems

The benefits derived from the adoption of an automated time & attendance system will vary depending on your organisations precise working patterns. However, typical benefits include;

  • Effective data capture technology - A choice of input methodologies including fingerprint, iButton, Mifare, proximity, barcode, magstripe etc.
  • Reduce absenteeism and improve punctuality - Quantitative real-time data ensures problem areas and absence incidents are readily identified, allowing appropriate action before the situation gets out of hand or becomes a repeat pattern.
  • Simplified creation of schedules - The TouchStar time and attendance system can be configured and adapted to include reflect specific production cycles, working practices, flexi-time, shift work and holidays.
  • Integration with HR and payroll systems - Data can be exported direct to other business systems, eliminating the potential for error caused by data double entry.
  • Compliance with employment & workplace legislation - An automated time and attendance system will help ensure that workers’ schedules conform to Legislation relating to permitted working hours, compulsory break times etc.
  • Communication software – our software enables communication with all types of terminals if they are FAMS or IP protocols. It ensures the configuration is up-to-date, synchronises the time and date with the server and collects real time data when it is entered at the terminal.
