Vaccination status and testing results layer on top of existing access control technology
Falls Church, Virginia (March 22, 2021) – Kastle Systems announced today that it is providing property owners, tenants and employees with a new ability to add vaccination status as a factor to control access to offices and buildings, an important step in helping workers get back to the office safely. In addition, Kastle Systems allows for integration of testing results into its technology platform, facilitating another screen for granting access to workers and visitors to office buildings and suites and, when combined with its KastleSafeSpaces products and protocols, will help create the safest possible office environments.
Vaccination status can be verified by employees and visitors in the KastlePresence App or by the employer’s HR team on behalf of the employee through the myKastle web portal. This feature will allow building and office management to use vaccination status to determine access, consistent with each building and office suite’s specific set of policies, as they prepare for office occupancy to return to pre-pandemic levels.
“We are proud to be a leader in pioneering solutions in helping buildings re-open and helping tenants and workers get back to the office safely and more quickly. With 100 million Americans now vaccinated, adding an individual’s vaccination status to provide access to the office is a big, important next step,” said Haniel Lynn, CEO, Kastle Systems. “We are arming buildings and businesses with an easy and effective way to implement the safe return to the office consistent with the policies that work best for their specific workplaces, including considering vaccination status.”
Kastle technology is installed in more than 3,600 buildings and 41,000 businesses across 47 states and 14 countries. By integrating vaccination and testing data with a building’s access control infrastructure, Kastle offers additional layers of precaution for office workers nationwide.
Kastle customers can choose to enable this offering for their building or office suite. For more information, visit www.kastle.com.
