Vaccination status and testing results layer on top of existing access control technology

Security solutions provider Kastle Systems said 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,

Kastle Systems also 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.

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 company's 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.

"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 Kastle chief executive Haniel Lynn. "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's 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.
