Anti-tailgating best practices
Install physical barriers: Turnstiles are great for high-volume traffic areas, as they admit only one authorized person at a time. When used with Openpath Smart Readers, they’re a reliable way to enforce tailgating security, especially for larger enterprise buildings.
Install cameras and use a video management system: Video footage lets you visually identify tailgating scenarios as they happen. VMS like Milestone and Camio work alongside your Openpath access control system to detect when more than one person enters on a single credential in real-time.
Track occupancy with people sensors: Combat tailgating security breaches with people sensors that anonymously count people entering and exiting the building. Integrated with your Openpath access control system, you can receive automated alerts as tailgating events occur.
Set shorter unlock times: Customize your Openpath settings to discourage tailgaters by shortening your Entry Open Duration to only allow one person to enter at a time. Also, configure door Contact Sensors to alert you to ajar doors that a tailgater might take advantage of.
