智能门禁系统助力防疫,不必安排专人测温

智能门禁系统助力防疫,不必安排专人测温

骆杰峰(Jeff John Roberts) 2020年07月27日
Openpath的门禁系统已经成为许多知名企业和机构的重要安全工具。

新冠疫情从许多方面改变了职场生活,首先就是员工如何进入办公室。初创公司Openpath的日益火爆体现了这种趋势。这家企业提供基于应用程序的公司和公寓门禁系统。

位于洛杉矶的Openpath成立于2016年,其最初提供的服务只是作为钥匙或门禁卡的替代选择。如今,Openpath的许多客户,包括达美乐比萨(Domino’s)、洛杉矶快船队(Los Angeles Clippers)和大型房地产公司等,都将其视为一项关键安全工具。近期,Openpath宣布完成一轮3,600万美元融资。

最近几个月,Openpath在其应用程序接口中集成了温度传感器。这意味着员工抵达办公室时,必须在一台自助服务终端上测量体温,一旦员工发烧,Openpath会拒绝其进入。

公司还可以使用Openpath要求访客签署数字证书,证明自己身体健康。如果访客拒绝签字,则办公室的门不会开启。

获准进入办公室的员工和其他人员,只要在门口或电梯里挥挥手即可,不需要有任何接触,也不需要从钱包或口袋里拿出安装了Openpath应用程序的手机。

Openpath的联合创始人詹姆斯•瑟吉尔表示,许多公司本来计划在2022年升级门禁系统,但现在都在争先恐后地进行办公室改造。

瑟吉尔说:“以前人们只认为Openpath是一种便利的新一代门禁控制系统,但现在它变成了必需品。”他补充说,Openpath基于云的服务意味着公司执行各种更新的时候,不需要技术人员在场。

Openpath还宣称企业可以将其服务用于限制进入特定建筑或房间的人数。在这种情况下,应用程序将跟踪进入一个空间的人数,如果达到规定容量后,将禁止其他人进入。

但这项服务的其他功能可能会令隐私权倡议组织感到不安。例如,Openpath能够集成雇主的软件,如G-Suite和Okta等,这样如果有员工被辞退,该软件会立即终止该员工的通行资格。与此同时,该公司与思科(Cisco)等视频服务提供商建立了合作,可以跟踪员工与谁一起抵达或离开办公室。

Openpath最近完成的C轮融资,由风险投资公司Greycroft领投。其他投资者包括Okta Ventures、LPC Ventures、Allegion和Sentre。

Openpath的创始人拒绝评价公司的收入或盈利情况,但他们透露公司营收月度环比增长了20%。

Greycroft的合伙人马克•特比克说:“[Openpath的]解决方案很快被市场接受。我确信他们会成为建筑行业领先的访问安全平台。”(财富中文网)

The pandemic has changed office life in many ways—including how workers can enter the office in the first place. This is reflected in the growing popularity of a startup called Openpath, which offers an app-based entry system for companies and apartments.

Founded in 2016, L.A.-based Openpath initially pitched its service as a convenient alternative to fobs or swipe cards. Today, many of its customers—which include the likes of Domino’s, the Los Angeles Clippers, and large real estate companies—view Openpath, which announced a $36 million fundraising round, as a critical safety tool.

In recent months, Openpath has built APIs that integrate with temperature sensors. In practice, this means employees arriving at the office must take their temperature at a kiosk, and if they show signs of fever Openpath will deny them entry.

Companies can also use Openpath to require visitors to sign a digital attestation they are not sick. If they refuse to do so, the door won’t open.

For employees and others who are permitted to enter, they can do so in a no-touch fashion by simply by waving their hand at the doorway or in an elevator—while their phone with the Openpath app can remain in their purse or pocket.

According to cofounder James Segil, many firms made budget plans to update their access systems in 2022, but are now rushing to retrofit spaces immediately.

“It was seen as a convenient next generation of access control. Now it’s become must-have,” Segil says, adding that Openpath’s cloud-based services mean companies can implement a variety of updates without needing an on-site technician.

Openpath is also pitching its service as a way for businesses to enforce occupancy levels in a given building or room. In this case, the app will track how many people enter a space and refuse admittance to anyone else if the space is at capacity.

Some of the service’s other features might make privacy advocates squirm. These include Openpath’s ability to integrate with employer software like G-Suite and Okta so as to immediately cut off access to an employee who has been terminated. Meanwhile, the company has also developed partnerships with video providers like Cisco to track which people an employee arrives or leaves with.

The new money Openpath raised from investors came in the form of a Series C round that was led by the venture capital firm Greycroft. Other investors include Okta Ventures, LPC Ventures, Allegion, and Sentre.

The Openpath founders declined to comment on the startup’s revenue or profitability, but did cite 20% month-over-month growth.

“[Openpath’s] solution has been rapidly accepted by the market, and it’s clear to me they will be the leading access security platform for the built world,” says Mark Terbeek, a partner at Greycroft.
