How to increase security with the “On-Site” visitor status
What the On-site status stands for
“On-site” is an optional status that sits between “Expected” and “Checked-in”, and allows you to implement an extra step in the entry process for your visitors.
Here is how the “On-site” status fits into the visitor arrival flow:
Typical use cases
“On-site” is flexible in how it can be deployed and triggered via the Dashboard, iPad devices, or via compatible integrations such as access control. What’s important to note is that only one status can be triggered on the iPad.
Below are three common use cases:
1. Security screening. Visitors may be allowed to sign themselves in on the iPad kiosk, which would set their status to “On-site”. Once your guards have completed a manual security screening, they can then switch each visitor status to “Checked-in” via the Dashboard. This extra step ensures that badge printing and host notifications are triggered only after the visitors have passed the check.
2. Distant security booth. It is not uncommon to have visitors arrive on premises a few minutes before they ever enter your lobby - strictly based on the size of your property. Guards at the distant security booth can then set the visitors to “On-site” status, via the Dashboard, after an initial security check. This ensures visibility on these visitors, before their self check-ins at the lobby using the iPad.
3. Access Control System. In this use case, Proxyclick is integrated with your company’s Access Control System. The visitor receives a unique QR code in their invitation email (status: “Expected”) that they scan at the iPad kiosk (if using our touchless check-in feature - they can alternatively manually check-in), which switches their status to “On-site”. At this point they may go through a check-in process for NDA, photos, badge printing, etc. They may then scan at the turnstile (or another designated checking-in access point) to be automatically checked-in.
How to implement the On-Site status
In order to add the On-site status, go to Settings > Logbook > On-site status and turn on the feature. This is where you’d indicate which status is triggered when your visitors register on the iPad (e.g., use cases above where Case #1 is “On-site” and Cases #2 and #3 are “Checked-in”).
