Sentinel is Scuba’s access control module which gives you the ability to restrict areas around your facility and give the membership categories of your choosing (Gold card or DD members for example) fast track entry into these areas which reduces queues at Reception and improves service levels to pre-paying customers.
Sentinel also allows entry for ‘standard’ members or Pay-As-You-Go users (qualified Gym Users, for example) who have paid for a specific activity at Reception or at a Kiosk. Once payment has been taken the member can then swipe their card through the card reader on the turnstile or door to the area and entry will be granted.
Any type of membership cards may be used with Sentinel and we currently have live systems using bar code, magnetic stripe, Mi-Fare, Des-Fire and HID cards and several sites that utilise dual readers with different technology (Des-Fire and barcode for example) on the same entrance point.
Sentinel can be installed in the form of discrete readers mounted on individual doors that open when a valid card is swiped, or turnstiles fitted at Reception to control access to the whole building
We work closely with the customer and give detailed instructions to make sure the install and configuration requirements are met.
