The WHL Hockey Arena & Event Centre known as the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre has deployed a cloud-based access control solution from Active Witness Corp. 

A statement from Active Witness noted that the Victoria-based arena is preparing for increased activity as the province gradually eases pandemic restrictions. 

Active Witness’ system enables users to operate on touchless technology using their mobile credentials to access different areas of a facility. Users can also rely on facial verification instead of facial recognition.

As the company explained in a statement, once an end user’s email and name has been added to the Active Witness app, the QR-code will be accessible through the Active Witness mobile app or through a jpg. file that will be automatically emailed upon enrolment.

“Businesses across the world are struggling with managing the complexity of building security and health protocols. Sports arenas and event centres are one of the many industries where we feel our technology is a great solution.” said Rob Bakshi, CEO of Active Witness in a statement.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have such a well-known Canadian arena choose Active Witness to secure their facilities.”
