LenelS2 delivers contact notification service
New service helps maintain social distancing policies and assess COVID-19 risks
LenelS2 introduced a COVID-19 Contact Notification subscription-based service for businesses and other organizations using LenelS2’s OnGuard or NetBox access control security systems along with LenelS2’s BlueDiamond mobile credential app. LenelS2 is a part of Carrier Global Corporation.
This new service complements LenelS2’s touchless building access solutions by providing BlueDiamond-credentialed users with the ability to assess their health symptoms, receive real-time social distancing reminders and anonymized notifications if they have recently come into contact with a user that self-assessed as being positive for COVID-19.
“The global pandemic has changed expectations for health and safety in the workplace,” said Jeff Stanek, President, LenelS2, in a prepared statement. “The BlueDiamond Contact Notification service empowers our customers with the tools they need to help address today’s challenges and provide greater confidence in a safe return to work.”
The Contact Notification service in the BlueDiamond mobile app identifies and communicates anonymized real-time COVID-19 risks and provides employees with a safer building experience while empowering building administrators with the data they need to monitor and manage potential exposure risks in the workplace. Contact Notification includes daily self-assessments for employees to report any symptoms or self-report their positive COVID-19 status.
The BlueDiamond Contact Notification service utilizes mobile-to-mobile Bluetooth technology to enforce social distancing in the workplace and provides real-time app notifications to employees who violate distancing guidelines.
The latest BlueDiamond app version also includes a variety of non-subscription-based updates to improve the access control and user experience. Two-factor authentication leveraging Touch ID, Face ID or a smartphone passcode can now be used as a method for validating a BlueDiamond mobile credential user. In-app tutorials provide users with an easy way to use other currently available app features.
