We are upgrading our office to have badged security doors. What I would particularly like to know is if Keyless Entry systems exist or are of decent quality. By this I mean, I would like the doors to behave like the new keyless entry cars (you get close enough to the car with the key fob in your pocket and it unlocks).
I've found plenty of door badges that use fobs, but they all need to be within 10cm to register... I was looking for more like 1 foot. So not just a badged door, but one in which I don't even need to swipe
So my questions:
- Do these systems exist?
- Are they reliable?
- Would they satisfy HIPAA regulations**?
- Would they offer an API that would let us tie them in with Active Directory or some other central management.
(Also, as a development shop, if there is a "rough around the edges" product, I am more than amiable to writing a custom solution against an API or SDK)
** On the HIPAA note: We are a software consultancy, so we as an organization are not required to be fully HIPAA compliant (as the physical security aspects of HIPAA go) but we have several clients who are, so we merely need to "make a good case" to a HIPAA clients that our machines and the code on them are only being protected by more than a deadbolt on the front door.
