Why Labels are important

A strong understanding of who is entering the workplace is critical to maintaining a secure and safe environment. Labels can not only let you know who someone is and their context for visiting but they can be leveraged for smarter alarms and more secure access control. They also empower faster contact tracing if integrating Nirovision with other workplace cameras.

How customers use Labels

Know when new visitors arrive
For workplaces without a receptionist or where reception is left unattended from time to time, Nirovision’s customisable Alarms paired with Labels can notify you anytime someone with the Label “Visitor” arrives. This is done by auto-assigning Labels based on survey answers when checking in.

Open doors based on someone’s Label

Integrating with access control, Nirovision is able to grant or deny access based on Labels. For example, a workplace might grant access to a door for anyone with the Label “Staff” and deny entry to anyone with the Label “Visitor”.

Prevent cross-contamination between departments
Some food processing customers use Nirovision to be notified if two people with different department Labels are spotted in a location that is not a common area. Notifications are triggered immediately allowing management to respond in a timely manner.


Bring people back to the workplace safely

Coming out of lockdown, businesses have staggered staff attendance, usually by separating two different groups and having those groups attend the workplace on different days. With Nirovision Labels you can assign each group with a different Label and then set up notifications to know if someone turns up on a wrong day. You can also view an activity graph to quickly assess Time and Attendance by Label to ensure there is no cross over between groups.


Be notified for VIPs and those on a banned list

Rather than set up multiple alarm notifications for specific individuals, Labels allow you to set up one alarm for a group of people. For example, be notified anytime someone with with the Label VIP shows up or someone on a banned list enters.


See what days and times the cleaners were in

Beyond identifying staff, Labels can be used for other regular visitors such as security guards and cleaners. This allows you to filter by Label to see what days and times the cleaners were on-site.
