In education, IT, healthcare, or any other industry, it’s vital to recognize and control who enters or exits a facility, however, the subjects of physical access control and identification badges can be a bit confounding.
What is a badge entry system?
It is an electronic building access control solution that approves access all through the facility utilizing an individual’s ID as the credential. In this way, the identification is utilized for both visual distinguishing proof and access approval. Accordingly, this kind of framework is well-known for industrial and commercial properties.
You’ve probably seen badge entry systems previously. A lot of visual media depicts spies swiping ID cards to get to limited regions. But properties don’t need to have a highly classified status to fit the bill for a badge entry system!
Properties like schools, college campuses, medical clinics, and places of business ordinarily use badge entry systems for security efforts. Users essentially swipe or scan their ID cards to get to a building and the rooms inside.
The badge comes as both an actual card or a digital footprint on your cell phone – the last option comes with countless benefits over the previous one. The framework takes into account the production of custom printed access control credentials.
This lets a solitary badge/card or cell phone act as both recognizable proof and access control validation eradicating the requirement for duplication of credentials. The Millennium Badge Module permits you to create and supply your photo ID badges.
The badge module consists of several options to fit your needs: a software-controlled digital camera, a high-end imaging capture card, and powerful Ultra Software. Badges can include a bar code, digital signature, or barcoding compatible with our electronic access control systems.
The Badging & Access System is very user-friendly and customizable to fit most applications. Data in the system comes from personnel records and identification cards issued by the Federal/State government.

The well-established legacy of a physical keycard for identification being more unassailable than a digital keycard is no longer accurate. Mobile security has grown, and the security exposures of a physical keycard, which can be easily misplaced or cloned, still stay.
Similarly, mobile badging provides pervasive, comprehensive security and a personalized experience across all of a company’s platforms, whether on a browser or mobile.
While there will still be a role for the physical ID badge, Millennium Ultra has determined to enhance it by offering it a digital twin with features and specifications that other badging companies simply don’t offer.
