What is XPressEntry?

XPressEntry handheld badge and biometric readers enhance Hirsch Velocity access control systems revealing new functionality that help safety and security professionals make the workplace safer and more secure.

XPressEntry handheld readers validate permissions and authenticate credentials or biometrics against the identity information on record in the access control system database from anywhere, record entries and exits where door readers are not practical or available, challenge credentials from within secured spaces, spot check permissions to deter tailgating / piggybacking, quickly muster employees during an emergency evacuation, maintain facility occupancy information, and much more.

  • Handheld Badge Verification – Superior security with handheld authentication to confidently control access to and manage any secured space plus ENTRY / EXIT tracking.
  • Emergency Evacuation Mustering – Ensure everyone is safely accounted for during a true emergency to improve evacuations, employee safety and OSHA / regulatory compliance.
  • Corporate Events & Training – Use existing security badges for access management to manage attendees and deny access when necessary to events and training.
  • Handheld Biometric Verification – Superior security with biometrics and multi-factor authentication to deliver enhanced identity authentication in high security areas.
  • Workplace Surveys – Pre-screen workers with questions and deny access when necessary to help prevent the spread of illness and to keep the workplace safe and secure.
  • Other Use Cases – Entry / Exit Tracking, Time and Attendance, Confined Space Management, Bus Entry Validation, Guest / Visitor Tracking, Remote Parking, Mobile Enrollment, and more.

How does XPressEntry work?

The XPressEntry system includes:
  • XPressEntry Server – XPressEntry's admin console for handheld device / system management and reporting, view access control activity and facility occupancy, and maintains a connection with any access control system. 
  • XPressEntry Handhelds / Clients:  XPressEntry’s clients run either on Telaeris’ rugged handheld badge reading device with a built-in RFID reader for any badge technology and biometrics and maintains a connection with the XPressEntry server.  

XPressEntry integrates with the Hirsch Velocity access control system and pulls all relevant access control information such as cardholders, new and deleted badges, pictures, access levels, areas, and more. XPressEntry handhelds validate permissions and authenticate credentials against this identity information on record in the Hirsch Velocity database and maintain facility occupancy information. 

XPressEntry records all activity occurring on every handheld device or client and pushes this information to the Hirsch Velocity database. Simultaneously, XPressEntry pulls any new activity from the Hirsch Velocity database and pushes this information to all connected devices. As a result, the XPressEntry Server, connected handheld and client devices, and Hirsch Velocity always remain in sync. Each XPressEntry client device stores this information locally on the device so it can continue to work offline if necessary and will sync once connectivity is reestablished.

The XPressEntry Server is constantly pulling the latest Hirsch Velocity information. The initial data sync may take a longer time for large systems, but subsequent syncs happen very quickly as XPressEntry only pulls new and updated information. Once the XPressEntry Server pulls this data, it immediately pushes the information out to all connected XPressEntry client devices. Activities recorded on one XPressEntry client device or data updated from Hirsch Velocity will reach all available client devices within a few seconds.  This makes the system ideal for Emergency Mustering or ensuring that only the correct people have access to the connected client devices.
