Triax Technologies Launches Access Control, Takes Jobsite Visibility, Safety, Control to Next Level

Sponsored by Businesswire

Technologies, Inc.
, a leading provider of technology for the connected
, today announced that it has added new access control
capabilities to its Spot-r platform, providing advanced perimeter
visibility to increase construction site safety and security and reduce
contractors’ general liability risk. With the new Spot-r offering, for
the first time contractors have real-time, end-to-end visibility into
worker location, safety events and activities in one solution – from the
moment they enter and work throughout the jobsite, until the time they

A key component of the access
control system
includes the Spot-r Clip, which now provides a
multipurpose credential for workers on the jobsite, replacing RFID tags
and badges for easy site entry and identification. These Internet of
Things (IoT) sensors that attach to workers’ belts are synched to a
worker profile in the Spot-r dashboard where supervisors can manage
worker certifications to ensure compliance with regulations, providing a
higher level of control over who is and isn’t permitted to access a

“Ensuring that only authorized people are on the jobsite is not only
critical for security and safety but also for compliance,” said Pete
Schermerhorn, president and CEO, Triax Technologies. “For example, New
York contractors need to ensure that workers have OSHA 30 training to
comply with Local Law 196 or face stiff fines. The Spot-r Clip gives
construction managers this certification information as soon as workers
enter the site. It also helps to maintain security when work is taking
place in public settings, like hospitals, schools, classified sites and
other locations where day-to-day activities are in progress. By
integrating access control with Triax’s proprietary network and wearable
clip, contractors can not only control site entry and exit, but also
monitor worker locations, providing peace of mind in these sensitive and
secure environments.”

“Site safety and security are critical to our operations,” said Nick
Lettire, president and CEO, Lettire Construction. “Spot-r access control
addresses both of these obligations, providing us with exactly what we
need: one device that controls access as well as monitors the location
and safety of workers onsite.”

In addition to site entry and certification visibility, Spot-r offers an
end-to-end platform with real-time safety notifications, fall detection,
evacuation alarms and equipment tracking and utilization. With remote
visibility, Spot-r is changing the way contractors manage resources,
safety and risk across their project portfolios. With the ability to
detect worker falls and communicate safety issues in
real-time, construction companies are improving injury response times by
91 percent, reducing the time it takes to evacuate jobsites by 72
percent, and helping safety leaders account for real-time worker
location during an evacuation.

Spot-r with access control is an optional, turnkey solution, providing
the physical turnstiles as well as software, readers, Spot-r Clips and
onsite services to setup Spot-r’s proprietary network and customize
worker profiles. Spot-r Clips, which are rechargeable and have a battery
life of four to six months, can be re-assigned to different workers as
