The HID Global EasyLobby® Secure Visitor Management software is an easy to use and install application for tracking visitors and employees. EasyLobby SVM™ is easily scaled to support hundreds of stations in real-time monitoring, background checks, generating audit reports, and printing/scanning IDs.

EasyLobby™ can be customized to run as an automated kiosk, send email/SMS message/text security alerts and a variety of additional visitor/employee management functions.

Biometric fingerprint readers and IRIS recognition can be implemented to further deepen authentication and streamline the check-in process.

EasyLobby SVM’s versatility can be effective for creating an additional security layer at schools/universities, commercial/government high-rise buildings or it can be customized for employee badge scan/print service for daily check-in and check-out.
