Secure Access Control with BOS
The Best Union System was the first system to offer integrated ticketing and access control. Since the beginning Best Union has been the industry innovator in access control solutions, offering both specialized and standard hardware for access control. With both cabled and wireless solutions, our access control devices can be tailored to accept any combination of required ticket media, including magnetic, bar-coded, chip card, transponders, wristbands, watches and more.
Access Control Devices
Our expertise in access control has allowed us to develop leading-edge access control solutions, and to seamlessly integrate with a variety of third-party turnstiles and hand-held units, and to use customized turnstiles casings when requested.
We offer completely integrated automatic stainless steel turnstiles that communicate with the BOS ticketing database in real-time to read a ticket, verify ticket entitlements, update the database and enable access in real-time. Our standard turnstiles are made with a heavy-duty stainless steel construction and equipped with an appropriate reader for the type of ticket medium used, such as paper tickets with bar coding or magnetic stripe encoding, PVC with magnetic stripe encoding or a transponder.
Our wireless hand-held access control scanners offer a cost-effective solution for venues that wish to perform access control without the use of turnstiles or want to supplement existing turnstiles or access barriers. Operated by an admissions staff member at each access control point, the scanner is used to read a ticket with entry entitlements, verify its validity, signal authorization or refusal for entry, and record the access transaction.
