Underlying advanced management system
Technology controls, developed especially for the libraries, controls all components of the Anytime Library system. The sophisticated management system enables the automatic opening and closing of the library and full administrative features.
Access control with communication options
Custom-designed entrance computer identifies and registers the users upon arrival at the library. The users enter their PIN on the computer’s touch-screen after inserting or scanning their identification in the card reader. The touch screen at the entrance can display the registered user-name, inform the user of open hours and programs, and inform the user about any reason for rejecting entry.
Monitoring for a safer library
Camera surveillance as a part of the solution. This provides safety for the users and protects the library against theft and vandalism during the self-operated opening hours. Our team will work with you on the location and placement of the cameras to suit your needs and specifications.
Gain full control with the management package
Using the Management Application you can easily manage Anytime Library. Through the system you can access and edit your Library data including the opening hours, surveillance images, event log and much more. The management application ensures you full control of Anytime Library and all events in the unmanned opening hours.
Statistics module and management features
The management package contains several features that provide overview and insight into the Anytime Library system, including a statistics module from which you can extract data concerning the number of visitors at the library based on age, gender and time interval, and a PC-module which will enable you to automatically manage the library’s computers, technology and many other useful features. The management features will continually be expanded as a part of our service.
