‘The Guardian’ is a totally hands-free admission system that uses facial recognition technology to allow entry to families when they arrive at the door, with total security.
Designed by T-Scan in Australia specifically for childcare centres and early learning facilities, the contactless system is a new standard in frontline protection for staff and children in health and safety.
The Guardian is purposefully designed to:
- keep children and staff safer than ever
- keep tabs on everyone who enters the building
- control who can enter, on which days
- boost health by reducing virus transmission
- smooth the flow of traffic at drop off/pickup
- remove the hassle of forgotten pin codes

How does it work?
The weatherproof titanium terminal is mounted on the entry wall at adult height, and connected to the existing door locking system. “It doesn’t scan children, which helps with any parental safety concerns for child privacy,” says Chris Coppin, T-scan Director.
Access is only granted on acceptance of the person’s identity and confirmation that it’s their correct enrolment day.
Coppin says centre operators “love the security enhancements and easy operation for parents, as well as the visual statement that the centre is responding to today’s health and safety climate”.

Facial recognition to protect young people is revealing its importance, but it doesn’t stop at front-door security. The Guardian also helps centres reduce wasted time for staff, and sick days for both children and employees.
The key benefits include:
The cost of safety
One thing that surprises many childcare operators is the cost of The Guardian entry system.
Coppin says to keep expenses down for childcare centres and their families, they don’t charge any upfront cost at all for The Guardian.
“We look after everything for the centre, including centre contact lists and setup,” he says. “We install at any centre, anywhere across Australia. The Guardian is for everyone.”
