The Knowledge Horizon Security Gates have a 3-dimensional read range – they can read items when held in any orientation, making them much more effective than the standard 2D gates.
They are designed to have inserts placed in
the columns so libraries can tailor the look of
the gates to their own décor or corporate colours.
The security gates provide an audio and visual alarm, and there is also an optional voice-recording alarm.
The security gates have an inbuilt data logger to show you the details of any items that have alarmed the gates.
A 2-way optional people counter provides valuable reports on library traffic and usage.
With the Knowledge Horizon Self Loan Station’s integrated DVD Unlocking Device, your DVDs can now be browsed, borrowed and brought home without compromising security or staff time.
The system uses OneTime™ DVD cases that protect both the DVD item as well as the RFID tag; so you can leave the DVD boxes on the shelves.
A mixture of books and DVDs can be placed on the borrowing pad – LED lights on the Self Loan Station guide the patron through the borrowing process.
An onscreen animation shows where to insert
the DVD case to be unlocked (it can be done in any orientation, avoiding errors or confusion).
The software is designed so that a DVD item cannot be unlocked unless it has been checked out.
Various payment gateways are available to enable the patron to pay fines and charges and is an excellent way to reduce patron debt. The following payment options are available to be integrated into the Self Loan Station:
The Knowledge Horizon Mobile Scanning Unit enables the library staff to perform a stocktake, to search for items and to switch the security status of items to “on”, without the need to remove items from the library shelving area or interrupt regular library services.
The Mobile Scanning Unit consists of a handheld wand plus a mobile phone – the two communicate using Bluetooth and do not have any external wires (other than a standard USB cable for data upload/download).
it uses a “butterfly net” antenna and can read up to 12,000 items an hour.
Alert Lists are a way for you to be alerted to items (such as those on a missing items or weed list) whilst conducting a stocktake. In the event that an alert item is detected, a message will be displayed on the screen and a voice will emit from the mobile device informing the user of the item details.
