FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OTTAWA, ON, October 4, 2023 – Solink®, a leading physical security company for businesses, today announced its new Blocked Exit Detection capability, delivering even more value to its customers. Solink’s Blocked Exit Detection, uses security cameras on Solink to proactively detect when perimeter doors are obstructed and notifies users to take prompt action, mitigating costly fines and improving health and safety for employees.
Exit route obstructions cost U.S. based businesses more than $6.25M in Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) citations in 2021. Exit route obstructions accounted for approximately 25% of total OSHA retail fines in the same year.
Through powerful AI algorithms, Blocked Exit Detection uncovers obstructions at exit doors over an extended period of time and sends notifications to local or central users when discovered. Notification reminders can be set if the obstruction is not cleared within a set period of time.
Blocked Exit Detection is a software service that does not require the need for specialized hardware or new cameras.
