Just like the term’s military origins, muster reports are a real-time list of everyone who is currently within a certain site or area. As part of a complete access control system, muster reports can optimize multiple functions within your building in regard to both security and safety. While they are most often used in dangerous or harmful circumstances, they are crucial to understand in case anything should go wrong.
In the event of a fire, for example, your space should be completely evacuated. Instead of guessing who happened to be at work that day to account for anyone who might still be in the building, you can pull up a live muster report from your smartphone that shows exactly who used their card to enter the space that day. You can then use this list to check who, exactly, left the office and report if there is anyone who didn’t make it out. It’s an effective, real-time safety tool.
