DC Building Security Company Adds ‘Health Pass’ Access Option

Falls Church-based Kastle Systems has added a health card option for tenants and building owners who use its access control systems. An app it is linked with allows people to upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

Kastle Systems, based in Falls Church, Va., Has added a health card option for tenants and building owners who use its access control systems.

Kastle has partnered with CLEAR, the airport screening service provider, for the Building and Office Health Pass for employees.

The app links the verified identity of users to health information related to COVID-19, including vaccine verification and test results. It links this data to Kastle’s building and office entrance systems to authorize or restrict access to buildings or office suites.

Health Pass, which CLEAR started rolling out last summer, also syncs with the Apple Health app.

“Kastle Systems and CLEAR provide an important technology solution for businesses looking for a simple and efficient way to administer and enforce office health and safety policies with minimal administrative overhead,” said Mark Ein, president of Kastle Systems.

The app is modular, which means office owners or tenants can decide what requirements need to be met for entry.

While Health Pass is currently limited to verified employees, Kastle Systems says it will eventually include apps for visitors and vendors.

Kastle Systems serves approximately 1,200 buildings in the DC area, which is its largest market. He did not immediately state how many tenants in the DC area initially signed up for the addition of the health pass.

CLEAR’s preselected access service is used by more than 50 venues, such as airports, including the three DC area airports, and other venues, including sports stadiums, such as Capital One Arena in DC. CLEAR has over eight million registered users.

“From stadiums to small restaurants, Health Pass helps businesses of all sizes create safer environments and stay open,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of CLEAR.
