Before members of the public can do business at some state government buildings, they will first be photographed, screened and scanned by a new computerized guard.The device, a touch-screen kiosk, scans a visitor’s driver’s license, takes a photo and prints a unique badge for the visitor to display — all in less than a minute. The LobbyGuard system can screen visitors against a database of people who are considered security risks. And the electronic records of the visit, including the photograph, are stored on a secure server.(News and Observer)
