When will the back door security door be installed?
Posted On July 25, 2021
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun installing back door technology to prevent intruders from gaining access to a building’s back doors, a security firm said on Monday.
The National Guard in New York City is also testing a system that locks the door to the building when a person walks in.
The system will be installed to stop the spread of diseases that can infect workers, according to the Associated Press.
The system was developed by the private security firm Kroll, which specializes in security and surveillance technologies, said in a statement.
The New York Guard has deployed the technology, which was developed under a $1.4 billion contract to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, according the AP.
Kroll said the technology can be used to lock doors when there are no other security cameras or security doors.
The AP reported that the system is not meant to be used by the general public.
But some experts said that would allow a person to sneak into a building and take a peek.
The technology has been used in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
The U of T in Canada installed a system last year to protect people from possible exposure to the virus.
The technology has already been used at the U of A in Canada and at the University of Alberta in Canada.
