Solution: Mobile and cards

The main role of Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) is to develop the education system in Abu Dhabi and promote a culture of creativity, sustainability and excellence.

“Nedap and EPM have worked together to meet every one of our requirements. We now have a smart, centralized system with each element integrated in a streamlined way. It’s enabling much closer, more efficient management of access and operations. And we feel reassured that we have the option to easily make changes and additions, as and when we need to in the future.” Mr. Walid Nsouli, Division Director, ICT & Smart Services at ADEK

Mobile and cards


ADEK was looking for a flexible, future-proof technology that would improve the security level and provide a more convenient and touchless gate and door access solution for employees and visitors. Until recently, all access points were equipped with fingerprint technology. Even though safety is a top priority, ADEK wants to give the employees and visitors a welcoming experience entering the building. Therefore, all entry and exits points needed to be replaced with touchless technology solutions that fit to the needs of the different user groups.


Nedap’s multi technology readers NVITE are selected to identify both employees as registered visitors. The readers are placed at the entrances and at the speed gates within the building. The reader enables contactless pedestrian access for employees via mobile ID’s. This gives them the choice to enter via their combi card or mobile. Through Nedap’s AEOS visitor management module, ADEK is able to pre-register visitors arriving to the building. Visitors are asked to pre-register in the portal and an QR code is sent to them via email. With this, the visitors are given a streamlined and touch-free access on the day of their visit.

Besides NVITE, Nedap’s long-range readers were selected for seamless parking access. By choosing Nedap’s vehicle and visitor identification system, ADEK has been able to meet all of its security and integration requirements. Touchless access has helped increase convenience and hygiene levels. Nedap’s AEOS has provided a future-proof solution that supports its daily operations, and ADEK is delighted with its flexibility and the innovations its new system incorporates.
