TAIPEI 101 is protected throughout with a full team of professionally trained security staff on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days per year. To protect the people and assets of this world’s landmark, TAIPEI 101 has installed one of the world’s most advanced, customized, integrated electronic security systems that are designed to provide constant control and monitoring of the Tower to help provide tenants and visitors with the knowledge that their safety is in good hands. The surveillance system has monitors and security facilities that will effectively transmit real time security feeds of all main entrances, elevators and public/common areas through an optical cable network.
Visitor Access Kiosk System (VAKS)
The visitor contacts the tenant using a telephone at the side of the information desk. With tenant’s authorization, the visitor will receive the proper permits to access the optically controlled gate. The system keeps a complete record and knows the number of visitors as well as the floors they are visiting. It eliminates the faults and hassles of traditional permits such as personal information leaks. In addition, visitors are verified by the specific tenants, preventing unsolicited visitors and improving security.
Smartcard Access System
The elevators and entrance guarding the TAIPEI 101 TOWER is electronically controlled by the Smartcard Access System 24 hours a day. All tenant staff must hold a programmed Smartcard in order to access the tower. On site workers, persons without access cards or invalid access cards must be checked by official personnel at the Information counter on level 1 to confirm their identity only then shall they be allowed to gain accesses to the tower as a visitor.
Passenger Elevator Security Mode
When a tenant or staff member wants to go to his office floor after normal working hours, he must swipe his card at the Elevator Card Reader to activate the elevator to arrive at his floor. Those without access cards need to enquire and register with the security guard at the information desk for a visitor’s pass, and personnel from the tenant’s floor must come to the lobby to escort their visitor to their premises
Usage of Elevators
Any personnel with tools, mail carts, trolley or delivering goods are not permitted to transport via passenger elevators.
Usage of Service Elevators
Service elevators are mainly for access to the loading area, deliveries and courier services. The service elevators are not for tenants or visitors. All tenants and visitors should use the regular passenger elevators.
