Touch free access using turnstiles is now a days key to many security applications. Turnstiles are a very simple form of access control, technically it is a barrier between uncontrolled and controlled areas. The zone you want to enter is controlled as it can be an area that connects to all lift cars or a playground which is meant for specific team members or a gym that is designed for the members. The entry to the controlled zone can use any means either by a proximity card, a barcode, a QR code or face recognition device or a finger access.
The readers are always secondary devices and do not mandatory come as a packages with the turnstile, it can be any third party device supplied by related vendors based on project specifications or recommendations or requirements.
Except fingerprint readers all other readers are touch free in nature, be it face or card or QR code, in all cases we do not need to touch the reader but show the authentic document in required form to grant the access.
