HID Lunches EasyLobby Solo

A more professional, more streamlined, and more secure, automated visitor management solution.

What is it?

It is a streamlined version of HID Global’s successful EasyLobby Secure Visitor Management (SVM) software, and is designed to smooth the transition for the organizations moving from a traditional guest book to an automated, digital visitor management solution. In addition to facilitating a more professional image, organizations are able to increase security for visitors and employees by better managing who is  entering and leaving the premises. EasyLobby Solo provides easy registration and check-in, along with visitor activity reports that are simple to generate, to satisfy compliance/audit requirements.

Why adopt an automated visitor management system?

In many facilities, visitors are still registered using a handwritten paper log. While this method is perceived as quick and easy, it provides virtually no security and leaves visitor information available for anyone to see. Automated visitor management systems lend a more professional appearance, enhance security, and meet compliance mandates for the collection and auditing of visitor data.

Key Benefits

  • Enhance the professionalism of the enrollment process and visitor check-in
  • Provide additional safeguards by screening against felony and sex offender watch lists if applicable
  • Improve security by identifying who is in a facility quickly and accurately, especially in emergency situations
  • Conduct analysis/reporting on visitor data, quickly and easily

Produce Secure ID Cards with CardPresso

Prevent Fraudulent Reproduction


Ghost Images

Ghost image is one of the most common security elements.

To configure a ghost image, you can play with image opacity and negative color.
The image options are available from the entry-level edition.

Digital Signature

Another element that is commonly used as an additional security element to avoid fraudulent card reproduction is the card holder signature.

As well as the fingerprint, the digital signature can also be added to the card design and the database.
This feature is available from the entry-level edition.


A fingerprint is unique and difficult to adulterate. For that reason fingerprint is widely used when security is key.

Using a fingerprint scanner, you can have the card holder’s fingerprint automatically imported into your card design and database.

This feature is available from XL edition.

UV/F Printing

Invisible to the naked eye, but visible when pointed out with a UV light source, UV printed items raise the security of your card.

You can use static elements, like logos or trademarks or dynamic elements like name, photo or ID number of the card holder.
UV/F printing is available from the XL edition.

Have you considered preprinting a signature panel?

If you have ever considered running a signature panel first, then printing YMCKO on top, we would recommend proceeding with caution.

Our initial response would be that the signature panel needs to go on last, the main concern being that the signature panel is raised off the surface of the card, which may interfere with the print quality.

However, certain manufacturers have suggested that this is not the case. They have reported that there will not be any damage to the print head, however some adjustments may need to be made, or the quality will not look as good.

If you are planning on preprinting a signature panel, and then printing over it with YMCKO, the adjustments they recommend making for the YMCK sections of the ribbon would be to have a knockout in the design. This way the printer will not print on that area.

The main issue would be the O, or overlay section. If the overlay is not disabled in the signature panel area, then the overlay will not apply to the signature panel, but will leave a very faint, odd design around the panel where the overlay did not apply correctly. To prevent this, it would need to be specified where not to apply the overlay.

Overall, we would not suggest printing the signature panel first, but if required, these are some things to take into consideration.
