PROJECT AT A GLANCE
ID Solutions Chooses Tyco’s Kantech hattrix Security Services for Multisite Management
With several office buildings and multiple tenants across 10 locations and spanning seven states, ID Solutions aimed to simplify the challenge of access control.
Prior to the project, each building had its own access control system; there was no way to monitor all building activities on a single platform. Furthermore, adding new users and badges to the system proved cumbersome.
ID Solutions identified Tyco’s cloud-based Kantech hattrix security service to monitor and maintain all properties from a single vantage point.
ID Solutions helped its client, a San Diego law firm, manage security for properties in several locations, each with its own access control, surveillance, and intrusion systems. The goal was to manage multiple properties, tenants, and locations from a single vantage point through an integrated system.
Integrated Access Control System Using a Secure Cloud Server
The hattrix hosted access control system simplified security operations by moving the system’s infrastructure and management offsite and allowing the customer to manage daily operations across seven states from a centralized interface.
- Hosted and Managed Security is an innovative, scalable, cloud-based access control solution that reduces infrastructure and training costs compared to traditional security systems.
- DSC PowerSeries Neo is a modular, hardwired system that works with a wide range of wireless devices and peripherals. This results in a comprehensive and versatile hybrid system suited for both small and large-scale commercial applications.
- PowerG Wireless Panels are the best in the industry. The PC1832 Control Panel is expandable to 32 wireless zones, connects up to eight supervised keypads with keypad zones, and supports WT5500 wireless keypads with TR5164-433 transceivers.
OUTCOMES IN DETAIL
After the success of the first 10 installations, ID Solutions is in the process of implementing the same Kantech/DSC integration for its eleventh property, with plans to do the same in a twelfth building shortly thereafter.
