Kiwanis Village Lodge
PROJECT AT A GLANCE
An Elder Care Facility Needs Sophisticated Access Control and Security System for Better Protection
Kiwanis Village Lodge is a four-story care facility within Kiwanis Village that provides 24-hour nursing care to up to 75 residents.
For several years, the Lodge used an integrated fire, intrusion, and access control system to secure the facility, including magnetic locks, card readers, and door controllers, supplemented by a nurse call system and video surveillance. But the Lodge’s security system hit a road block when one of the door controllers stopped functioning.
Kiwanis Lodge planned to replace the old door controllers, and to migrate the entire facility to an IP-based access control system, all within a limited timeframe.
The Kiwanis Village Lodge wanted to replace its non-functioning legacy door control system with a highly secure IP-based access control management system. The lodge also wanted the installation to be as fast as possible to minimize the disruption to the residents’ everyday activities.
Scalable Access Control Solution to Enhance Security of Senior Residents
Kiwanis Village Lodge used Tyco’s solution to secure its 17 doors and manage the overall security of the facility.
- Door Controllers prevent the public from wandering into restricted areas. They make security and building operations more effective by integrating with alarm panels, HVAC systems, and CCTV systems.
- Security and Event Management enables businesses to better safeguard their infrastructures with customization options for their specific needs.
