EXTERNAL ENVELOPE Technology benefits for all


Challenges can arise when specifying tailor made external door access solutions that suit a wide range of users. John Hardman of dormakaba reviews the solutions available, and how technology can help specifiers identify the right option


A


ccess control solutions have existed for many years, however, it’s certainly the case that the recent rapid pace of technological advancements and innovations has increased the capabilities of products which are on the market today. As any specifier will know, no two buildings’ access requirements are the same. This is especially true of organisations and projects where multiple buildings are managed under one entity, such as university campuses, hospitality complexes or large shopping compounds. With a variety of offerings available, specifiers can find themselves lost in what seems like an overly complex set of solutions, however recent technology can ensure clients’ needs are easily met.


In the clouds


Cloud-based technology is one of the most significant innovations for access control. Utilising an online platform to manage user access across single and multiple sites, these systems require minimal investment in IT infrastructure to function and operate successfully.


Integration of new software based solutions can be costly, time consuming, and inconvenient to those using the site, especially in situations where 24-hour access for authorised individuals is required. For cloud- based systems, internet access is all that is required to get everything up and running, and provides a simple, centralised interface for managing user profiles and privileges. This is ideal for campuses and multi- building complexes, especially those with high turnovers (e.g. students graduating from university while new students enrol), as it allows tailored access to be established for different people or groups for specific buildings – so access requirements can be added, amended or withdrawn in real time. This also allows access to multiple buildings with one access medium – such as a smartcard, key card, or a fob.
