Oregon college ditches lock and key for hi-tech

Andy Williams   ||   May 26, 2011  ||   

Lane Community College, Eugene, Ore., is adding a key card system that will enable staff and faculty to use cards instead of keys to unlock doors and to get into specific buildings, according tot he student newspaper.

“This technology is in wide use around the world and it has many different functionalities,” said Public Safety Manager Jace Smith. “It’s going to help Lane be an active, engaged participant in the 21st century especially once we start expanding its uses.”

After Sept. 26, no staff or faculty member will be able to use metal keys on any lock on campus. The project will involve removing or changing all of the external locks.

Through the system’s software, individual cards may be coded to work during certain times for each building on campus.

Students won’t be provided key cards unless they are employed by the college.

“I think that there is a lot of promise for using this technology with students, but there has to be a commitment to the institution,” said Smith.
