Singapore university taps HID

Zack Martin   ||   Mar 06, 2014  ||   

HID Global announced that its networked access controllers and readers have been selected by the National University of Singapore Suzhou Research Institute (NUSRI) in China to enhance campus security and facility management.

The solution leverages the university’s existing TCP/IP network investment to deliver a web-based access control system that provides centralized monitoring and report generation, as well as the ability to establish staff access level settings and control the usage of facilities.

With dozens of geographically dispersed buildings that house expensive equipment, the school’s new access control solution includes HID Global’s VertX V1000 network controllers, VertX V100 door/reader interfaces, and smart card readers to monitor access to different buildings and enable advance reservations functionality to access key campus facilities such as laboratories, hazardous materials storage rooms and machine rooms.

Benefits of the new system include:

  • Increased security: Tracks control access restrictions in labs, residence halls and other areas, while improving reporting so the security team can provide building usage input for access policy decisions.

  • Facilities usage control: Grants access to authorized personnel within predefined reservation hours to ensure the facilities are properly used and to prevent accidents caused by unauthorized access.

  • Cost and time savings: Leverages the existing network and credentials to save overhead costs related to wiring and accelerate the installation time. The scalable solutions can be quickly expanded or adapted as the need demands.

  • Interoperability: Seamlessly integrates with video surveillance and fire alarm systems for multi-dimensional security management.
