University of Missouri upgrades access control system

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Feb 24, 2010  ||   

The University of Missouri has improved access control with a combination of security software and equipment installations at its 24 on-campus residential life buildings with the aid of Matrix Systems.

Using Matrix System’s Frontier equipped computer workstation, the campus can lock-down exterior doors and eliminate outside threats with only a few mouse clicks. There is also an option for exterior doors to remain locked but only accessible with ID cards during special events such as spring break or Saturday football games.

Access control systems record all access attempts in case data is needed. When a student reports a card reading problem, the software can retrieve historical records for review so administration can determine whether the rejection was due to access exclusion or an ID card/card reader malfunction.

The system also allows remote access, so when administration receives rejected card holder incidents they can connect to the on-campus access control workstation via the Internet to investigate and fix the situation.
