Access control in the CLOUD

by Adam Jacobs 6/9/2021

First of all, what does "in the cloud" even mean?  Is it up in the sky somewhere?  No.  It really just means that you are not hosting the data on your site.  You pay someone else (maybe someone who understands data storage and cyber-security) to store your information and maintain the equipment that stores it.  Lots of systems are using cloud storage, and access control is no different.  there are a few manufacturers that offer cloud management and information storage.  The best one we've found is Brivo.  What make it the best?

- First in the industry, more experience

- Easy to use customer controls, multiple ways to access info

- Small footprint on-site equipment (control 2 doors with something that looks like a WAP and mounts as easily)

- Expandable from 1 door to thousands of doors in multiple locations

- Best mobile management technology - iOS app, Android app

- Many ways to use readers - mobile (e-key), fob, card

- Highest cyber-security in the industry

- Easy to install and more flexibility than other access control systems

 

But what about the COST?  That's always a concern for customers.  None of us have unlimited budgets.  Well here's a way to compare a cloud system with a non-cloud system, as far as Total Cost of Ownership.

Flexible cloud access control - manage from anywhere

by Adam Jacobs 6/9/2021

What if you could delete a user from your access control system, with a touch on your smart phone?

What if you could let the furnace repair tech into the building, without being there?

What if you could add access control where there's not a hard internet connection?

What you had the flexibility of adding access control on doors where wires can't go?

 

Well...you can have all this and more.  Cellular communication for buildings that weren't planned with internet, or as backup to a hard connection.  Wireless reader/locks for doors that are spread out or wires don't make sense.  Mobile pass credentials (electronic key on phone), when physical keys don't make sense.

Our cloud access systems can handle 2 doors to 200 doors.

Multi-building accounts and multi-site accounts are easily managed in the cloud software.

Unlimited users, with unique permissions for each.

The best cyber security in the industry, from the leader in cloud-based security.

Change older local systems to cloud-based systems without replacing all equipment and wiring.
