Multiple secure zones
Choice has designed, installed and commissioned a cloud-based access control system at a high security facility in northern England.
Requiring only power and connection to the client’s corporate network, the Vanderbilt access control system provides the ultimate in remote control by eliminating the need for server and management control technology on-site. The system is programmed and managed using browser-based interfaces on smart devices, primarily laptops/PCs, via web-based cloud access.
The system employs 27 door controllers, served by 32 card-reading units, restricting each user’s access to their appropriate, specific set of the multiple, secure zones within the site. Mifare Desfire proximity smartcards were specified for users as they offer good performance, security, privacy and enhanced multi-application support. The nature of the multi-tenanted location calls for a strict high security regime to be enforced and significant attention was paid to the anti-passback protocols of the access control system.
