Access Control Project With A Twist


Hey Guys,

I have a potential project that is bending my brain a bit.

A customer wants to set up an entrance door for controlled access
to the building. There is a double door but just one will be
converted to Electrified Panic Hardware. Plan on using a
Access Control System and install a couple of cameras.
One outside and one inside lobby.

Because of the mixed usage some will have keyfobs, some will have an
access code. So, a reader with a keypad will be installed.

Here is the twist. They want the ability for those without a fob or
a code to make a phone call to an individual cell phone and that
individual will then talk to them and view the camera and then
through a "app" on there phone press a key that will unlock the
door allowing access.

First I don't know of a system app that will do this easily. I was
wondering if any of you's guys had a thought or two??

Thanks for any input.

Les

I've done systems that are capable of doing that very expensive

Re: Access Control Project With A Twist


We've done projects like this. We use cloud based systems that allow remote and cell phone activation to open doors and allow access. You can configure the system to activate a camera (s), but we usually put in a separate CCTV system than can be viewed, again remotely so that someone can, when they get a call, bring up that cam and decide whether or not to let that person at the door in.

However these are two separate system, that may or may not be tied together.

For the access, we use Isonas, which is a licensed system. You can pretty much choose whatever CCTV system you want, as long as you have remote access to it.

and of course, all of this requires an active internet connected network.

Hi Nick,

Sorry, I can't say I would want to get into a custom
made solution.

Big meeting tomorrow morning. My first question
will be: What is your Budget??

The answer will reveal a lot.

Hi cwatbay,

Looking at their web page now. This is more in tune to what
I was thinking. I have been pointed to another that is somewhat
similar.

https://www.openpath.com/

More investigation is needed on all of this.

Thanks for the hint.

Les
