Safety of employees and staff, as well as securing valuable assetsSafety of employees and staff, as well as securing valuable assets

The university needed an electronic access control system to provide a means of ensuring security and safety of employees and staff through identity authentication and movement tracking, as well as securing valuable assets and sensitive information.

A cost-effective access control system, capable of evolving with changing needs

They wanted to introduce an access control system that was cost-effective to install and capable of growing with their changing needs and that could provide a solution to the challenge of managing secured access over a number of sites or buildings, whilst providing multiple applications to assist in overall site automation and managemen

Robust and aesthetic securityRobust and aesthetic security

A robust solution was essential that would be able to stand up to daily use in a student environment yet still look stylish and contemporary to complement this new building.

The PegaSys system is also able to support existing technologies and credentials so that sites that already have systems using Mifare Classic or Legic can easily incorporate it.

The University was so pleased with the system that during recent construction of the new media complex they extended the access control scheme and installed PegaSys terminals on all the laboratories to control access and to protect the expensive and sensitive equipment.

The University is supported, serviced and supplied by ASAL GmbH Offenburg, an Approved Installer for PegaSys systems. Mr. Martin Gaß, Technical Operations Manager at the University and member of the board for occupational safety, attests to the high degree of reliability and user-friendliness of the PegaSys system and comments, "The close proximity and the fast, reliable service make this partnership very valuable."
