Managing the safety and security of a large state university system with 24 campuses is no easy feat. It’s especially complicated when an existing program operates on multiple, disparate platforms for academic and physical security.

The university decided to standardize the access control system and upgrade its wireless locking system to create a standard security management platform integrated among its campuses. This included a new system of wireless locks and upgraded IP cameras for the residence halls and some outside group facilities, such as child-care and student centers.

Looking to do a system wide upgrade, Johnson Controls, formerly Tyco Integrated Security, was brought in to help eight residential campuses move to a single security and event management platform to support their video and access control systems. The challenge would be converting hundreds of locks without compromising access to doors or presenting unnecessary security issues during the conversion process.

By integrating Tyco Security Products’, now Johnson Controls’ C•CURE 9000 platform with STANLEY Wi-Q™ wireless locks, we helped convert more than 720 locks in a dozen residence halls, impacting housing for more than 1, 200 students across five campuses. The switch to wireless locks and the C•CURE 9000 security management system improved the ability for programming and monitoring, while also providing easier use for campus operations and security.

Systems Installed:

        The wireless locks, which are mounted on the residence room doors, communicate with a STANLEY Wi-Q™ portal gateway — there are about 90 within the system — which in turn communicate with the C•CURE 9000 software.
