The CBORD Group Inc. and Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies have teamed together to integrate CBORD’s CS Access access control solution and Schlage’s CO-Series offline electronic locks.
Currently in use at the University of San Francisco and the University of Texas at Arlington, this integration with CS Access enables staff to manage online and offline locks within a single application, rather than in multiple programs.
The CO-Series offline locks offer the security of electronic access control for locations that are not fully networked. Available in two offline models, both of which are fully integrated with CS Access, the CO-200 stores privileges on the lock, while the CO-250 stores privileges on the magnetic stripe credential.
“The credential-on-card technology eliminates the need to visit a door to add or change users, and individual departments can grant access to their readers, reducing the work load of the card office,” says Jason Rossi, director of One Card and Campus Security Systems, University of San Francisco.
CS Access is also integrated with Schlage’s AD-Series electronic locks, which is designed to offer flexibility and scalability with online and wireless lock options, in addition to easily upgradeable reader modules.
