Hampshire School Upgrades to Contactless Access Control

Hampshire School Upgrades to Contactless Access Control

Orchard Junior School in the village of Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire, where the staff pride themselves on their “happy, safe and purposeful environment”.

The school needed an easy to manage and reliable means of improving school security whilst allowing staff access to the main school entrance. The school had previously used a keypad system, which provided minimum security for approximately 30 staff, as children were copying PIN codes. The mechanical buttons on the keypad also meant that it was prone to failure and water ingress.

Nortech's access control solution was fitted by Southampton based security installer, Complete Security, to provide a cost-effective means of managing staff access and enhancing security. The contactless access control is Nortech's standalone proximity based integrated access controller and reader. It was supplied with contactless key fobs to provide a simple effective solution that was well within the schools budget. The contactless proximity technology used in the access control unit eliminates wear and tear, and the risks posed by easy–to-copy PIN codes. As the unit combines a proximity reader and controller it can be easily incorporated into an expanded system as funds allow.
