Hollister Missouri school district improves security with Nedap
Hollister R-V school district has made important improvements to its campus access control system with the addition of new card access technology from Nedap. The addition of RFID technology prevents unauthorized individuals from entering city schools or accessing school buses.
The Hollister School District serves approximately 1400 students and has over 224 employees. To improve their security, the campus implemented Nedap’s solution for hands-free door access. Card access technology is nothing new, but Nedap has made critical improvements to enable extended range authorization on a passive credential, a credential that is the same size as a common proximity access card. To do so, Nedap developed a small form factor reader, the uPASS Access, that can easily mount on a standard door mullion, readily integrate with most access control systems, and read a credential from up to 2 meters (6 ft.). These performance capabilities facilitate hands-free access authorization making high throughput portals flow freely while maintaining security protocols.
As part of the project, Nedap also installed long-range vehicle access readers and tags for Hollister’s school buses. This technology ensures that only authorized drivers driving an assigned district vehicle can enter and leave the premises, preventing unauthorized vehicle exit or entry within school premises. The enhanced security system also creates a record of every event and documents which drivers were driving what vehicles on any given day. The system also prevents a vehicle undergoing maintenance from exiting the yard before it is released for service.

This fully integrated long-range security demonstration pilot is the first of its kind in the United States to include both long-range door and vehicle access technology from Nedap.
