Challenge: Disparate security systems

With three buildings equipped with different access control systems, the Clinton-Macomb Public Library needed a more streamlined way to manage access. When choosing a new solution, they wanted a government compliant door entry system that combined site management to make building and room access easier. The library also lets patrons reserve study and meeting rooms, and was looking for technology compatible with their current hardware and library app to grant secure access to these areas.

Solution: Fully integrated access

Avigilon offers robust security and the versatility of managing multiple sites in one system for effortless management.

    Switching to Avigilon’s mobile-based system lets library staff use their phones for secure access, eliminating their old cumbersome key cards.

  • Adjustable access permissions

  • Intuitive software with advanced features

    The cloud-based dashboard allows admin to monitor access in real-time for all buildings, with automatic alerts and remote unlock.

Result: Simplified library management

Plus, the Communico app integration is seamless and perfect” for granting hassle-free guest access to the library’s well-loved meeting and study spaces. Users register ahead of time in the app, and receive a code via email for secure and immediate access via keypad during their reservation time. The result: no lines, no waiting, no need to check-in at the front desk, and patrons love the new system.
