“With Avigilon, we get the high-level security and control that’s expected in D.C., and the wave-to-unlock feature works seamlessly. It’s like magic.”
Mark Fitzpatrick, CTO at the Reagan Institute
Compliant, future-proof technology
The Avigilon Alta access control system gives the Reagan Institute better visibility and control over their security, even from across the country.
Alta’s cloud-based platform allows the team in LA to issue credentials, adjust schedules, and see real-time activity in Washington, D.C.
The sleek Smart Readers have an 11mm profile that mounts flush to compliment the carefully curated aesthetic of the facility.
Strict compliance standards and enhanced controls help meet ingress and egress requirements for high-profile guests.
The Reagan Institute team can issue encrypted key cards alongside secure mobile credentials, all with custom permissions.
Robust security for a prominent building
With a high-profile address in Washington, D.C. just blocks from the White House, the Reagan Foundation & Institute’s newest location requires the highest levels of security and compliance.
Challenge: heightened security, remote access
With the executive IT management team based in Los Angeles, they needed visibility into the D.C. location, and to be able to manage the entire system without being on-site. The team has strict ingress and egress requirements due to hosting prominent and elite guests, so credentials need to be secure, able to meet federal-level compliance, easy to manage and unique — no traditional keycards. And the building’s architects were particular about maintaining the high-end look throughout the Institute.
Solution: cloud-based mobile access
The technology team at the Institute chose Avigilon Alta for its flexible yet robust security features, and superior user experience.
Real-time, remote management
The LA-based team at the Ronald Reagan Foundation in Simi Valley gets alerts and notifications to help admins address security concerns.
Secure entry for users and visitors
Employees love the touchless capabilities, and Alta’s digital visitor credentials can be customized with specific permissions for each guest.
Flexible credential support
Alta’s mobile access is convenient and easy to manage, but the system still supports encrypted badges for the multi-tenant building.
Installation: Space-saving deployment
Installing government compliant access control for the Reagan Institute posed a unique challenge for inBuilding, the security solutions provider and technology integrator for the project. The team was able to stack the Avigilon ACU hardware inside a single rack-mounted drawer in the server room, saving space and making it easier to manage. Plus, the plug-and-play wiring made for a fast, centralized installation that created redundancy in the power network, so the whole system works smoothly.
