This case study highlights the collaboration between Secure People and Australian Christian College (ACC) in designing an advanced electronic security system for their global network of schools across the country. Secure People, a trusted provider of security solutions, was engaged to develop a comprehensive security infrastructure that included access control and video surveillance. The project involved the installation of an Openpath access control system for easy management and distribution of Bluetooth mobile credentials, along with a robust AVA security CCTV system equipped with smart analytics for enhanced security monitoring. These integrated systems were deployed across multiple ACC campuses, including Marsden Park, Moreton, and Southland Albany.
Australian Christian College is a renowned educational institution with a global network of schools. Committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment, ACC sought to implement advanced electronic security systems across their campuses to ensure the safety of students, staff, and assets.
As ACC expanded its global network of schools, several challenges were identified that required effective security solutions:
Access Control Management
ACC needed a user-friendly access control system that could efficiently manage access privileges across multiple campuses. They sought a solution that would simplify the distribution of Bluetooth mobile credentials and streamline the management process.
Cloud-Based Access Control
ACC aimed to have a cloud-based access control system for centralized management. This would allow them to efficiently administer access control permissions, monitor access events, and make changes remotely from a centralized location.
Advanced Video Surveillance
ACC recognized the importance of implementing a robust video surveillance system with advanced analytics to enhance security monitoring capabilities across their campuses. They sought a solution that could provide intelligent detection and facilitate efficient search capabilities.
Solution Provided by Secure People
Secure People proposed a comprehensive security solution tailored to ACC’s requirements, which included the following components:
Openpath Access Control System
Secure People installed the Openpath access control system, a cloud-based solution known for its ease of use and distribution of Bluetooth mobile credentials. The system simplified access control management across ACC campuses, allowing authorized individuals to conveniently access different areas while maintaining stringent security measures.
AVA Security CCTV System
Secure People integrated the AVA Security CCTV system, a robust solution with built-in smart analytics, across ACC campuses. This system provided ACC with advanced video surveillance capabilities, including real-time monitoring, motion detection, and intelligent analytics. The smart searching capabilities facilitated quick retrieval of relevant footage during investigations.
The integration of the Openpath access control system and the AVA Security CCTV system enabled ACC to manage all security components from a centralized location. This centralized management approach provided efficient administration, simplified troubleshooting, and ensured a seamless experience for ACC across their global network of schools.
Benefits and Results
The collaboration between Secure People and ACC yielded several benefits and positive outcomes:
Streamlined Access Control
The Openpath system enabled easy distribution of Bluetooth mobile credentials, simplifying the access control process for authorized personnel. This streamlined approach enhanced convenience while maintaining robust security measures.
The cloud-based architecture of the Openpath system allowed for centralized management and administration of access control across multiple ACC campuses. It provided ACC with the flexibility to monitor and make changes remotely, ensuring efficient control over access privileges.
Enhanced Video Surveillance
The integration of the AVA Security CCTV system equipped with smart analytics strengthened ACC’s video surveillance capabilities. The system’s intelligent detection and smart searching capabilities improved incident response, enabling prompt identification and investigation of security-related events.
The deployed security infrastructure provided ACC with a scalable solution, enabling them to expand their global network of schools while maintaining a consistent and reliable security standard.
Secure People’s collaboration with Australian Christian College to design and implement an advanced electronic security system across their global network of schools has been highly successful. The installation of the Openpath access control system and the integration of the AVA Security CCTV system equipped with smart analytics have significantly enhanced the security measures at ACC campuses. This partnership ensures a safe and secure learning environment for students, staff, and visitors, aligning with ACC’s commitment to providing high-quality education while prioritizing safety and security.
