Clay Platte Family Medicine Clinic upgrades to a flexible and secure IP-based access control system
“As a systems integrator, Wachter typically tries to choose partners that offer support and cutting edge new products. This is one of the reasons we choose Axis. They have simplified installation to the point where it allows us to utilize technicians more effectively.” Mario Palmietto, Solutions Engineer/Architect, Wachter, Inc.
Clay Platte Family Medicine is an all-in-one medical clinic offering a wide range of services for residents of suburban Kansas City, MO. With more than 100 staff members and 250 to 450 patients visiting a day, control over entry-way security is essential to protect patients, records, medicine, and potentially dangerous medical equipment. The clinic needed to upgrade their manual lock-and-key system to better accommodate their security requirements. They also wanted a system that could grow with them as they expanded.
Axis partner Wachter, Inc. recommended that the clinic install an IP-based access control system to meet all of their needs. AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller with AXIS Entry Manager software offered a simple, scalableand secure solution with all the benefits of IP-based technology. Unique, color-coded wiring diagrams streamlined the installation process. New units can be dropped in with ease, and the intuitive software gives the administrator complete control over the system.
Clay Platte Family Medicine has been able to establish full control over who can access their facility and when. They are able to set schedules, groups and clearance levels by dragging and dropping names in the software. They can feel safe knowing doors are locked at night, and the administrator has the ability to grant temporary access from home in case of an emergency. The cost savings they realized with the IP system has allowed them to explore incorporating video surveillance with the access control system.
