Remote access control at Tribes’ flexible workstations.

Innovative solution with Axis network door controller through successful collaboration.

“No other system was capable of providing the same openness as AXIS A1001.” Sjouke Wijnsma, IDODI CEO.


Tribes provides subscription-based, fully equipped, flexible workstations and wanted to arrange this by using a flexible software platform which provides various functionalities in the field of facility and security management. This includes booking meeting rooms and assigning access rights, dispensing coffee, and documenting the number of prints that were made. The system needed to be able to facilitate everything with a single card, handle an international roll-out, and be innovative. Above all, all applications needed to be available in one single interface.


The solution was found in a cloud-based system called EntranceManager. This platform relies on integration with AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, Vitoz card readers, and Assa Abloy electronic door fittings. The appropriate authorization rights are transferred to the client by means of a Tribes card, which also tracks the client’s usage and personal preferences. This way the client receives a clear monthly invoice of their employees’ actual usage. The flexible set-up and cloud availability makes this comprehensive package to support facility and security management.


The implemented system has already proven to be stable and user-friendly. With EntranceManager, Tribes can manage access rights and usage from one single system. All controllers can be fully managed separately from the cloud, which ensures changes can be processed right away. Other systems often need 24 or even 48 hours to reload the system, but EntranceManager makes it possible to grant or deny access immediately. Since clients book meeting rooms online, Tribes also knows which rooms have been used on any given day and can also see which rooms do not need to be cleaned. That saves time on cleaning, and therefore saves money.
