Library and Student dormitory access control

verified-userThe Challenge

The key challenge for a university, hosting around 8’000 students every year, is ensuring their safety, security and convenience. It starts with arranging the premises to meet the modern living standards, and continues throughout everyday processes, which must be easy to follow, manage and observe. At the heart of every modern building therefore lies an access control system, managing people flows and providing vital information for automation, HVAC, security and other building management systems.

When choosing the technologies for buildings undergoing modernization, Kaunas University of Technology had the following requirements:

verified-userThe Solution

When starting the project, the university faced a typical complex decision to make – whether to start consolidating the management of diverse parts of the campus, or to go with “per-building” approach. The necessity to manage access for a huge number of users daily, including over 1’000 foreign exchange students and teachers, was still the key task.

Lithuania’s largest low voltage integration specialist, technology solutions company Fima advised KTU to test CredoID conformance to project objectives.

Learning that CredoID supported Active Directory user import, as well as multiple sites (Locations), which allowed deploying the project in multiple independent stages and managing access to separate buildings by different administrators, while keeping integral data in a single database, made the platform choice easy for KTU.

After the renovation, library and dormitory rely on the following access and security technologies:

“The system has far surpassed our expectations. It is simple and easy to use, has all the necessary features and requires minimal training for our staff, such as library managers. We can quickly accommodate local and foreign students, use a variety of credentials, and keep track of their access rights through our Active directory system without the headache of changes every semester. It is also important that we could ensure responsible use of the renovated facilities using detailed reporting capabilities of CredoID. We plan to keep adding buildings and expanding the functionality of the platform.” – says Mr. Grazvydas Visockas, the head of Infrastructure development department of Kaunas University of Technology.
