Secure Campus Access

Ensure people only have access to areas they are qualified to be in, and effectively manage compliance with your organizational policies and government regulations. The access to specific areas can be based on enrollment or HR information, or individual competencies including inductions, licenses, training and qualifications. There is a seamless integration with existing third-party systems like CCTV, Salto and Aperio hardware. Optional first card unlock keeps specific areas on campus secure until a nominated cardholder has accessed it first, such as a teacher or other member of staff.

Student accommodation
Your duty of care is to keep students safe and supported in student accommodation buildings. With intelligent, integrated access control and visitor management solutions you can monitor student access to residential areas, including their last door access. You can also manage visitors in residential areas to enforce visiting hours and protocols. Track visitor arrival and departure, and generate notifications about visitors who are overdue leaving. Streamline access to accommodation and other resources using Gallagher’s Mobile Connect app or a single access card. You will be able to improve the enrolment process by pre-setting student credentials to allow immediate access, avoiding queues and delays.

Access Management Solutions

Manage Visitors and employees

Control access using the Gallagher Visitor Management interface to create an open yet secure environment that keeps visitors on campus safe. Manage visitor and contractor access on and off-site, including updating visitor details, capturing photos and printing visitor labels, assigning escorts and access cards.

Ensure people are in the right place at the right time, and visiting times are adhered to in student accommodation. Send manual or automated email/SMS notifications to hosts of visitor arrival or visitors who are overdue to leave and prevent unauthorized access through automatic revocation of cards after expiration.

Securing sensitive areas

Protect data and reduce cyber security risks
