Ultrak introduces VaultGuard

Dec '99 Access Control & Identity Management

The VaultGuard bank safety deposit box access control system dramatically reduces guard costs since customers who require access to safety deposit boxes do not have to be escorted with the use of this system.

The current method of assisted entry for customers to access a safety deposit box requires a bank guard to perform several steps before the customer is allowed to access their property. The steps a guard must perform are many and time consuming. These functions include account maintenance, individual identification via ID card, signature verification, verification that the area is not occupied, providing access to the safety deposit box area by unlocking the day gate, and finally providing one of the keys for a dual keyed lock set at the safety deposit box. It is obvious that by eliminating the need for a guard considerable savings can be achieved.

The VaultGuard bank safety deposit box access control system is based upon software and hardware supplied by Ultrak, and will be supplied as a standard product release. VaultGuard is a proprietary product used exclusively by Ultrak under licence for which application is currently pending with the US Patent and Trademark office.

“VaultGuard will be marketed to the banking industry with our channel partners, specifically to branch banks providing safety deposit box services to their customers. We are excited about this new technology that will provide substantial improvements in efficiency and ease of use for our banking customers,” stated Tom Broyles, Ultrak’s Product Director for Access Control.
