Put safety first

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

Controlling access surgically in Dallas.

Baylor Medical Centre is a state-of-the-art surgical hospital that opened in the Dallas Uptown area in 2011. Specialties and services include orthopaedic, spine, pain management and plastic surgery.

Putting safety and the care of its patients at the forefront, Baylor Medical Centre required a proven access control system which offers integrated biometric security as well as the ability to work with third party systems. CEM reseller, Access Technology Systems selected the CEM AC2000 Lite security management system to meet these requirements.

The AC2000 Lite system offers Baylor a feature rich, yet affordable access control system that meets their complete security needs. AC2000 Lite is an integrated access control, alarm processing and photo badging security management system. AC2000 Lite software incorporates a suite of applications including AC2000 AED (alarm event display), an integrated alarm processing application which provides a dynamic graphical representation of all system events. In addition, CEM’s AC2000 External Systems application means that the hospital can interface the AC2000 Lite system to its existing video management system without the need for costly development work.

The CEM S610f fingerprint reader was central to the system design at the Baylor Medical Centre.

“The primary reason for choosing CEM was based on the strength of the CEM S610f fingerprint readers and their ability to provide integrated template management,” said Jamie Finegan, VP of business development, Access Technology Systems.

In addition to fingerprint security, the S610f reader features an internal database for offline card validation, a keypad for PIN verification and an LCD for displaying meaningful messages such as ‘Card Expiring’ and ‘Access Granted’.

“The integrated biometric system means that staff at the hospital can administrate cardholders via one user-friendly interface, without needing a separate biometric network. Biometric templates are then encrypted and fully distributed from the server to the S610f reader internal database,” said Finegan.

With construction work at the site well under way, Baylor Medical Centre at Uptown can be assured of the highest level of security when it opens in 2011.
