I recently had the opportunity to exhibit on behalf of Brivo at the annual Daxko REACH conference in Birmingham, Alabama. The majority of YMCAs and many JCCs in the United States use Daxko Operations software to run their associations.
During his keynote, Dave Gray, CEO of Daxko, announced the new partnership between Daxko and Brivo to the Daxko customer community. The partnership will allow Daxko’s customer base to run their facility access directly through Daxko Operations Software. This will be made possible by integrating with Brivo’s cloud-based access control system, Brivo OnAir.
There is safety in numbers—the military knows it, ships and trucks move in convoys, we know it because when we walk to our car after a night out, we usually stick together and keep a look out. Fish swim in schools and animals travel in packs and herds. But when it comes to cyber security, access control and threats to enterprise infrastructure, too many of us are abandoning this instinctive defense for a “my data, my bunker” mentality. That idea is flawed, here’s why:
The bad guys cooperate, we should too.
At the most basic level, two heads are better than one.
The flame has been extinguished at Rio, but there is a great deal to be learned about strategic planning in the wake of this year’s Olympic games.
Every four years, thousands of people from all over the world flock to catch a glimpse of the Olympic Stadium—for a chance to stand on the podium, to celebrate the glory of a world united through sports. Millions more watch on their televisions as it all unfolds, starting from the opening ceremony to its close. The execution of large-scale sporting events require multiple layers of security, pre-planning and efficient coordination in order to ensure everyone involved is safe.
Antioch Fire Department Keeps Volunteers Safe with Brivo and Eagle Eye Networks’ Integrated Cloud-Based Solution0
The Antioch Fire Department and First Protection District protects roughly 26,000 residents in the Lake County Illinois area, and recently replaced its on-premise physical access control system at all three of its fire stations with the Brivo OnAir® and Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS solution.
Why did Antioch Fire Department seek out a cloud-based security solution?
Blue Lion Security Systems introduced the unified security solution to Antioch Fire Department for a number of reasons, including:
“We saw upgrading the access control system as a way to help the department be more aware of what’s happening at each station, and to keep our employees safe.
Security Systems Facilitator and Brivo Dealer, Sabre Integrated, Graduates from Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program0
Sabre Integrated Security Systems, specializing in cloud-based security solutions was selected to participate in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program, a four-month interactive program created to stimulate the growth potential of small business owners. We recently had a chance to speak with Cliff Franklin, CEO and Owner of Sabre Integrated Systems, LLC, to better understand his experience developing Sabre’s growth plan to include the Brivo OnAir® and Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS solution:
1. How did you hear about the program/get introduced to the idea of applying?
A friend in my networking group went through the program some years ago, so I was familiar with it.
Steve Van Till’s, President & CEO of Brivo, response to SecurityInfoWatch.com’s recent article: Roundtable: The State of Mobile Access Control.
Joel Griffin, Editor of SecurityInfoWatch.com, recently published the article, Roundtable: The State of Mobile Access Control, noting the immediate impact the emergence of mobile credential solutions will have on customers. For example, many mobile solutions available to the market are forcing customers to install new compatible hardware or make upgrades to their existing hardware.
I believe my industry colleagues make many excellent points about the exciting evolution of mobile access control. A lack of standards and, in most cases, the need to retrofit reader hardware for NFC and Bluetooth solutions are indeed slowing adoption.
Denver Rescue Mission provides emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, permanent housing assistance, and community outreach. On any given night the Mission provides a warm place to sleep for up to 1,000 people. The Mission also provides up to 2,000 meals each day for guests and people participating in programs. People who come to the Mission for help have gone through challenging situations that often include, homelessness, addiction, and many times they are caught in a cycle of poverty.
Due to the nature of this population, the Mission sought out a unified security solution to keep its guests, participants, employees, volunteers and others safe.
Do you want to be notified when the cleaning crew has arrived or if a door has been left ajar? Brivo OnAir allows specific people to receive an email message when an event occurs.
Brivo OnAir administrators can create notification rules (under the Setup tab) that will send email messages to a list of recipients when a certain event occurs. Some examples of events are exception events (such as a door being left ajar), successful access events (such as when the cleaning crew arrives on site), or even camera events (such as when motion is detected in a certain area). A notification must be linked to a schedule, so for example, if you only want to know about camera motion events after business hours, you can set up a schedule from 5 PM to 9 AM the next morning, notifying you of any motion detected during that time.
Did you know that you can control your door unlock schedules directly from the keypad reader? Brivo OnAir lets you assign certain groups the permission to use keypad commands to override a door unlock schedule and later reactivate it. For example, let’s say you are at a doctor’s office and have your front entrance unlocked from 9 AM to 5 PM. However, from 12 noon to 1 PM, you want to lock that door while your staff is at lunch, but you’re never exactly sure if your staff will be back exactly at 1 PM. This feature allows you to control the process.
Customer needs drive every business, and this has never been more true than in the security and locksmith industry. As the world becomes more digital and fast-paced to accommodate our busy lives, the security industry has moved with it. The industry is shifting toward high-tech solutions. Cutting-edge security brands like Brivo work to keep homeowners and office managers ahead of the curve.
Mastering classic security measures has been a hallmark of successful businesses in the past, but combining them with electronic systems protects us from unwanted guests in the digital age. High-tech security solutions aren’t just for corporations in summer blockbusters—they are very real, and very affordable for homeowners too.
