"One of the best benefits has been the ability to know who’s coming and going and at what times, from just about anywhere. The Brivo system has been working very well and has an extremely easy-to-use interface."
Brian Barrett | Operations Manager | Bethel United Church of Christ
Bethel United Church of Christ in Elmhurst, Illinois, used a not-very-secure lock-and-key system, which gave keyholders access to all of its facilities at any time.
The church, offices, meeting rooms and a preschool were used at different hours
If someone needed a door unlocked or locked, a keyholder had to be onsite to do so
All areas were accessible by key and it became difficult to keep track of who had the keys
Simply Better Security with Brivo Onair
Barrett chose Brivo Onair for its ease of access control and cost-effectiveness
The web-hosted platform allowed control of doors from anywhere, from any device
With lower upfront costs, the total cost was reduced nearly 50% over traditional systems
There was no need to maintain expensive IT infrastructure, resources and administration
"No more trips to the church to unlock a door for a meeting—just a couple of clicks on my home computer does it."
The entire system was easily installed and up and running with minimal training
With just one interface, managing access and security is easy
Barrett can monitor all door events without the cost of a wide area network
Staff can manage access to different areas without anyone needing to be onsite
Sanctuary doors were put on an automated schedule to eliminate manual opening
Staff and meeting leaders were assigned cards and PIN numbers to access doors
