HID Global announced that its networked access controllers and readers were selected by the National University of Singapore Suzhou Research Institute (NUSRI) in China to enhance campus security and facility management. The solution leverages the university’s existing TCP/IP network investment to deliver a Web-based access control system.

With dozens of geographically dispersed buildings that house expensive equipment, NUSRI’s new access control solution includes HID Global’s VertX® V1000 network controllers, VertX® V100 door/reader interfaces, and smart card readers to monitor access to different buildings and enable advance reservations functionality to access key campus facilities such as laboratories, hazardous materials storage rooms and machine rooms.

“The open architecture IP-based access control solution supports the system already deployed in the field to save cost,” said Mr. Xu, project manager of integrators of NUSRI. “Additionally, the system is scalable to enable future expansion, which addresses the growing demands of our campus and subsidiaries, while also providing better cost control.”
