Galaxy Control Systems is offering a number of new features and functions in its System Galaxy access control and management software. The latest update provides users with tools that enable greater control and management of their access control solution, including the ability to quickly initiate a lockdown.

“The new feature enhancements we’ve added to System Galaxy provide users with the highest levels of control and situational awareness,” said Robert Laughlin, president, Galaxy Control Systems. “New features like crisis mode are testimony to Galaxy Control Systems’ continued commitment to provide users with the integrated features they need to best protect people, property and assets.”

System Galaxy’s Crisis Mode feature has been enhanced to allow users to upgrade or downgrade individual access levels as needed, as well as to lock down either specific doors or an entire facility in a panic or crisis situation. For example, if a chemical spill were to occur, Crisis Mode could be used to lock out everyone except members of the hazmat team — whose access would only be activated when the lockdown occurred — out of that particular area.

In addition, System Galaxy also has been enhanced with a new command card feature. Designed for K-12 educational facility control, this capability allows end users to issue access cards that are designated for specific functions based on user-established rules.
