Provide a Safe, Secure Campus Environment

Physical safety is top of mind for everyone on campus. Enable your security staff to control and monitor access to buildings, grant or revoke privileges, and remotely lock down buildings during an emergency.

Use one cohesive system to gain a complete view of your security operations, manage all access, privileges, and transactions, as well as monitor doors, alarms, and video surveillance.

CBORD’s CS Access solution goes well beyond the process of unlocking doors. You have real-time monitoring and control of doors and privileges, as well as instant lockdown capabilities, modern alarm management, integrated video capabilities, and personal safety resources for students.

Whether interacting with parking gates, turnstiles, doors, elevators, or any other access point, your students will move throughout campus with ease and confidence using a system of intelligent controls that are flexible and forward-thinking.
