With a new state of the art facility, the John Roan School in south east London needed a security solution that would enable them to manage the movement of people across the school grounds.
A multi-factor authentication system, incorporating access control from the UK market leader Paxton plus biometric integration was installed meeting their requirements and providing safety and peace of mind for students and staff.
The John Roan School required a solution that would enable the school security administrators to manage and control the movement of over 300 staff and 1600 students across the school grounds. The students had begun to share access tokens and PIN numbers, in order to take advantage of restricted areas on the premises. John Roan required a solution that would prevent this practise from continuing.
It was recommended that integrating the school’s existing Net2 access control system with BioConnect’s identity management platform, would provide a simple end-to-end system for the school security administrators.
Net2, from Paxton is a simple networked system, designed to make the management of any site straightforward. The ease with which an additional system could be integrated meant it provided the ideal framework to meet school’s growing requirements.
The installation of 31 BioLite Net Readers was initially used to manage the movement of the 300 members of staff across the two school sites. With the completed BioConnect and Net2 software integration, the new system is now fully operational, managing the flow of people around the campus.
The multi-factor authentication required by the BioLite Net readers; PIN, fingerprint, and token, enabled the users to continue using their existing PINs and tokens, with the additional level of security and peace of mind from the biometric authentication. The new system provides a truly unique record of who is on site, preventing any unauthorised persons from gaining access to restricted areas or from using a borrowed token.
The simplicity of the Net2 software integration with the BioConnect platform means that John Roan have been able to roll the new system out to more users than anticipated, in a short period of time.
Russell Webb from installers Ideal Security said “The John Roan School admin loved Net2 for its simplicity and flexibility both for reporting and integration options”. The Net2 and BioConnect platform integration has capitalised on the simplicity that Net2 is known for, to deliver a much improved solution and, most importantly for the John Roan School, a simple administration tool.”
