Door Access Security System
On June 28, 2011, the MCCCD Governing Board approved a contract award to DH Pace for converting to a new door card access system (S2), replacing door security system campus-wide. The Capital Development Advisory Council (CDAC) reviewed this item at its June 28, 2011, meeting and recommended that it be submitted for Governing Board action.
The current College Public Safety door security system is out dated (23 years-old) and is not effective for tracking campus building access activity. The system upgrade will assist in the resolution of criminal incidents and protect the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. The new system integrates access control, alarm monitoring, video surveillance, and temperature monitoring, and employs web-based user interface for ease of use. The new system will provide more access points to the buildings for employees and allow College Public Safety with a means to quickly lock down the entire campus in the event of an emergency.
The project work includes replacing door security systems, installing new card readers on fourteen pre-2004 Bond program buildings, enhancing the infrastructure already in place for two new buildings, installing and configuring the new system licenses on the server, and integrating other campus building with the system.
