2014 Campus Access Control Survey Results

Policies, staffing and lack of buy-in pose biggest problems.

Educational and healthcare institutions continue to acquire all types of new and upgraded access control technologies, be they card and/or biometrics access management systems, locks, door hardware, visitor management, windows safety and security solutions, metal detection or fences. Despite the investments, lack of effective policies, staffing and campus community support of access control continue to pose significant challenges.

Those are just two of the key findings from Campus Safety’s 2014 Access Control Study conducted in September. More than 450 representatives from institutions of higher education, K-12 school districts and hospitals provided valuable input on the technology they have or are considering purchasing; the challenges they have been experiencing with managing ingress; as well as the policies and procedures supporting lockdowns and access control.
