Weatherfield Academy Secure Access Control
The Lantec team was approached by Weatherfield Academy to complete a site survey in preparation to bring their security system up to speed.
After completing the site survey our team recommended the EntrySign system with a staff terminal for secondary sign in during busy periods. This helps to ensure staff are verified when entering the property
We also installed a Paxton Video Door Entry Intercom just outside the main reception, this way visitors will need to call to gain entry into the school. The school then release the door for visitors via the door entry monitor.
Finally, we installed Paxton Controllers to replace the schools existing stand alone door entry system, which is now a networked solution, whereby all doors are connected together and can be managed by the schools IT dept.
A modern security solution, with unified access control. Providing safer and more secure access points for staff and visitors alike.
Michael Gurney, Weatherfield Academy says,
“The installation of the Entry Sign & Paxton systems to Weatherfield Academy has transformed the day to day routines of the admin and site team. Also the screen looks amazing displaying school logos when visitors arrive at the school, The efficient way of seeing who is on site, pre-authorising visitors and accessing staff attendance records means that back office staff can see exactly who is on site and who has left the building, We really love the options to create our own fobs, rather than having to speak to 3rd parties.
Visitors can now sign themselves in and out of the building which frees up office staff time with a very handy VR code. Fire drill information can be accessed via any device with a login and can be personalised for individual circumstances of the user. The system supports safeguarding requirements in schools, with all visitors having a photo ID when signing in, this has ticked loads of boxes and will grow with us for years to come.
