Big access control for small budgets

Volunteer Fire Station

The Case of the Volunteer Fire Station

The Fire Chief wanted a better way for his guys to gain access. The local volunteer fire station used traditional keypad locks that were reaching their end of life. At the top of Chief Bill’s access control wish list was flexible credential types. He wanted Bluetooth access with remote unlock capability, but also wanted pin codes and fobs for older volunteers who were less adoptive of mobile technology. Chief Bill also wanted real-time events information to know who accessed the fire station during afterhours calls. Finally, the Chief wanted a way to automatically unlock his hallway door during regular business hours, and then have this door relock automatically at 6:00 pm.

Chief Bill contacted Rick with Rick’s Security Services and was surprised to see that the pdqSMART wireless networked system he had heard about was very affordable. The system fulfilled Chief Bills wish list and more. Bill was happy to know that the installation on seven doors would take less than a day, minimizing downtime and disruptions to his operation.

Case Closed. The customer is happy and Rick beefed up his bottom line with business that was unattainable before pdqSMART.
