nSide Awarded Surveillance and Access Control Projects in Colbert County (AL) and Bessemer City (AL)

nSide recently received two awards for surveillance and access control projects in Colbert County and Bessemer City, Alabama.

Colbert County awarded a district-wide integrated system for physical security to nSide. This will include over 250 4K security cameras, as well as over 100 doors for an access control system. All of these new features will be accessible on the same platform, allowing the district to seamlessly manage their security from within their existing nSide platform.

Bessemer City awarded an access control solution that will be integrated into the nSide platform. This project will include access control on 81 total exterior doors in a cloud-based access control system that can be controlled remotely if needed. This project will include a three-year service contract that includes technical support and training at the end of installation.

At the completion of this project, these districts will have fully-integrated cloud-based access control, meaning they will be able to remotely lock down or secure the perimeters of any school in their district. They will also have the ability to remotely lock or unlock exterior doors for the purpose of emergency response.

The key to both of these awards was integration. The nSide platform has the capability to integrate both surveillance cameras and access control systems so that all school safety tools are working together in one place.
