ACCESS CONTROL SOLUTIONS BY ACCESS CONTROL PROFESSIONALS
ABDi’s CMS software is fast! In fact, a guest can be processed into the community and issued a guest pass complete with turn-by-turn directions to your house in seconds. To further speed up the process of admitting guests, CMS also remembers your guest’s vehicle information if they’ve already been to the community. CMS can even automatically dial the resident’s telephone number if they forgot to call in their guest ahead of time. ABDi’s ScanFast ID Driver's License Scanner and Driver's License Recorder Modules are also designed to further decrease the time required to log in visitors.
However, long traffic lines usually result from a number of factors not related to the system's processing speed. For example, the guest call-in process, guard post orders and even the guardhouse configuration can contribute to traffic backup. ABDi has experience with thousands of gated communities, which enables us to evaluate your entire process to identify problems and recommend the best, most affordable solution.
Residents can have the flexibility to use the internet or their telephone to authorize guests. ABDi’s Resident Web Package can be used when the resident has access to a computer or iOS/Android smartphone. A link to our secure gateaccess.net website may be added to your community’s webpage. From here residents can enter and delete guests, obtain a report of who has been granted access to their property, send the guard a note or even let them know that they will be out of town.
If the resident prefers or doesn’t have access to a computer, they can use our Call Authorization System to leave a voicemail for the guards. When his or her guest arrives, the guard listens to the resident’s message and processes them into the community. Call Authorization automates the call-in process and eliminates the need for guards to answer the telephone so they can concentrate on greeting guests. No more paying someone to answer the telephone!
All users are given a unique username and password to access the CMS software. Therefore everything that is done in the software is tracked back to the user. Supervisors can determine what guard admitted a specific guest or modified a record. Guards on the graveyard shift (typically 10pm to 6am) can even be prompted to periodically enter their password to ensure that they are awake and on post.
ABDi’s software is extremely easy to use. In fact entry-level guards with no computer experience can be trained to use the software in minutes, not hours or days. ABDI can even install a module on a computer in your guard service’s training room. This allows your guard service to train your guards before they are stationed at your community.
Unlike other systems available on the market that are completely dependent on the internet, ABDi’s iCMS app remains operational when service is out. Guards can continue processing guests into the community. The residents can also continue to use their access control devices (transponders, barcodes, etc.) to enter the community through the resident gates.
ABDi’s ScanFast ID Driver's License Scanner and Driver’s License Recorder modules are designed for just this purpose. Your guards can request to see the driver’s license of all potential guests or just contractors and vendors. ScanFast ID allows a driver’s license to be quickly scanned into the CMS software, capturing the information and a digital picture of the license itself. This increases the contractor’s feeling of accountability and acts as a deterrent to construction theft. ScanFast ID also works with military IDs and green cards. The Driver’s License Recorder module reads the magnetic stripe on the driver’s license to capture visitor information.
ABDi's systems are extremely affordable - only pennies a day per household! ABDi offers remote hosted (cloud) solutions that eliminate the need for purchasing and maintaining costly Server computers. ABDi can even reuse your existing computers, gate systems, camera systems and access control readers/devices. If your community doesn't have computers or chooses to upgrade your existing computers, you can buy them yourselves to minimize the cost.
ABDi understands that each community is unique. A cookie cutter solution might work for some (or even most), but not for all. In recognition of this fact, we will customize our software to suit your community’s special needs. All customizations are done by our in-house programming staff.
ABDiPulse is a user-friendly yet comprehensive software suite that saves time and money by increasing productivity, efficiency and accountability through real-time sharing of information between security, service/maintenance and management personnel. The ABDiPulse Mobile Management Suite is highly customizable and consists of three interrelated modules: OfficerPulse for security/public safety roving patrols, ServicePulse for service/maintenance departments and PropertyPulse for streamlining the Compliance/ARB/DRB Inspection process.
ABDi's iCMS guard handheld app give your guards the freedom to leave the guardhouse to check in guests/contractors and into the community at curbside. iCMS takes full advantage of the intuitive and easy-to-use Apple iPad, iPad Mini or iPhone. Your guards have access to many of CMS's features up to 300 feet from the guardhouse via Wi-Fi. They can even print directions, take pictures of the guest and their license plate, scan guest pass QR codes and call residents to authorize guests.
ABDi’s Alarm Receiver System can monitor home security and fire alarms. Your resident’s home system can be programmed to call an alarm receiver that we furnish for the community. Since the alarm receiver is integrated with our CMS software, the alarm condition can be broadcast throughout the CMS network. The community’s security department or roving patrol can be dispatched to the home as a first response.
