Given the buildings’ age and architectural design, networking the various access points was never an option. Hardwiring would have been too complex and expensive and most wireless locking solutions would have been unsuitable for the many historic doors. For the Inn, the advantages of a key-based access management solution were far superior to traditional mechanical locks and networked access control. Nicholas Bracey, Chief Porter at Lincoln’s Inn, explains:
This solution has allowed us to install 21st-century technology easily and discreetly on doors that are well over 100 years old. With the solution’s operational software, we’re able to manage more than 3,000 transactions a month and put users into specific access groups based on profile. This gives us complete flexibility
