The University of Denver is upgrading its access control system in a two and a half year, $3.5 million investment in security.
The Denver University Clarion reports that the university is installing the Software House C-Cure 9000 access security system in many of its buildings, expecting the changes to be complete in 2017. The upgrade will replace the school’s Blackboard card readers, which currently require the Department of Campus Security officers to unlock all building doors manually.
C-Cure enables the university’s proximity card readers and electronic locks to directly interface with the school’s camera surveillance system.
Four buildings on campus already have C-Cure installed, and many other buildings, including the dorms, will see C-Cure’s black card scanner and electronic locks before the end of 2015.
