As locking hardware becomes more integrated with the access control security head-end system, the need for proper installation, maintenance and configuration is becoming more critical than ever. Join us as Chris Stull, Electronic Sales Engineer at Allegion, moderates a discussion with Bret Emerson, President of Commtech Design and Ryan Benson, Senior Project Architect at Schmidt Associates. Attendees of this session will learn about key trends in the end user market that is driving the need for Division 8/28 coordination. Points of discussion will include:
The health and safety of students and staff continues to be a top priority for school districts, colleges and universities. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to intensify the magnitude of this challenge. Balancing the procedures related to security, safety and infection control is like putting together a puzzle.
Thankfully, the US federal government has taken action to support schools in this endeavor by providing Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) and Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEERF) funding, to ensure every student has the resources they need to learn in-person, in a safe and healthy environment. Join the discussion as our experts highlight the provisions within the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES), Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA), and American Rescue Plan (ARP) Acts, which allows this funding to upgrade access control and security solutions to assist school districts, colleges and universities as they work to get their students & teachers back to school safely.
