Published April 2020


Electronic access control has been prominent on higher education campuses for many years—and it’s easy to see why. From key management to enhanced visibility, administration has greater control over security. Then wireless electronic locks changed the game. By eliminating hectic wires, colleges and universities can deliver the convenience, efficiency and security of electronic access control on more doors, deeper into campus buildings.


Electronic credentials make the campus experience more seamless—at a time when tech-savvy students are demanding more convenient routines and mobile access. Wireless speeds up the adoption of a keyless campus, where everything is controlled by the student ID. Simpler and cost-effective deployment means a university can connect more doors in less time. Thus, the path to a keyless campus is achieved quicker.

Benefits of wireless

Wireless solutions transformed electronic access control. Eliminating the need to run wires saves time and costs associated with installation, which allows universities to connect more openings in less time. By speeding up adoption, the path to a keyless campus is achieved quicker. Reduce deployment costs, increase reach and enhance the campus experience with wireless. 



Electronic access control gives institutions broader control over every connected opening. Configure locks, manage access rights and assign schedules from virtually anywhere. Greater command allows universities to respond quickly in emergency situations.


Electronic access control provides insights into what’s going on inside the buildings. Users have access to audit trails and alerts. Real-time data and technology help manage facilities as well as the students and faculty within them.


Universities can deliver a better student experience when electronic access control is implemented throughout campus. A single credential provides a frictionless experience while users move from one building to the next with ease. Mobile student IDs deliver an even more seamless experience.

Key management

Say goodbye to the time devoted to key managment. Electronic credentials provide an additional level of control by mitigating the risks associated with lost or stolen keys. Access rights can be deactivated immediately and new credentials issued in seconds.

Future growth

Flexibility is an important feature to consider when discussing electronic devices and credentials. Door access will always be needed, but how it’s monitored and the solutions available evolve year after year. Interoperable solutions allow end users’ security solutions to evolve along with advancing technology and the changing needs of their campuses—like moving to mobile credentials.

Easy adoption

Wireless locks complement existing security solutions to extend the benefits of electronic access control deeper in the building. These locks can be tailored to fit varying security needs on perimeter and interior doors, like residence halls, for a secure and convenient experience. Implement wireless locks campus-wide or one building at at time.
