“Wireless Access Control Drives Shift From Traditional Solutions” discusses how cost, flexibility, and accountability have increased deployment of wireless locks and systems – by Frank Pisciotta (Security Technology Executive Magazine, July/August 2020)
The residence life department was in the process of installing card access and CCTV in the residential buildings when we learned how little we knew about designing and administering a system to support and appropriately utilize the equipment. We decided to hire a consultant and were impressed with BPS’s presentation. Our experience with the company has given us reason to be even more impressed. We expanded the scope to include assessment of and recommendations for security for not just the residence halls but the entire campus. I would choose them again without any reservation.
From the time we made first contact with BPS, they were responsive to our questions and needs. The report BPS provided was concise, clear and well done. BPS discovered vulnerabilities that we were not aware which was invaluable to us. To assist us in maximizing our value, BPS looked for cost-effective security solutions and made reasonable recommendations. We would recommend BPS to other colleges and universities and we look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
We value the BPS team’s technical security knowledge and how to effectively apply security balancing the “trade-offs” of convenience and cost. The staff at BPS is very easy to work with and has never failed to follow-up on any questions or concerns. I can truly say that they are not satisfied with their work until you are satisfied. BPS is independent, knowledgeable on which security products are most effective at reducing risk and we highly recommend them to any organization interested in providing the highest level of protection for their institution.
Our interest was introducing proximity-based access control to the residence halls and ensuring we had a security management system that seamlessly integrated with our goal for a “One Card” system. The BPS’/TECHMARK team demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the needs of higher education and conducted their work thoroughly and professionally. BPS’/TECHMARK’S findings and recommendations were clearly presented. They delivered reports that our Administration could endorse and constructed design documents that enabled our Facilities, Design and Construction Department to solicit competitive bids for the needed security technology upgrades.
