The Challenge

To modernize the Boon Edam Head office with a secure cloud-based infrastructure, challenges centred around:

  • Having a customized overview of all floors with layouts to provide immediate focus on event-related information.
  • Transforming the way staff access doors, turnstiles and speed lanes by shifting from traditional access cards to a Mobile App.
  • Having one supplier of software, Mobile App, cloud services, and hardware.

A Tailored approach

Working alongside the client and our trusted installer partners at Giant Security B.V., we implemented:

  • IPROTECT AC CLOUD – Our integrated solution for software, Mobile App, cloud services, and hardware, which reduces compatibility issues, streamlines operations, and fosters a cohesive technology ecosystem.
  • Access / Mobile App – Used in conjunction with IPROTECT Cloud to setup the communication between mobile devices and card readers which turns mobile phones into a virtual access card. Our readers are integrated directly into Boon Edam entrance and security products, providing a smooth solution that works seamlessly with IPROTECT for enhanced access control.
  • VDG SENSE Video Management System provides users with event driven macros that simplify trigger function setup for predefined events. This feature enhances system adaptability and efficiency, allowing users to easily customize responses to dynamic security situations.

  • When someone accesses the AC system, video footage is shown automatically. If an alarm triggers, operators can instantly view cameras in the IPROTECT AC interface.

Mobile App

Our Solutions

In line with our “mobile is key” principle, it features:

  • Easy registration: Users receive an invitation email with a QR code, inviting them through IPROTECT to download the Mobile App and either start using it or register their organization.
  • Flexibility: Per reader, users can customize their phone’s usage settings. This includes options such as requiring the phone to be unlocked prior to use, opening doors within a specified distance, or directly presenting the phone for specific tasks.
  • Heightened security of the building because it uses PKI (Public Key Infrastructure).
