  • Integration of two databases from the university and Active Directory in relation to parking management for students, employees, and visitors entering the campus through a combination of LPR and student/employee ID cards.

The Solution

Working alongside the requirements of the Wroclaw University of Technology, we were able to offer tailored solutions for the challenges experienced in educational facilities with our dedicated solutions.

Student Portal

To provide a streamlined and user-friendly experience for students, the updated portal features a simplified interface that allows students to enter their LP number and accept parking regulations seamlessly. This new system ensures a faster and more efficient process for students, enabling them to manage their parking needs with ease. With this update, the client can enhance the overall satisfaction of their students while maintaining a high level of security and efficiency.

Multiple databases

To automate the process of creating user profiles in the AC system. With this, the client can automatically create the given name, surname, card number, and authorizations in the system. Two main databases that were linked were the SELS (Electronic School ID System) and Active Directory allowing for seamless data transfer between the systems. By integrating the databases, the client can automatically retrieve critical information such as student and staff records, schedules, and other essential data.

Leveraging AC data for a better way of working

To ensure that universities remain attractive to students, it’s important to utilize AC solutions to enhance campus life. For instance, the iParking website receives the data from IPROTECT to provide students with real-time information about parking availability. Thanks to this data, the university can also provide students with interesting and useful information in their “Strefa Otwartej Nauki” (SON)/Open Science Zone (SON) to show the attractiveness of the library for students, for example, how many people use this facility.

Facility Communication (Intercom)

In situations where a card is forgotten or a different car with a different LPR number is used (VIPs, couriers, borrowed vehicles, etc), Intercom provides a reliable means of communicating with the operator. Through this communication, the operator can authorize access to the facility, preventing any unnecessary delays or disruptions. For the convenience of security employees changing workstations, the Intercom system is also connected to the central phone line.

Manage events and react accordingly

Based on customer requirements, event-driven management procedures were implemented using our SMS where operators are automatically informed by an alarm when an exceptional activity of interest takes place, especially important when monitoring areas where activity should not be taking place at specific times.

Access Control for security-sensitive environments

At the university, 235 readers were installed to offer a fully equipped solution to ensure the highest levels of security for employees, students, and visitors. The advantages of the Access Control system include functionalities such as integration of a student ID card as a proximity access card and flexible expansion of the AC system with additional rooms or buildings. Our solution provides a comprehensive guest service that includes several features. These include the pre-preparation of access cards for conference or training participants (with an office-mode feature), automatic event logging with camera pictures, booking an appropriate number of parking spaces, and monitoring guest movement within the facility.
