Priam Properties is a private real estate investment firm with a focus on multi-tenant office properties in high-growth markets. In Tampa, the company acquired the Registry II building with an abandoned access control system and called Surveillance Technology, Inc. (STI) for an upgrade.
At the main entrance, the double doors had no card reader. There is, however, a tenant door available slightly off to the side of the primary entry doors, where STI installed updated electronic strikes and readers. The rear entry was equipped with the same multi-protocol readers, which will continue to accommodate legacy tenants’ existing HID cards alongside the new AWID credentials. All doors are connected to an IP-based Rosslare access control system.
Though not accessible by tenant credentials, the main double doors have been upgraded with 1,200 lb electromagnetic locks operating on a timer. They remain open during business hours, then lock at the close of business. It’s important to note that these doors can always be used to exit the building freely, even when locked. To enter after hours, tenants must use the new readers at the side or rear doors to gain entry.
The surveillance and access control experts at Surveillance Technology work closely with clients to assess the unique conditions of each property and propose an innovative and effective solution to their needs.
