St. Lawrence University recently installed a card access control system, allowing students access to all residence halls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
By showing ID cards within 3-4 inches of an electronic reader at the main doors of each residence hall, students are able to enter immediately.
Because the card holder must have access rights to that building or doors will not unlock, the main entrances of the residence halls have a yellow emergency phone. The emergency phones are equipped with a key pad to dial on campus phone number and a red panic button that dials Safety & Security directly.
