The MICROgarde controllers are programmed and managed via TDSI’s EXgarde access management software. Unrivalled in its integration capabilities, the EXgarde V3 provided Southmead Hospital management with a flexible and dynamic platform able to work seamlessly with a wide range of building systems including intruder and fire detection. This allows for complete building and security management, and created huge potential for significant time and cost savings.
The system is completed by MIFARE® readers and cards, giving the hospital site true, contactless, smart card technology. Now serving approximately 8,000 card holders, the readers provide an extremely cost effective, highly reliable solution that also allows for straightforward expansion in the future if required (the same MIFARE® card can be used for other site services such as cashless vending for example).
