Massachusetts Community Hospital Steadily Implements Access Control

In many ways, Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, Mass., couldn't ask for a better location. Close to major roads and public transportation, the hospital is convenient for incoming patients, staff and visitors. But accessibility ceases to become an advantage if visitors who enter the campus are up to no good. To prevent trouble, the hospital depends on a new sophisticated security system that integrates access control and video surveillance.

Before 2002, the hospital relied on a lock-and-key system to secure all entrances. Now, exterior and interior doors are linked to an access control system in the main security office. More than 100 proximity card readers ensure that no one enters protected areas who shouldn't be there. Forty high-speed CCTV dome cameras, recorded by three digital video recorders, keep around-the-clock watch over main entrances, exterior parking lots and interior areas. Cameras are monitored from the security office and are available by remote access from other locations.
