Security versus proximity to citizens in public buildings
Public agencies, offices, administration departments are located in buildings that are frequently accessible to the public and experience intense activity during opening hours. However, employees should also be able to work safely without interruption. This means access control must be planned down to the smallest detail and with precisely defined rights of access.
In doing so, it is imperative to protect sensitive data, grant access to different groups of people at different times and give a flexible response to any changes. Public offices and agencies are also often spread over several buildings. An intelligent, digital system solution creates security, convenience and cost efficiency for such organisations.
The all-inclusive solution: System 3060
- Networking of several buildings since public agencies are often based at different locations
- Integration of time-and-attendance systems into the locking system
- Parking management for visitors and employees at public agencies with intense activity during opening hours
These requirements and activity in different areas show that there is a great deal which needs controlling. Besides customers and employees, there are also external service employees such as cleaning staff.
Another aspect to consider: not only is door security important. It is also essential to control other authorisations – be it for access barriers or cabinets with sensitive data.
System 3060 is the right solution for all the requirements that public sector buildings impose on a modern locking system.
- Access control with simultaneously automated documentation
- Quality assurance through automatic event logging and automatic processes
- Active security thanks to mapping of restricted access areas (e.g. archives)
- Passive security by deterring theft and abuse
- Low costs thanks to sustainability, durability, minimal power consumption, upward and downward compatibility, connection to third-party systems and more
Security in the public sector
Federal Administrative Court Leipzig:
pledged to secrecy.
Housed in an imposing 19th-century building, the Federal Administrative Court of Germany in Leipzig is the workplace for several hundred judges, lawyers and administrative employees. As can be expected, there are many sensitive areas in the building. The SimonsVoss System 3060 provides perfect protection for them all.
Security in the name of the law.
The architectural treasure not only houses court rooms and many offices, but also numerous areas accessible to the public plus rooms for judges, employees, lawyers, clients and journalists. System 3060 can be used to install a hierarchy of access rights quite easily. This ensures optimum compliance with confidentiality requirements for all 550 doors. Numerous doors here have been fitted with locking cylinders with access event logging. This means movement can be tracked at any time to establish which users went through particular doors at particular times. Incidentally, the police and insurance companies recommend using the SimonsVoss System 3060 as a digital locking system.
St. Wendel District Authority:
keeping to official channels.
The varied tasks at St. Wendel District Authority are spread over several buildings. All office and exterior doors in the six heavily used administrative blocks and the two branches are equipped with SimonsVoss digital locking technology.
You can never be too safe
A public office never stops growing. Mechanical locking systems stopped being practical at St. Wendel some time ago. That's why 390 office doors, exterior doors and various side doors have been fitted with digital locking cylinders. Visitors to the authority start flocking through the doors first thing in the morning. Everyone now knows exactly where they need to go, especially the some 350 council employees since the locking system clearly establishes who is allowed into each office and who is not.
The exterior doors also feature motorised locks to enhance security since they need to be securely locked outside opening hours. Motorised locks are equipped with an electronic timer switch. This ensures that doors are automatically opened and closed at specific times. The district authority offices are thus protected far more effectively against break-ins.
Stuttgart Art Museum:
sheer art appreciation assured.
Stuttgart Art Museum is open to the public. The SimonsVoss System 3060 ensures that the museum and its restaurant are not only open for everyone, but that they are also safe and secure.
Security is an art.
Around 1,000 visitors enter the museum every day while another 400 are drawn by its culinary delights. Optimum organisation is also required for the almost 130 employees. System 3060 ensures that access rights are managed quickly and easily. Some 160 digital locking cylinders have been installed.
These sturdy, adaptable locking cylinders bring an added advantage: the museum features numerous thick steel doors and fire doors with excess overlaps up to 15 centimetres long. The thickness presents no problems for radio transmission between the cylinders and transponders.
