Using G4S-owned AMAG technology, Yale University, one of the world’s best-known and oldest Ivy League institutions, has carried out, almost unnoticed, a full scale upgrade of its access-control and site security system across 350 main campus buildings.

Access Control and site security

Securing a prestigious university in a busy urban area presents particular challenges. High expectations by students, parents and staff, combined with modern security and environmental factors, demanded an exceptional security solution.

The innovative AMAG approach was to use their Symmetry SR Retrofit System, which is designed so that the customer can use their existing wiring and card readers to avoid a disruptive, prolonged, expensive and complex upgrade and without damage to the historic Yale buildings. This unique “plug and play” design allowed Yale to replace old controllers with Symmetry SR Controllers, and provides Yale with a range of advanced integration options so that additional security measures can be added if and when required.
