SafeRise Chosen as Security Solution for Apartment Complex

As a way to provide a safer area for residents at an apartment complex in Pasadena, TX, the community manager decided to choose an access control system by SafeRise from FST21.

At the Pasadena Interfaith Manor Apartments in Pasadena, TX, Mike Garcia, the community manager at the complex decided it was time to install an access control system to improve safety for the residents. Garcia chose the SafeRise solution from FST21, and In Motion Identification system.

The new access control system can quickly identify anyone at the door and allow approved users access through a fusion of biometric recognition, face, behavioral, voice and license plate recognition. There are no keys, cards or access codes needed. SafeRise can make an informed decision whether to allow entrance, verify guests or transfer them to a monitoring station representative for assistance.

Before installing the solution, ion247, a central station and systems integration company, tested SafeRise in its own office for three months. The technology was a natural extension of the interactive video security that ion247 already had installed at Pasadena Interfaith Manor, so the decision to install SafeRise was simple.

ion247 recommended the SafeRise solution to SPM, the property management company that oversees the complex, and they, in turn, presented it to the Board of Directors and Management of Pasadena Interfaith Manor. The system not only allowed SPM to provide video security monitoring to its residents, but also allowed residents to have access to a live person at ion247 to assist them with entry when needed.

As for the residents, Garcia reports that they adapted quickly and love the fact that access is hands-free. "I also get a ton of compliments from vendors, family visitors and new prospects the first time they visit our property. They're amazed at how the system works."
