Gallagher SMB Security Solution Adds Support for a Wider Range of Doors

Gallagher has today announced an enhancement to their cloud-based security solution – added support for a wider variety of doors including gates, roller doors, and cabinets.

“This release builds on the existing flexibility of the system, giving customers more options for the types of doors they can control from their smartphone,” said Lisa Tubb, senior product manager for Gallagher.

“We are constantly listening to feedback from the market to ensure we are meeting the business needs of our customers. We’ve learned that users of the SMB system have a variety of site configurations that include more than just typical access doors,” she said.

Using the new Open functionality, found within the Doors tab of the Gallagher SMB app, customers can unlock a gate, roller or other type of door, from anywhere at any time. This is useful when someone needs access to a site after hours, such as a courier driver dropping off goods, and saves travelling to the business.

A further benefit of this feature release is the added flexibility it provides SMB Installation Partners, who can now configure a door to meet the customer’s specific needs – with or without an access reader.

“Through understanding the requirements of our customers, we’ve found there are instances where the additional security provided by Access Control is not needed for specific doors. For example, a storage room that is not accessed frequently, but still needs to be secured,” Tubb said.

Currently available in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States, the Gallagher SMB security solution is a cloud-based platform designed to simplify the security operations of businesses via an easy-to-use mobile app.
