ACCESS CONTROL
CellGate Eliminates Access-Control
Problems at Vanguard Crossing
The Vanguard Crossing Apartments in St. Louis, Mo., are a 202-unit, Class A-rated
apartment community with 250 to 290 residents. There are two resident four-story
buildings at Vanguard Crossing - one " B " -shaped (Building 1) and the other " L " shaped
(Building 2), with a four-story parking garage in between them.
Building residents park on the same floor of the parking garage that their
apartment is located on. Then, they walk directly from the parking garage floor to the
floor of their apartment. A shared indoor hallway in each of the two resident buildings
leads to residents' front doors.
In the summer of 2022,
the access-control system
in use at Vanguard Crossing
was a self-contained keypad
with strike lock that was
utilized at eight groundlevel
building entrances,
two gates at the community
fenced pool and 12 residentbuilding
entrances from the
parking garage.
None of the 22 entrances
was connected to a central
access-control system for
the assignment of unique credentials per resident and/or for centralized monitoring,
which the client wanted. This meant that one primary code was utilized for all
residents, and that code was regularly shared with non-residents.
In addition, because each entry was not wired to a centralized access-control box,
property management had no historical records/logs that would detail activity at
each entrance, nor by whom. This was also something they wanted.
There was no telephone entry or visitor-management system being utilized at the
property at the time. If a visitor came to see a resident, the resident either (a) had to
provide the shared code to the visitor in advance so they could gain access to the
apartment buildings by entering the code at one of the secure doors or (b) contact
the resident upon arrival via cell phone or text message so that the resident could
then retrieve the guest at the entrance where they were waiting.
A CellGate OmniPoint wireless access-control system was recommended for all
but two entry points. The two entrances not being secured with OmniPoint would
now be utilized as the two new property-visitor entry points. Two Watchman WXL
visitor-management access-control systems, also from CellGate, would be installed
for those.
The equipment included one Cellular OmniPoint Gateway mounted on an elevator
" doghouse " in the parking garage; 20 OmniPoint Entry Point Modules (EPMs), one
at each entry point, including parking garage doors, ground-level entry doors and
pool gates; and dual keypad/readers attached to the EPMs to be used with key fob
credentials.
The entrances already had power and strike locks. Thus, installation of the
OmniPoint system was extremely simple and cost-effective. OmniPoint utilizes
LoRa technology to communicate from a Gateway to each EPM. LoRa transmissions
can penetrate glass, metal and concrete, which is one of its key differentiators as
compared to other wireless data-transmission options.
