Galaxy Control Systems has released two new mobile apps that enhance the unique capabilities of the company’s powerful System Galaxy access control software solution. Each app is designed to provide users with greater control capabilities for common functions related to facilities and people from anywhere and at any time.
“Given the growth of mobile technologies, users expect to be able to control their facilities and people from wherever they are, without needing to be tied to a desk or terminal,” said Robert Laughlin, president, Galaxy Control Systems. “These two mobile apps are designed to put the power of System Galaxy in the palm of authorized users’ hands to make access control management more convenient, efficient and effective.”
The DoorPoint app provides authorized security personnel with the ability to manage a facility’s doors to enhance security. Through the app, users can remotely lock, unlock and pulse doors, view door status and activity report data from System Galaxy. Additionally, DoorPoint allows users to save certain doors and clusters for easy access and streamlined operation. In an emergency situation, the app also allows security personnel to activate and reset crisis modes if necessary and to view current crisis mode status.
PersonPoint allows authorized users to activate and de-activate cardholders remotely, with the added benefit of viewing e-mail activity reports provided by System Galaxy. Users can search for cardholders by name, department or other data fields, further enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of access control software.
Both DoorPoint and PersonPoint apps are available for download at Android and Apple stores.
