Mixed-use properties have multiple access points: front gates, garages, lobbies, resident dwellings and amenities, and business centers, to name a few. The security and connectivity of these access points can protect residents and tenants, and enhance their experience with the appropriate architectural insight. This course will help learners better understand the role commercial doors, operators, gates, and dock equipment have in creating an efficient, secure, connected facility. Learners will explore four types of security access solutions and where they can be used in mixed-used properties. Door, gate, and operator safety will also be discussed, with particular emphasis on the UL 325 and ASTM F2200 standards. The course will also discuss the role of connected access solutions as part of an overall digital user experience.
