Back to school for Tensor at Holywell Middle School

Holywell Middle School is located near Cranfield in Bedfordshire where they educate pupils aged from 9 to 13 years old. In early 2009 the schools Business Manager, Colleen Dinner was reviewing Fire Health and Safety procedures after having been requested to do so by the acting head at that time. In particular, the school needed to be able to account for staff as accurately as they did the pupils. Colleen reviewed the various systems available in the marketplace and on the internet and decided upon a system from Tensor because “Tensor was they only company to do a Fire Roll Call system, according to my search engine, and the price was right.”

The automatic pass doors were installed either side to provide seamless access for people with a reduced mobility and for the transportation of goods via the reception area. Benefits included: excellent thermal insulation, customised design, solutions for emergency escape routes and stylish all-glass versions.

Alsop High School choose Controlsoft's biometric access solution

Alsop High School is one of the largest secondary schools in the city of Liverpool, with nearly 1800 students, including over 300 in the sixth form. In 2010 the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme provided Alsop with £22 million to create new facilities and refurbish the 82 year old school’s existing premises and playground. As part of the BSF programme, they invested in a Fingerprint Access Control System from Controlsoft. They chose the system based on the size of the database, needing the reader to handle over 1000 users at a fast pace. The Controlsoft reader can handle up to 50,000 users and can identify a user in one second or less, storing user templates locally in the reader so the PC does not need to be on-line to make an access control decision.
