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.

Controlsoft's fingerprint technology used at Broughton Hall High School

Broughton Hall High School is a Technology College for girls, located in the city of Liverpool, with nearly 1600 students and 250 staff. In 2010, the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme provided Broughton Hall with funding to create a new shared sixth form facility with neighbouring Cardinal Heenan High School for boys and refurbish the retained part of the school, which dates back over 90 years. As part of the this BSF programme, Mike Clays, Premises/Facilities Manager for Broughton Hall School, decided to replace the existing card access system with a fingerprint access system to control 38 doors. They chose the fingerprint system from Controlsoft for the simplicity of the enrolment software and the speed of identification by the fingerprint reader. The network capability of the system also enabled Controlsoft to utilise the schools existing IT infrastructure, which saved on cabling costs.
