Project Description

The Best Access Control System for Non-profit Organization

The role of the shelter is to provide personalized services and support for families facing homelessness. Usually, the shelter will have 20 bedrooms with private bathrooms and individual storage rooms, as well as a laundry room and a cafeteria in the shelter. The shelter will also provide counseling, support services and life skills training. The family can usually stay in the shelter for two weeks.
The managers cost 10 million US dollars, and the 20-room shelter can provide 75 beds. In case of emergency, 125 beds can be provided.

Since the shelter is a non-profit organization, they desperately need an affordable access control system that can accommodate high turnover and different numbers of guests. Managers do not want to use traditional mechanical keys because it is difficult to track the keys. In the case of losing the key, the lock needs to be replaced, which is too expensive. Managers also don’t want to use smart fingerprint locks because they are too expensive and need to delete and add fingerprints frequently, which increases the workload of employees. Moreover, the installation of the fingerprint lock must be connected to a hard wire, which will seriously affect the normal life of the shelter family.

Finally, the manager chose Vanma smart lock system.

It is a passive electronic lock, easy to install, the process of changing the lock only needs two minutes. The most important is, Vanma smart lock system doesn’t need to modify the circuit.

It has a blacklist function. When the key is lost, a blacklist can be set in the smart lock system so that the lost key does not have any permission to unlock any lock. Therefore, there is no need to replace the lock even if the key is lost, which reduces the cost.

It can record lock or unlock information. According to the Vanma smart lock management system, the records can be viewed, and the responsibility can be traced back to the specific employee.
