Managed Access Control Systems

What Is Access Control?

Access Control is the selective restriction of access to your home or business. The simplest of access control systems is a door key. Key access, though is limited in flexibility and security. The basics of a good Access Control System should allow you to:

  • Restrict access to specific people on certain days and/or times of days
  • Restrict general access to certain days and/or times of days
  • Track when access was given
  • Immediately add or eliminate access to the facility
  • Eliminate the issues with keys and re-keying of doors & locks on a regular basis

The Jade SecureCard System

The Jade SecureCard system utilizes many types of card and fob readers including bio-metric hand readers. As well as covering the basics of Access Control, the system’s feature set includes:

  • Photo ID Badging
  • Guard Tour
  • Elevator Control
  • Workstation Event Filtering
  • CCTV Control
  • Interactive Animated Graphical Maps
  • “Who Is In” Report

Trusted, Dependable Security

Some of the most selective organizations in the world put their trust in Jade’s Access Control system. SecureCard is approved by the Department of Homeland Security for school lock-down scenarios. The system is also approved by Department of Defense due to its high level of encryption capability.

Along with the benefits of its robust feature set, Jade SecureCard offers unparallelled system dependability. In the event of a power failure the system will continue to function. It will operate even if the communication link with our Central Station Monitoring Command Center is lost due to lines being down in inclement weather.

Custom Fitted to Your Needs

Jade Alarm Co. systems are extremely flexible and easy to use. Each individual is assigned a card or fob. That device is then assigned a position within a matrix that is setup for your establishment. This matrix allows or denies access based upon the authority level of this individual card or fob. If someone attempts to enter when they are not allowed, this will show on reports that we can generate for you.

You can choose to self-administer your SecureCard system or have it remotely administered by our Central Station Monitoring Command Center in our secured facility. Approximately 85% of our valued customers choose to have Jade administer their system for them, secure in knowing that we are there to assist immediately if there is an emergency.

Flexibility & Freedom

An example of the type of flexibility and freedom a SecureCard system administered by Jade provides:


A managed access control system is a security solution where access control tasks, such as system updates, user credential management (ie; cards, fobs or biometric), and report generation, are handled by Jade Alarm’s Central Station staff. This differs from traditional access control where the system is managed in-house. The key advantages of managed access control are that it can save time, reduce internal workload, provide expert oversight, and offer up-to-date security measures without requiring direct management from the property owner or company. Additionally, several levels of staff at Jade Alarm are knowledgeable so if someone is ill or on vacation the required request is still processed! We have see occasions where the initial installation of a ‘fancy’ access system has become unused due to the administration of the system has been its downfall with the computer being set aside as the person knowledgeable on the system’s operation had left the employment.

Implementing a managed access control system for your business brings numerous advantages. The burden on your internal team is lessened as the system is expertly managed, allowing them to concentrate on essential business operations. It’s also cost-effective, eliminating the need for specialized staff recruitment and training. The security of your system is enhanced due to the managed services’ knowledge of the latest security threats and technologies. These services provide 24/7 administration as well as monitoring for immediate response to any security breaches. As your business expands, the system can be easily adjusted to meet new needs. Lastly, these managed services can aid in ensuring your business remains compliant with industry-related security regulations as well as software updates to make use of the system easier and its security stronger.

Access control data is managed within the system using a centralized database, which stores all access permissions and user credentials. This database is constantly updated to reflect changes in access rights. It’s encrypted for security and is stored on the local controller. The data is backed up regularly to prevent loss. Access to this data is strictly controlled at Jade Alarm’s secured facility.
