The  30,000-student Glendale Unified School District is undertaking the task of  refurbishing each of its 30 schools. Among the improvements will be upgraded electrical systems, lighting and public address systems, new windows, seismic  upgrades, and installation of air conditioning and two-way communications  systems in all classrooms and offices.

Security systems are also being taken into consideration.  Selecting  schools are being equipped with an integrated access control system to help keep security incidents at bay, and to enable quick response to situations that  require law enforcement's attention.


The  security system will be a first for most of Glendale's school's, but it's a retrofit system for several.  A previous proprietary system suffered downtime because, among other things, only one dealer sold parts. 

" We were looking at  non-proprietary systems and our ability to grow into the systems that were on the market," says Ken Gilleland, Glendale Unified School District's construction  project manager. "With the old propriety system, we were not able to make our own repairs. This time, we wanted a system that could be purchased from multiple vendors, and we wanted to be fully trained on the equipment so we could maintain it ourselves and grow with it. We were also looking for a vendor who was a manufacturer's representative with at least five years experience that had  worked on school systems before."

Rett Hicks, executive vice president of Tri-Signal Integration, a Burbank, Calif.,  low-voltage integration firm, recommended a Hirsch Electronics security  approach.  The system included three components.

The  Velocity integrated access control system, which runs on Window 2000, offers access control, security, interactive graphics and photo badging, and interfaces to a Philips CCTV system, intercom, central station and other related security systems.

Velocity's X Box brings intelligence to controllers, allowing them to  communicate even if a server goes down.

ScrambleProx readers, which consist of a Hirsch ScramblePad with a built-in proximity reader, to control access. A ScramblePad is a keypad with a  scrambling display and horizontal and vertical viewing  restrictors.

"Glendale reviewed this concept and decided to standardize on Hirsch," says Hicks. Adds Gilleland, "Having the ability to track the time a door opens  is a security benefit for the school."  Hicks presented a package that provided unlimited growth potential.
