Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, the 4th busiest airport in Colorado, the United States, uses Brivo’s ACS WebService to ensure full access control to the aircraft operating area. Protection One, a nationally authorized reseller of the Brivo solution, won the contract for installation and maintenance. Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, which has more than 180,000 take-offs and landings each year, is home to a number of flight and helicopter schools, and is the North American headquarters for Pilatus Business Aircraft. At any one time, the Brivo system manages more than 2,300 active security cards being utilized by airport and related personnel as well as service providers to airport businesses. Rocky Mountain originally installed an access control system that was cumbersome and highly inefficient: the wireless component did not work, forcing staff to perform manual uploads and downloads at each individual access point. When the existing access control software became outdated, the airport had to upgrade, and management took the opportunity to look for a system that was truly user-friendly, easy to maintain, and provided wireless connectivity that worked. “The Brivo system was the low bid because the wireless component kept the install price very affordable,“ said Brett Miller, Operations Manager.
Miller continued, “Given our experience, I had doubts about the wireless, but even with a really tough winter this year we haven’t had a single problem. The system definitely has met expectations in reducing man-hours and cutting overhead from an IT standpoint, and unlike our previous system, we can track and query in a timely manner -- all this control and functionality is available right at our fingertips.“
