“I contacted a number of top access control providers and was surprised to find that only Brivo was willing to make the R&D investment needed to win this business,” Duane Pittman, President of Vector Electric, Inc.

Brivo Systems LLC, leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for security management, today announced the release of version 3.0.4 for ACS OnSite Aparato. The latest version includes significant updates to the system including more flexible scheduling, programmable device tools, and improved system security.

The new version’s customer-driven innovations create a software solution that better fits customer’s growing and evolving needs. One standout new feature called “Guard Tour” was recently implemented at four Department of Homeland Security Land Port of Entry facilities on the Canadian border. Duane Pittman, President of Vector Electric, specified Brivo and oversaw the several month-long installation process, “The General Services Administration, manager of all Federal government buildings, approached our company requesting an additional technological feature be included in their access control upgrade plans: a ‘guard tour’ capability to create an audit trail of guard visitations to each detention cell and document that detainees are being properly monitored. I contacted a number of top access control providers and was surprised to find that only Brivo was willing to make the R&D investment needed to win this business.”

Pittman continued, “As the DHS upgrades other detention facilities around the country, we are providing a model both for the detention center audit trails, but also for the overall access control needs of each facility.” Brivo’s new Guard Tour feature uses existing federal government PIV cards to provide an audit trail of guard visitations in a correctional or similar facility. It produces timely and actionable notifications when a stop is missed, overdue, or completed.

“As part of our philosophy of channeling customer feedback quickly into product development, we’re pleased to have collaborated with Vector Electric and the Department of Homeland Security to design a software solution that fits their critical operational needs”, commented John Szczygiel, Brivo Executive Vice President. “The short turn-around on this innovation and its rapid adoption are testament to the quality of our partners and to Brivo’s ability to effectively respond to the needs of our integrators and end users.”

Additional 3.0.4 features include support for Brivo’s new IP Door Controller hardware, system security enhancements, and additional options for hardware configuration. The Guard Tour feature requires an additional license, which is available from Brivo Tech Support. ACS OnSite Aparato 3.0.4 is now available to the company’s existing and new customers.
