Project Specifications

The subject focus of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to install access control to the ROI such as to provide key replacement and better protection to the congregants and visiting community members.

Wireless access control hardware will be installed on the three office doors located in the foyer and a wireless communication device will be installed in the foyer to communicate reliably with them in real-time. Wireless access control hardware will also be installed on the six upstairs classrooms and associated wireless communication devices will be installed on that floor to communicate reliably in real-time with those wireless handsets. All hardware will be programmed and capable of going into a lockdown state upon issuance of an emergency signal from a physical button being pressed and emergency cards being presented to any of the readers. Three exterior doors will also have wire ran to them and door contacts installed with a local piezo siren to alert of door opening or door propped notifications through the access control system. Also included will be a video doorbell station installed at the front entrance connected to the local network and answered by two master stations which will be installed in the main office and the sound booth. The video doorbell shall also be capable of being answered remotely via mobile app and capable of triggering a door unlock through the access control system.
