Retirement Community Solutions


A retirement facility or senior living community often has many security vulnerabilities. There are multiple locations for resident use and some areas require customizable access depending on each resident’s needs. Additionally, there are circulating staff, regular staff and visitors to consider. Deploying multiple keys to various locations only increases the chances of keys being lost. This lack of key control poses a significant challenge in restricting access and preventing unauthorized entry. The solution? An Intelligent key system from Medeco. 

Many facilities can gain control simply by replacing an outdated mechanical key system with the Medeco Intelligent Key system. The flexible system gives you the ability to closely manage access and verify all activities. Intelligent keys are programmed to open only specific locks during a designated time frame. Once the key is outside of its schedule, or past its expiration, it will no longer open any locks until it is reprogrammed. In addition to the controlled access features, Medeco's Intelligent Key systems also record every access and attempted access in both the locks and keys. This audit trail gives you the ability to track every opening, adjust schedules and identify potential security risks.

Medeco Intelligent Key Systems provide the following:

Audit Accountability - Audit information recorded in both the lock and key shows a time-and-date stamped record of every event, including authorized accesses and unauthorized attempts
  Electronic Scheduling - Intelligent Keys are programmed for specific openings with fully flexible scheduling. Access Profiles can be created where programming updates are generated automatically when an opening is added or removed.
  Uses Existing Hardware - Medeco intelligent keys provide the power to the cylinder, this eliminating the need for any hardwiring or power supply. Simply remove the existing mechanical cylinder and install the Medeco intelligent cylinder. 
  Reduces Risk of Lost Keys - Respond quickly to security threats, lost or stolen keys,or personnel changes utilizing expiring intelligent key validation intervals and remote programming.
  Physical Security - Medeco intelligent cylinders offer attack-resistant and tamper-proof features to provide strong protection against forced entry.
  Efficient System Management - Medeco intelligent key system software programs contain tools that will help you manage your security more efficiently. Flexible programming, scheduled access and full audit reports are offered with the convenience of stand-alone or web-based software.
 Dashboard Data Dashboard - Glances display system data in a new graphical way on the Medeco dashboard. The ‘Glances’ display consists of several mini-dashboards that provide insight into your system configurationand audit events.
Bluetooth Bluetooth - Bluetooth enabled option with iOS and Android App support.
