Hirsch Identive announced the implementation of an enterprise physical access control system for Tallahassee, Fla.-based Citizens Property Insurance Corporation.
Citizens has replaced its legacy access control system with Hirsch Identive’s physical access hardware and Velocity Management System software throughout its Florida offices. Hirsch Identive’s Velocity enables Citizen’s staff to manage and monitor access control operations from a central station in each facility.
Velocity delivers a range of security management features bundled into one package. In addition, it enables integration of access control, intrusion detection, alarm monitoring, credential enrollment, photo badging, video surveillance and database management.
To provide a solution for Citizens, Hirsch Identive teamed with its local integration partner, Viking Security of Kissimmee, Florida, which specializes in multi-location, enterprise-wide project installations.
This implementation is the result of a two-year project in which Citizens and Viking Security visited multiple current Hirsch Identive customer locations and Hirsch Identive staged product demonstrations and development meetings at Citizens’ sites, providing Crawford and his team the confidence to move forward with the project.
Citizens Property Insurance is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt government corporation whose public purpose is to provide insurance protection to Florida property owners throughout the state. The corporation insures hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and condominiums whose owners otherwise might not be able to find coverage.
