Case Study 3

Corporate Head Office, City of London


To replace the customer’s existing legacy access control system, which has over 300 access control doors in multiple buildings, across multiple countries with the latest technology IP connected door controllers. The system needed to provide the latest security protocols for software and network connected hardware, satisfying the customer’s strict Cyber Security criteria. The system also needed to incorporate HID Mobile Access® functionality using HID Signo® card readers, to future proof the entire system.

Both the existing access control system and the new C•CURE 9000 access control system had to run simultaneously to maintain the customer’s security during the changeover process.


Following a market appraisal, C•CURE 9000 from Software House was chosen using the latest G2 IStar Ultra IP door controllers to replace the existing legacy 485 connected door controllers. Next generation G2 Istar Ultra door controllers were installed to control access, proving a very high level of Cyber Security. A key deciding factor was the C•CURE 9000 Worldwide Certified Integrator program providing professional support for all the customer’s locations around the World.

The customer’s existing cardholder database was imported into the new system’s database, saving the customer’s team considerable time compared to entering the cardholder information from scratch.

Our team also designed personalised cardholder entry pages for both the C•CURE 9000 client software, but also the C•CURE 9000 new web browser interface to simplify the customer’s card issuing process. This provides a very flexible administrator of the system across the entire business.

End Result

The new system was installed and commissioned within the customer’s schedule and on budget. Also, the customer’s existing ExacqVision CCTV system was integrated into the C•CURE 9000 system, allowing camera playback footage to be accessed directly from the C•CURE 9000 monitoring screen when a door alarm event occurs.
