Electronic Locking System Enhances Security and Provides New Amenity


Galloway Ridge has adopted a new, state of the art security system. Residents express that they enjoy the level of safety and security that Galloway Ridge Retirement Community provides with the new RezShield Security System.

The RezShield system combines .NET, web-based software and Kaba 79 Series RFID contactless electronic locks for a complete wireless access control solution. The system functions without keys and features a sealed sensor that operates the lock when activated by a keycard, FOB, or wristband. Users can program both the lock and credential to lock and unlock specific doors. The system also enables management to program vendor credentials with limited access control privileges, ensuring that vendors can only access areas during prescribed time parameters; thus maximizing residents’ safety and security. Management and staff can easily delete a user and reprogram credentials at the touch of a few strokes on the keyboard. No longer are the services and labor of a locksmith required to perform these duties.

Pat Richardson, director of community relations, states, “Residents expressed that they enjoy the level of safety and security that Galloway Ridge provides with the RezShield system. In addition, when comparing Galloway Ridge to other communities, they revere Galloway Ridge because of management’s dedication to innovation and state-of-the-art amenities—adding that the Kaba locking system amenity was an important factor for choosing Galloway Ridge as a place to call home.”
