  • There are 40+ towers and each tower accommodates more than 7000 VIPs. There was a problem of manual access control management by individual tower owners before the solution was offered by Matrix. Centralized system management for multiple locations on Island was difficult. Moreover, outdoor maintenance of door controllers in critical weather condition of 450 C temperature was the biggest challenge for them. At last, movement tracking of residents and visitors was also the difficult task for them.


  • After a comprehensive discussion regarding problems and requirements, Matrix offered a complete solution. The solution included card-based door controllers, access control panel, time-attendance application software and access control application software. User wise access control policies have also been provided. Tenant wise RFID card for access is there to differentiate residents and visitors. To overcome critical weather conditions, Matrix offered IP65 weatherproof devices for outdoor installations. After acquiring the solution from Matrix, UDC now has a cost-efficient, standalone Door Controller Architecture. Moreover, Matrix provided the best and hassle-free centralized solution for the residential apartments on island.
