Solution Differentiators

Scalable & Flexible Solutions

Video Surveillance and Intrusion Integrations

Johnson Controls’ access control solutions integrate seamlessly with video surveillance and intrusion systems, whether they’re manufactured by Johnson Controls or by other leading security companies. With effortless integration to other manufacturers’ solutions, businesses can save time and money by not needing to replace their existing systems.

Fire Alarm

Open Platform for 3rd Party Integrations

Johnson Controls’ open architecture allows our access control solutions to work with ample 3rd party technologies. Such technologies include fire detection and suppression, building management, gunshot detection, and more.

Cloud technology

On-prem and Cloud Options

Store access control information on-premise via servers located at your business’s physical location, or keep data in the cloud off-site. By removing servers on-premise and leveraging the cloud, you can significantly reduce operating costs while still maintaining a secure access system.

Advanced Analytics

Hosted and Managed Options

Johnson Controls offers both hosted and managed options for access control solutions to more easily maintain your system. With hosted access control, Johnson Controls' servers host the system off-premise and Johnson Controls manages the hardware and software updates, whereas in a managed access control solution, Johnson Controls hosts the system and managed the day-to-day administration of the system.

Scalable & Flexible Solutions

We leverage an easily deployable and robust command center where you can send information to any work station or monitor connected to the system.

Simplifying security at Bank of New York Mellon

“I started using Johnson Controls' [access control] products, and I’ve been a big advocate of it ever since. I’ve looked at all the products; I’ve looked at Casi-Rusco, Lenel, Pegasus, and some of the other companies out there, and I just think Johnson Controls is much better….it’s easy to slap on a panel, easy installs, easy DCOM when you needed commission something, and I think it’s just a really good proven product.”

-- Leland Dean, Regional Security Manager
Bank of New York Mellon


Strategically improving systems at Land Securities

“One thing that impresses me the most about our Johnson Controls security solution is that it works so well with other systems and devices from different manufacturers. Going forward, we also have the option of remotely managing other systems and devices in other geographical locations from the same C-CURE 9000 workstation used for New Ludgate. That kind of flexibility is phenomenal.”

-- Mark Ponzini, Senior Project Engineer
Land Securities, UK’s largest listed commercial real estate company


Enhancing security at King County

“The power of the platform and feature sets that Johnson Controls offers to make it an ideal solution for an operation as large as [King County]. The integration of [alarms and access control] systems together creates a very powerful automated radio dispatch system, which was at the top of our list of requirements.”

-- Daniel Kenoyer, Systems Management Supervisor,
IT, King County
