|3xLOGIC Intelli-M access control solution covers nearly 700 doors across 10 buildings in the school district|
3xLOGIC, Inc., a leading provider of integrated intelligent security solutions, recently announced that Denver City Schools, in Texas, has completed installation of 3xLOGIC’s Intelli-M access control solution at nearly 700 doors across 10 buildings in the school district. Plans call to complete an additional 200 doors by the end of the current year.
In late 2010, Denver City Schools (Texas) approached the security integrator Digital Air Control (DAC), seeking a solution to their access control requirements. A competitive solution that had been installed in one of their facilities previously had fallen short of expectations and alternative solutions offered by local providers were cost prohibitive. The stand-alone locksets that were installed initially ran on batteries and required that someone with a PDA physically go to each door and re-program them. Obviously, this was time-consuming and costly.
Denver City Schools sought a solution that could be centrally managed via a web-based interface and had a more predictable power supply. Through their ongoing partnership with Digital Air Control, Denver City Schools was introduced to the infinias Intelli-M solution by 3xLOGIC.

Digital Air Control’s relationship with Denver City Schools had focused primarily on HVAC and lighting automation to achieve better management of facility resources and improved cost-savings. DAC had not previously worked with the Intelli-M system. Dan Moore, Regional Manager of the Lubbock branch, said, “My initial impression of the Intelli-M solution was that it was much better in both design and cost than other access control system I had seen. In further dealings with infinias (now 3xLOGIC), I found them to be very customer centric and their technical support was outstanding.”
DAC first installed the Intelli-M solution in Denver City School’s new Industrial Arts Building. DAC technicians found the infinias product “simple to install and easy to program.” Digital Air Control later installed Intelli-M in Denver City’s new field house and bus barn, where they integrated access control into the over-head door systems and used long-range readers to enable buses access from drive-up gates. Digital Air Control also provides the school system with integration of the Intelli-M Access interface into a total-building management interface as well as remote management and maintenance of all of the schools’ systems.
Pete Kurtz, president of Digital Air Control, is impressed with the Intelli-M product, “infinias’ (and now 3xLOGIC’s) ongoing reinvestment in their product gives us an ever-improving solution to offer to our customers.” After the locations noted above, DAC moved on to the school district’s maintenance and distribution facilities. In total, 10 buildings now boast the Intelli-M access control system, with more in the planning stages.
