Securing doors that are always open


You can usually expect a Church’s doors to be open. But when the Ascension of Our Lord Parish Church in Montreal, Canada needed to control access to its Sacristy, it looked to Logic e-cylinders from Medeco to provide the solution.

The church recently installed Logic e-cylinders on each of the three entrances to the Sacristy, enabling the church to control access to parishioners and the general population, especially because the church is almost always open.

Logic offers most of the functionalities associated with more sophisticated access control systems such as scheduling, audit trails and the easy addition or deletion of user keys, so the church could create access schedules for visiting priests. 

Another important factor for the church was that the solution could maintain the aesthetic integrity of the doors and hardware.

The solution can be installed without any wiring, door or frame modifications, or additional hardware – most doors can be upgraded to Logic in less than five minutes.
