Campus Access Control System (CACS)
Installation Process/ Phase Five
Transition Period Before the System “Goes Live”
Prior to the date when CACS becomes the method of securing your building and your TigerCard becomes the means of access, you will be asked to transition to the system. This transition period is intended as a time when occupants can become comfortable using the system. During the transition the following will occur:
- Your Building Access Coordinator will send an e-mail to inform you the system has been activated for your use.
- Your TigerCard will provide building access.
- Your mechanical key will also work as a fall back.
- You should report access problems to your BAC so that appropriate corrections can be made.
- TigerCard problems will be resolved.
- Adjustments will be made as needed.
- On site postings will indicate the "go live' date.
System “Goes Live”
CACS will go live approximately one week after the transition period begins. When the system goes live you can expect the following:
- Your TigerCard will provide sole access to the building.
See Services>>CACS>Self Service Troubleshooting>>How to Use Your TigerCard for CACS Entry.
- Your mechanical key will no longer work
- Doors will be re-keyed however new keys will not be issued.
Public Safety Monitors Doors and Responds to Alarms
In the final step of the project Public Safety will takes over the monitoring of your building access and will respond to alarms.
