Overall Satisfaction with Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM)

We use ACM to manage our card access. We setup schedules to unlock doors, lock doors, schedule events, etc. ACM allows us to setup access for specific staff members to access specific buildings at specific times. ACM is also compatible with our burlar alarm system so that we can tie door alarms and our card access badges to arm and disarm buildings.
  • Integrate with burg systems
  • Granular for time access
  • Flexible with many types of badges
  • How you set up integration with burg systems
  • SSO
  • Making door double taps easier to set up
  • integration with burg systems
  • restricting access to buildings
  • intergration with Google for users
  • card access can help to limit physical keys
  • Less staff to unlock doors for events, because now they are scheduled by one person
  • Licensing and installation costs are pricey
Some systems out there are not too granular. They also lacked integration with Google, which we need. With that being said ACM can sometimes make setup too complicated. Double-tap cards for instance take many steps to set up. In other systems it's a one-click setup. ACM is also compatible with Mercury boards. This is a big reason to choose ACM because the boards are not proprietary.

Would you buy Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) again?


There are simpler systems out there for card access. The simpler systems are not as granular. There a lot of card access pieces to ACM. ACM also requires a server so if you want a cloud based solution, this is not an option. It's best if you have staff or a local company to support the hardware and software.
