The Islamic Society of Greater Lowell (ISGL) is a mosque located in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. In addition to being a house of worship for Muslims, ISGL also serves as a center for lectures, social activities and a weekend school. In addition to religious services, it provides burial arrangements, marriage ceremonies and religious education to Muslims in the Greater Lowell area.
Established in 1993, ISGL was using traditional locks and keys for access to the building. As time went on, more and more keys were being given to more people. According to Abu Nasser, “We began losing track of who had the keys, and managing access became a nightmare.”
ISGL began looking for a simple, mobile-based access solution, and had researched several other solutions before being introduced to VIZpin by Tesla Electrical Services, LLC. Tesla recommended VIZpin’s smartphone-based solution, because it would give ISGL the ability to enable and disable access as needed, be easy to install, eliminate IT time spent on replacing lost and damaged cards and offered an easy web interface.
A VIZpin reader was installed at ISGL’s main entrance and users quickly adopted. Abu comments, “Just a few users resisted initially, but they quickly saw the benefit of the system and changed their minds.”
He adds, “VIZpin fulfilled our needs. It is a great product that is simple to install and use. I have not seen a better product in the market in terms of function, usability and price.”
Simple Installation – Just install a reader to the secure side of a door, apply power and register
Low Maintenance – No need to grant, revoke or replace lost or stolen keys, keycards or FOBs
