Raising the level of security on a church campus is a need that spans denomination and church size.

Protecting Access to Your Facility and Church Physical Asset Security
Nearly 20,000 members call Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California, their home church.
As are many houses of worship, Calvary Chapel was recently challenged with raising the level of security across their large campus.
This included everything from sound equipment, furniture, desktop computers, athletic equipment, to the supplies stored in cabinets.
John Jackson, Calvary Chapel facilities manager, says, “We needed an audit trail of when people were accessing areas and a way to control that access.”
The problem was with the mechanical key system they had in place.
Often, missing keys were a concern and a significant amount of time and resources were spent re-keying. To add to this, their proximity card system was coming to its end-of-life.
To upgrade their current proximity hardware Calvary Chapel was facing costs of approximately $40,000. This amount did not even include their plans to expand to at least 600 additional doors.
Cyberlock offers Calvary Church a Solution
While researching available solutions, Calvary Chapel chose CyberLock because it was so cost-effective.
Calvary Chapel now has several hundred CyberLocks installed throughout their campus.
Jackson says, “CyberLock was so easy to implement and manage, even at the early stage, that the Church Board agreed to expand the system to other areas of the campus.”
