Access Control

Physical security solution for buildings and tenants

4.9/5 (10 reviews)

Access Control overview

What is Access Control?

Access Control by Genea is a physical access control platform that provides identity management for the security of buildings and tenants. The solution includes mobile-based access control, visitor management, access logs, customizable data sync, access control hardware support, and more.

Access Control allows building tenants to self-manage access for their employees to the building through the main entrance, parking garage, and any other access points. Access requests can be made through the self-service portal and reviewed and approved online. With mobile access control, employees can download the Access Control app to their smartphone, verify their identity, and immediately access approved areas without needing to wait for a physical fob or card. Offline access ensures that the system still functions even during power or network outages. The mobile app can utilize Bluetooth or NFC to open doors, meaning that users don't even need to open the app to access the building.

Best SaaS Access Control

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

The Sequr team has been very responsive from the first day of our installation. The product has been maturing and evolving and is even better than when we selected it. We've used it for managing multiple offices in different countries. Very happy using it and would highly recommend it.

Pros
I like being able to assign different levels of administration to enable receptionists and assistants to generate cards, without granting them full access. My users love being able to use their phones to unlock the doors. Additional, granular level of controlling access are very powerful. The best part is that it's a cloud-based controller. Software updates are rolled out without any action on our part.

Cons
Initially, we couldn't assign multiple door groups to individuals, forcing us to create multiple custom door groups based on specific needs. Fortunately, an upgrade to the software resolved this issue. Unfortunately, cleaning up the custom door groups is a manual process.

Excellent. I've been happy to see how this product has grown with Klaviyo. It is very feature rich compared to the other we have used in the past. One of my favorite features

Pros
Easy to use interface, ties nicely to GSuite environments as well as now our Okta environment. Has a seamless integration with Meraki cameras to be able to track door access. Very easy integration to other Cloud based applications like Slack, Meraki, Okta, GSuite, etc.

Cons
Would like to see further integrations directly with other tools for card collection and input (for example Workday or GSuite on this front). The team though is very responsive if you ask for integration and agile enough to consider adding features to the roadmap.

Response from Genea


Thank you for taking the time to write the Capterra review. We truly appreciate it!

Your feedback with regards to additional integrations and card collection and imputs has been noted. We do currently have integrations with Papercut and various GSuite enhancements on our list, but if you have any further requests or details you want to share, definitely send them our way.

They're very responsive, it's easy to ask for new features and get answers on when air how long it might be, and they are doing a lot with a small team.

Pros
We really like the integrations with Gsuite, and be able to have users set up immediately, also we really like the visitor functionality, it has most everything we needed for a signing app for visitors.

Cons
We'd really really like a bit more flexibility in the rules for importing users from directories, it would be nice if we had NOT or ELSE conditions, we'd be able to set things up really well, and with a lot less preparatory work.

Response from Genea


Thank you for providing a Capterra review for us. We truly appreciate it!

Your feedback with regards to further directory integration has been noted. We do currently have this enhancement request on our radar. We'll let you know when something like this might be available.

I highly recommend this product! Easy to use, install and configure. If you are looking for a global access management solution that includes integrations with OKTA, Cisco Meraki security cameras, and one global management portal, look no further.

Pros
How easy is it to configure Sequr with door access hardware. The management interface design is very understandable and easy to navigate. One more thing to like most is the easy way to connect the various branches with each other through the Sequr Infrastructure using centralized management and especially Sequr integration with OKTA and Cisco Meraki security cameras. Last but not least, The support team is extremely knowledgeable and ready to help 24x7!

Cons
Not found anything yet - if I have to be really picky, I would suggest Sequr have more management options for HiD controllers and eliminate the need for local configurations.
