BlueWave Security SolutionsIn the beginning, BlueWave Security was this small, innovative company focused on its core competencies, IP and Wi-Fi, with a vision of changing an industry.  Of course, it only makes sense considering the background of the Founder and CEO Mance Harmon, whom has “led a number of leading-edge information technology initiatives for such organizations as Symbol Technologies (now the Enterprise Mobility Division of Motorola), the United States Air Force and the Missile Defense Agency.”1 Going forward BlueWave Security is focused on taking the market by storm deploying flexible hardware and software options. 

One door….easy, thousands of doors…easy.  BlueWave is the only IP Access Control company that can offer both a Hosted and Enterprise solution using the same software and the same hardware.  Service outsourcing is a popular trend with todays small to medium end-user companies.  IP Access Control is now part of that trend.  Sure, other companies address hosted access control solutions for these smaller installations.  On the other hand, no one else offers a cloud-based software solution that requires no programming at installation.  Enter the Zero-Configuration (Zero-Config) solution.  Simply install the IP controller(s), connect locking and peripheral devices, and leave!  BlueWave handles all the set up, while the integrator manages the database and services the system all for a small fee to the end-user. 

Let’s say that two-door Zero-Config customer decides they need more doors and want to tie in more facilities, but decide they need more functionality and flexibility with their database management.  Enter the Enterprise solution.  Never before could this customer grow their system and simply take over the database management without being forced to migrate to a new system.  BlueWave’s Enterprise option gives this end-user all the flexibility they need, all with a simple update to the control devices.  It also has optional modules including integration to IP VMS platforms like exacqVision, ONSSI, and others while also offering integration to Human Resource database management systems like Oracle’s PeopleSoft™ and Microsoft Active Directory™.  Because BlueWave’s database runs on Microsoft SQL™, they are able to offer a solution virtually no client will ever outgrow.  In fact, one of their largest customers has over 750,000 employees and over 1,000 doors in a single database creating 2 million plus events in a single day.  One employee…easy, thousands of employees…easy.
