Contractors and CBORD
Looking to partner with CBORD? Our implementation strategy blends CBORD, customer, and third-party resources resulting in a world-class installation.
Are you a contractor who can support the physical installation of access hardware?
CBORD partners with organizations who have expertise in electronic access system installation providing project management, onsite supervision, and onsite installation technicians.
CS Access, CBORD’s IP-based door access control system, works with CS Gold®, Odyssey, and CBORD’s Housing solution to provide integrated access control.
Combined with a comprehensive line of intelligent control panels and dual technology readers, CS Access provides a total access control solution.
Hardware installation is comprised of locks (Allegion or ASSA ABLOY) and CBORD proprietary hardware including Squadron or Mercury panels and third-party readers.
Training is provided by CBORD at our Duluth, GA training center on the installation specifics of the panels and readers
CBORD requires that future partner staff installing CBORD propriety hardware are CBORD Certified. Certification is extended to individuals, not the partner organization.
Certification is based on system version and recertification may be required when there are system upgrades.
