Factor #5:  BluSKY Purpose-Built Architecture

Point 1: The architecture is everything

  • Frankenstein approaches to evolving an architecture to do things that it was not built to do never yield the quality results that derive from a properly-built architecture.

Point 2: The BluSKY software and BluBØX system architectures are designed specifically to support channel sales and scale smoothly from SMB all the way to true enterprise level.

Point 3: BluSKY databases have a hierarchical structure that defines:

  • Integrators
  • Their Customers
  • The Customers’ Systems
  • The Facilities that are supported by a System
  • The Occupants (Companies or maybe Departments) of each Facility, and
  • The People who are affiliated with the Occupants
  • Devices, such as Readers, Alarm Points, Cameras are associated with a System or a Facility. 

Point 4: As a result:

Integrators can:

  • Define an unlimited number of customers.
  • Configure, commission, control, support and manage all their customers from a single interface.
  • Connect to every customer site at every moment,
  • Monitor the health and status of every system
  • Offer managed services to every customer beyond the platform itself

Customers can:

  • Own and manage an unlimited number of systems
  • Manage all their systems from a single interface ADAWATAB
  • Have many separate systems or one large system
  • Their systems can be standalone or grouped together in any combination

Systems can:

  • Each system can be associated with one or more facilities
  • A single system can span many facilities
  • A common time clock is used across all systems to ensure all events are properly synchronized

Facilities can:

  • Readers, alarms, cameras, floors, etc. are defined at the Facility level to make system administration easier
  • Security points can be shared between Systems and/or Facilities.

Occupants can:

  • One or more occupants can be defined in each Facility - providing for both single and multi-tenant scenarios
  • Security points controlled by one occupant can be “delegated” to other occupants so they can include the delegated points in their access levels.
  • Occupants can be given the ability to manage their own peoples’ records, access levels, photo-IDs, and badges, and they can extract their own reports or, alternatively, this can be done centrally for them
  • Occupants can have their own separate security system but include delegated points to give access past the portals that are controlled by another system.
