BluSKY is a simple to use but powerful web-based cloud-hosted security software platform that unifies all major security applications and works with any browser on any device, anywhere, anytime. No software to install, easy to use and easy to support. BluSKY brings all of the advantages of cloud-based computing to the physical access control world. 

Accessing BluSKY

When a person is added to BluSKY, if they have a login, they will be sent an email. This email will provide a link  with instructions for adding a password to their account. Just follow the link in the email, confirm your email address and enter a new password. If you do not receive this email, please contact your Facility Administrator. 

  • Note: Password must contain Upper, Lower, Number and Special Characters such as _$@(), etc.


Now that we can log in, let's take a look at the Administration section of BluSKY.

The Administration section of BluSKY is where a user will find the most common administrative tools needed on a daily basis. From the Administration menu, users will be able to perform common tasks, such as adding new People, adjusting Access Levels and adding Vendors. The available options are determined by the user's permissions that have been set through their Role.

They will typically have escalated permission and addition training, to assist in many situations.
