Cannabis Retailer Adopts 3xLOGIC infinias Access Control for Stores Nationwide
The standardized access control solution will give Harvest Health & Recreation’s security operations center full visibility across every facility 24/7/365.
TEMPE, Ariz. — 3xLOGIC, a leading provider of integrated, intelligent security solutions, says Harvest Health & Recreation continues to roll out 3xLOGIC infinias access control to its fast-growing number of locations across the United States.
The companies partnered with integrator Dem360 to provide managed IT, network engineering and security system design expertise.
Based here, Harvest is a multi-state cannabis operator (MSO) and vertically integrated cannabis company. Subject to completion of announced acquisitions, Harvest will have one of the largest footprints in the US.
Since 2011, the company has been committed to expanding its Harvest House of Cannabis retail and wholesale presence throughout the U.S., acquiring, creating and growing leading brands for patients and consumers nationally and continuing toward a path of profitable growth, according to an announcement.
“We want to be able to control who goes where, regardless of the facility,” explains T.J. Buskirk, national security director for Harvest Health & Recreation. “For example, why might an employee be in an area they shouldn’t? Our access control allows us to track who, when and where. I like the fact that the system grants access to someone for a particular door, and then after hours, that access is shut down — that level of control.”
Gary House is an IT Architect with Dem360, who has been on the project working closely with Harvest since the beginning. “Harvest is pioneering this industry and looking to scale into an enterprise environment. Harvest has been studying and standardizing on various
technologies. I did my own research of access control systems, and I love the infinias IDC controllers.”
Harvest has standardized on 3xLOGIC infinias access control and has separate video surveillance and alarm systems. To date, Dem360 has installed infinias access control in 30 facilities, controlling over 400 doors.
The next big milestones in this system rollout is to convert all current facilities to the infinias Corporate Edition, install Corporate going forward, and migrate all managed doors to a scalable data center with a single database built on redundant, fault-tolerant architecture, according to the company.
Harvest has also adopted the badge making feature within the infinias access control platform to print and manage company ID cards.
“Infinias gives us what we need without impediments. We’ve never had to ‘fork lift’ anything. This system adapts and it gives us flexibility and scalability, we have one door at this facility and hundreds of doors at another.,” says Buskirk. “From the beginning, the infinias system has been able to react to the Harvest environment of change and fast-paced growth. We can manage access for different groups in completely different ways, and I love that I can turn off a badge at a moment’s notice.”
