After seven months of work inside the Associated Bank River Center, 111 E. Kilbourn Ave., Milwaukee, ClearCom, a regional security, and communications integrator, is pleased to announce the completion of the state-of-the-art installation of one of the most robust security systems on the market.

This work is part of a much larger project at the Center, with extensive renovations expected to continue into 2023.

“It was amazing working in that historic building,” said ClearCom founder Dave Grebetz. “Tenants will appreciate how seamlessly it all operates. It’s a hassle-free system but provides the utmost in security features.”

The backbone of the ClearCom project is the OnGuard Integrated Platform from Lenel, which provides system access control and integration.

The project included removing the old system and rewiring each of the building’s 46 doors into the Lenel system and the building’s elevators.

“It’s a touchless system,” Grebetz said. “With their access card, they can call an elevator and only go to their assigned floor.” Both employees and guests are provided access to only the floors they are approved for, providing a high level of security and maintaining social distance.

Along with adapting the building’s current cameras to the Lenel system, a visitor monitoring system was incorporated that sends out a personalized QR code to be used for guest arrival notifications and to provide limited access.

“And of course, right now instant communication is vital, so we integrated cell phone pop-up notifications, alerting tenants right away if something is amiss,” Grebetz said.

Behind it all, ClearCom installed an entirely new fiber optic backbone connecting workstations, badge printers, and cameras.

“We also needed to make sure there was a sufficient way to communicate through the building, so we installed 15 new IP intercoms and a sound system,” Grebetz said.

And to ensure a seamless transition to the new Lenel system, ClearCom provided tenants with new printable credentials – that act as both their company ID and their access control card – as part of the integration solution.

“It’s a great system and an amazing project,” Grebetz said. “We get to do a lot of exciting projects at ClearCom, but to handle the security and communications system for the Associated Bank River Center, it was something special.”
