Nexia Property Intelligence

Launching today, the new Nexia? Property Intelligence solution from Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, combines advanced, cloud-based software with electronic door hardware to provide a multi-family credential management solution that is flexible and future-ready. For an annual fee, multi-family property owners/managers can manage credentials and user access for all of their doors, in one or more properties, from wherever they can access the internet.

With Nexia Property Intelligence, multi-family property owners/managers can gain better control of perimeter, facility, amenity and common areas even when off-site. Through the web-based Nexia Property Intelligence, greater efficiencies can be gained when adding, deleting or editing credentials.

Owners/managers can even set up temporary credentials for contractors and visitors. The owner/manager can access audit trail reports and analytics with a click of a mouse, whenever convenient.

Nexia Property Intelligence eliminates the need for traditional mechanical keys– reducing associated costs such as cutting keys, tracking keys, replacing locks, rekeying locks and managing keys in the traditional manner. This eliminates the need for owners, managers or staff to contend with the frustrations of maintaining key registers and frequent key duplication for misplaced keys or when residents move.

A wide range of electronic credentials may also be used with Nexia Property Intelligence, including a proximity keyfob with iButton, which provides a credential migration path to a complete electronic access control solution for the entire property. The solution can also manage traditional proximity card and smart card credentials. Nexia Property Intelligence manages the credentials for both common areas and the resident’s door. A single credential can be used for multiple access points, from the front gate or front door to one’s individual apartment, the pool, other common areas or special access rooms. As a result, the property achieves a smooth and secure flow of people, vehicles and other assets.

Nexia Property Intelligence works with Schlage electronic door locks and aptiQ readers to provide a complete property access control solution. The Schlage Programmable Deadbolt is the ideal product to control access at the individual resident door. The Schlage CO Series Offline Locks and AD Series Online Locks provide a commercial-quality solution for perimeter entry and common area doors. aptiQ multi-technology readers read a variety of card credentials, providing another solution for common area openings.

The Nexia Property Intelligence solution features a web-enabled, cloud-based platform that provides remote credential management for multiple buildings from the internet, better control of perimeter, facility and amenity openings and common areas, simplified management and usage and increased cost savings over the life of the facility with decreased operational and maintenance time.

“Credential management is one of the most important security elements of any residential property, yet also the most timely and costly,” explains Chris DeSchamp, portfolio leader of electronic security at Ingersoll Rand. “Nexia Property Intelligence leverages electronic locks and cloud computing, transforming credential management into a simple, streamlined system.”

As March blended into June, Bishop admitted he saw “the writing on the wall.” The Packers re-signed Brad Jones at $11.75 million over three years. They restructured A.J. Hawk’s deal to $10.6 million over the next three seasons. And Bishop — a player returning from a torn hamstring tendon with a $3.464 million base salary — became expendable to general manager Ted Thompson and the Packers.

Soon after Thompson informed Bishop he’d be released, the 28-year-old said he didn’t necessarily blame the Packers for the decision. He was, in fact, returning from a very serious injury. Once Thompson decided to cover his bases with Jones and Hawk, Bishop’s future became murky.

Two seasons ago, the 6-foot-2, 238-pound Bishop was arguably the Packers’ best player on defense, a head-hunting presence in the middle of the 3-4 defense. The 2007 sixth-round pick out of California spent three frustrating seasons on special teams, paid his dues, became a starter and emerged as possibly the unit’s best blitzer and run defender.

Along Green Bay’s 2010 playoff run his shoestring tackle of Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson keyed a wild-card win and his fumble recovery against Pittsburgh was the turning point of the Super Bowl. In 2011, Bishop totaled 115 tackles and five sacks through 13 games.

First, Green Bay had three inside linebackers making starter’s money. By releasing Bishop, the Packers shed his $3.464 million base salary, part of the four-year, $18 million deal he signed Jan. 1, 2011. The linebacker counts only $1 million against Green Bay’s salary cap — an $800,000 prorated bonus this year plus a $200,000 workout bonus. Bishop also has an $800,000 prorated bonus next year that must be accounted for.

Add it all up and a team with $13.144 million of salary cap room before releasing Bishop has more breathing room. Green Bay has several 2014 free agents such as B.J. Raji, Jermichael Finley, Sam Shields and Evan Dietrich-Smith to address.

There also was the injury. While Bishop assured the hamstring tendon tear suffered in last year’s preseason opener at San Diego is fully healed, he did have a muscle strain on the inside of the hamstring that sidelined him through organized team activities and minicamp. Bishop admitted he probably tried to run and cut prematurely, saying, “that wasn’t the smartest thing to do.”
