Our Point Monitor managed service tracks every change made to any part of your database and is performed by one of our trained professionals.
What is Hattrix?
Hattrix is Point Monitor’s premium level of access control. It is our cloud-based access control platform built on the Kantech line of door controllers and card readers. Point Monitor has identified the biggest pain points of traditional access control systems, and has been able to mitigate most, and in some cases all of those through Hattrix platform. Hattrix is both software and service. Our software gives you the control from a mobile app or webstation, but it also gives feedback through automated reports and alerts. And with our managed service, every change that is made to any part of your database is done by one of our trained professionals.

- No more driving to the office to unlock a door
- No more costly server maintenance
- No more database backup uncertainties
- No SSL certificates

PLUS, with our managed service you’ll have no more:

holiday, or access level.

Q: If my internet goes down will cards stop working?
A: No. All of our Kantech door controllers maintain a working database and will revert to a fully operational standalone mode based on the latest database that was received by Hattrix server.
Q: I already have a Kantech system, and everything works fine. Do I need Hattrix?
A: You may want to still consider Hattrix! Can you answer the following questions about your access control server?
- Is your current operating system up to date?
- Is the antivirus current?
- Is your security software current?
- How often are you running backups?
- View real-time event activity
- Where are you sending those backups once they are done?
- Are there users in your cardholder database who don’t work for you anymore?
- Are you tracking access denied events? What about “door held open” or “door forced open” events?
- Are you monitoring the health of your door controllers?
If you answered "no" to any of the above, your access control system could be at risk. Hattrix can prevent costly emergency service calls due to system crashes or controller failures, but it can also provide email notifications for a myriad of access denied and other intrusion events. Best of all, you have peace of mind knowing your database is managed by professionals with triple-redundant database backup and proactive event monitoring. This enables you to focus on your job more.

We use Point Monitor for many systems including our video surveillance systems, security, cabling and others. They are always very responsive to our request and help us implement state of the art solutions that fit our needs. The Sales staff and Techs are knowledgeable and easy to work with.
I have worked with Point Monitor for close to 17 years. Through the years they have taken over the maintenance and monitoring of systems they inherited, or as we grew, they put in new panels. Their technicians are solid and there have been many occasions where they helped me out on a Saturday and were able to get my panel operational, so I didn’t need to pay for a fire watch (24/7 security guard). We communicate well and we are well taken care of. I wouldn’t work with them if we weren’t
Point Monitor is far and away one of the most qualified fire alarm/security/ and CCTV contractors in the state. I contract or have contracted with a vast majority of the specialized low-voltage contractors in the area and Point Monitor's expertise is second to none. They are responsive, courteous, and always willing to help problem solve. I highly recommend contacting Point Monitor!
I hired Point Monitor to fix our security camera feed, it was blacking out on our resident floors. Spoke with Michael Beecher a real expert in his field. He sent one of his best men out to fix the problem. They did an amazing job and completely fixed the problem and cleaned up the wires. I would recommend their services to anyone.

I have to appreciate this company for their professionalism and the quality of work that they do, on budget. We almost were bankrupted by City Inspectors making up their own codes and having us redo our entire fire system without documentation to back up what they were requiring. We could not possibly have afforded the new system had it not been for Point Monitor coming and doing the system for a very fair price way below several other bids. We had no choice but to go with Point Monitor or go bankrupt. However, the job they did was far above expectations and we have been with them over 8 years now. The system they installed was state of the art and we always get compliments from inspectors and the Fire Marshalls. Our experience is that the technicians are very professional and knowledgable and respect our requests. I see the other reviewer talking about parking where they were not supposed to, I think it is unfair to ascribe perhaps some bad apples to an entire upstanding company that has many professional and respectful employees. I think this company represents a high value on reasonable cost compared with high integrity and quality of work.
Point Monitor is a great place to learn, grow, and be challenged. Our company attracts accomplished leaders as well as future leaders because of our corporate values and our reputation in the industry.
