Smyrna City Hall

Carolyn Cunningham For the AJC

Smyrna city buildings will become more secure. The Smyrna City Council voted recently to award a contract to the lowest bidder LMI Systems Inc. for $137,318. Smyrna’s existing access control system will be upgraded in several city buildings and access control will be added in the remaining city buildings that do not have security access.

The Smyrna Access Control project will include installing 44 new door locations and switching the existing 44 doors to a new system that will integrate with the city’s existing camera video-monitoring software, said Chad Kastner, program manager from Croy Engineering, in a city memo. LMI Systems also will supply the city with a new printer and 200 new ID cards for future employees, he added.

This project will include three new intercom systems to allow for easy staff interaction and remote unlocking of certain doors.
