Seoul Office of Facilities Management of Hanyang University (HYU) announced the united security system will be implemented on Seoul campus on August 12, 2008. The united security system is an enhanced security and service system which is acquired by converting the existing "human power" centered security system into a new system through the expansion of security and appliance facilities.
About 3,000 lecture rooms, facilities, and offices in HYU will be equipped with security devices which emits direct signal in a case of incursion. At night, outsiders will not be able to enter the school facilities as the doors will only open to members of HYU with an identification card.
This change is being initiated in HYU in order to transform the existing simple security system into an "efficient"security system. As the cost of labor is increasing at a very fast rate, this system is also estimated to reduce the cost needed for the security system in HYU.
Lee Hee-ho, the head of Facilities Management of Seoul campus, said, "The united security system seems to be inconvenient to access the building at Seoul campus. However, preferentially, it means to protect the HYU members by intercepting men on the outside. So we decided to operate the system."
