Types of organisations suited for Johnson Controls

P2000 is suited for multi-tenant sites (for example, large apartment buildings or facility management services of multi-office buildings) where the advanced permissions of P2000 enable independent access control of the separate sites, without affecting the use of other tenants in the system.

The system is effective for cloud-based central access control, where one organized location can have the overview and manage locations according to a geo-located map.
