A3V Club

We make stuff that plugs in and inspires. An established group of makers at the Asylum who make theatrical, digital, and programmable works while helping to maintain and improve the equipment, services and communications infrastructure. Like our Facebook page.

How do I find it?


The Door is locked? How do I get in?

If you've received an invitation to our August Lock system on your Bluetooth phone:

  • Launch the app
  • Walk up to the door
  • Select the A3V Club as the "key" you're using
  • At the door, give the app a moment to find and connect with the lock (you won't see anything but a deadbolt)
  • The circle should connect and turn red, meaning the door is locked
  • Press the circle, and you should hear the lock open up
  • The circle should turn green and you can enter
  • The lock will automatically engage again after 30 seconds - If this happens, you can just manually unlock it before closing the door, or use your app to "unlock it" again.

What we offer

The A/V club has a plethora of lighting, audio, projection, cables, and other electronic and digital equipment available to Asylum members for use after a simple certification process. Currently the A/V Club is putting the finishing touches on a formal loan Library where members are allowed to remove items from the "Closet" and Asylum. Equipment in the A/V Closet is owned and maintained by members and not the Asylum. Access is granted to the closet through a Smart Phone app which requires Bluetooth. Learn more about that app here: August Smart Lock System Keys are available also, plus the door can be remotely opened by an A3V Club administrator.
