The suite of equipment installed by A Matter of Security provides a vast amount of security through the integration of door entry and access control equipment. The functionality of both CAME and Impro technology undoubtedly contributed to the project’s success, partly due to its seamless integration and synchronicity.
Due to the nature of this project all wiring had already been installed, therefore A Matter of Security were required to implemented an IP360 system. As a result, all of the door entry and access control equipment mentioned below is IP360 compatible.
VR door entry panels were installed at the 3 main entrance doors, which regulates access to the specific areas within the building. These door entry systems enhance building security as visitors could be verified before entering the building. For example, at the Travelodge digital vandal resistant video entry panels were installed. These 5 module units contained a video and audio module, digital display, porter call button, keypad, and proximity reader. Subsequently, providing a plethora of versatiliy and functionality for the concierge at the reception desk.
The communication from these entry panels were received by CAME XTS XiP video receivers, which facilitated the calls between the visitor and the call recipient. A Matter of Security installed a variety of both the 5” and 7” CAME XTS receivers that were located within the residential rooms and at a selection of concierge desks.
In alignment with the project requirements, an access control system was vital to regulate building management. A Matter of Security installed the Impro Access Control solution on the Basic Package. Impro’s Basic Package permits the administration of 1000 credentials, and the control of 100 doors at a single location. 46 TRT MDR Wiegand door readers were installed on critical access points across the building to manage the control of individuals. These Impro readers work effortlessly with the access control system installed, which helps optimise the flexibility and functionality of this security solution.
In addition, the Impro access control solution is capable of controlling lift management which further enhances the building access permissions. The Impro solution also facilitates the credential permissions which determine which floors individuals have access to. For example, Travelodge guests will be prohibited from gaining access to floors 12+ as they would not have the permissions for the residential floors.
