Videx, in partnership with Enterprise Security Technologies, has successfully installed a complex door entry management system at Connaught House, which provides private residential housing and commercial offices in the heart of London.
The key access control requirements was to provide a secure easy-to-use system with 24-hour video door entry to visitors, providing a clear image of the person arriving. The door entry panel also had to be designed to specific requirements so that it could be easily installed into the existing environment.
Talking about the installation, Ben Davies, South East Sales Manager at Videx, said: “Most residents at Connaught House are internationally based – as far away as Saudi Arabia and India – and they come and go from their properties, using their apartment as a London base, but they mainly live elsewhere. Providing secure and convenient access control was therefore an absolute priority. A key aspect of the project was to also install a system that was specifically designed to meet the client’s needs so a bespoke panel was created so that the old panel could be replaced, using existing cables, without expense or time spent on making alterations to the surrounding brickwork or having to repair any damage from the installation of the new panel.”
Enterprise Security Technologies, working closely with Videx, recommended and installed the Videx flagship VX2200 digital door entry system to ensure the security of the apartments and building but also allow easy and convenient access as well as 24-hour contact with a concierge and security team.
Neil Cook, Director at Enterprise Security Technologies, added: “It was a complex project but by matching the client’s bespoke requirements to one of Videx’s leading door entry systems, we were able to overcome the challenges presented, quickly and smoothly. Residents can clearly see visitors on a video image and grant access easily if needs be or contact a 24-hour security team immediately if required. We recommended that our client chose the Videx VX2200 system because of its audio and visual qualities coupled with its ease of use.”
