Flexibility in Door Entry, Access Control and CCTV
Victoria House is a three-story office block in Bramhall, a suburb of South Manchester, that was refurbished and now has the capacity for up to ten tenants.
The owner of the property, Quorum Estates Ltd, realised however that the area that each tenant occupied needed to be varied and in order to cater for visitors the security system at the main communal door would require a different and more flexible approach than the existing analogue audio door entry system could provide.
Quorum consulted Access Ability (UK) Ltd who suggested a software-based system that could easily by configured to provide access throughout the building and which could be changed as the tenant’s needs dictated. If tenants require more space additional handsets can be easily configured or relocated.
The system was quickly installed and Mr Slater, the Managing Director of Quorum Estates Ltd has been pleased with the rapid and efficient response to change requests which now no longer requires a tedious and expensive installation as with the previous analogue system but is carried out in minutes.
Access control for tenants through the main door was specified as ID recognition by proximity which now provides an easy to use system where users can be simply added or deleted and which also provides a high level of vandal resistance.
External cameras are linked to a digital CCTV system which has the capability of being viewed remotely through the Internet. Quorum appreciates the advantage of being able to carry out a clear visual assessment from a remote location.
Claire is the office manager at Quorum and kindly commented, ” I find Access Ability are efficient, friendly and reliable, a family run company helping Quorum with their diverse needs over the last 15 years from multi-let office blocks to large industrial units.
Intercoms, access controls, CCTV – Access Ability show excellent knowledge in all these disciplines and are a pleasure to deal with – I have no hesitation in recommending them “.
