APPLICATION PSIM protects two London tower blocks A new Concierge and Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solution from Intergrated Security Manufacturing (ISM) is protecting two tower blocks in Haringey, enabling authorised council employees to control door access and manage fire and security systems from anywhere within the council’s estate. Newbury House, Finsbury House, John Keats House and Thomas Hardy House in Wood Green, London, already feature four of ISM’s Ultimate door entry systems as well as another two, thirdparty technology systems (Elizabeth Blackwell and George Lansbury) from Entrotec, utilising its Apex Dual path speech technology. Thanks to the Genesys PSIM from ISM, multiple technologies can be controlled, regardless of the manufacturer, providing enhanced security to residents in 510 flats across the six towers. Genesys allows the integration not just of door entry systems, but also multiple systems from multiple manufacturers – all from one holistic integrated security system. Every electronic security or fire safety device can be monitored and controlled from a single platform. Such was the complexity of the project, that from initial design of the system to completing the installation took around two years to complete. Fire alarms, access control and CCTV can all now be controlled from one computer Fire detection at luxury student accommodation in Durham A new student accommodation development in the heart of Durham is the latest location for Kentec’s Taktis fire detection and alarm technology. Ernest Place is a complex of 5 and 6 bed apartments and studios boasting features such as a gym, sauna and on-site cinema, and delivering a modern student lifestyle that is described as University student living at its finest. MRM Solutions opted for an open protocol system built around the Taktis Technology Platform. A fire safety system comprising three 8- loop Taktis networked fire control panels, one in each accommodation block, plus a Vision repeater using Hochiki ESP protocol is connected to primarily Hochiki smoke and sounder beacon bases (VADs). Securing medicines at Spire Manchester Hospital Abloy UK has supplied Spire Manchester Hospital with PROTEC2 CLIQ and Traka 21 key management systems to improve the security of medicines and increase nursing efficiency. Nursing efficiency is detrimentally affected by poor management of keys, and teams using older mechanical systems can have problems locating keys to gain access to controlled drugs – wasting time and affecting patient care. Spire Manchester Hospital specified a combination of PROTEC2 CLIQ keys and cylinders which were retrofitted to a range of Bristol Maid drug cabinets throughout the hospital, including theatres, out-patients and several wards. Staff CLIQ keys were housed in Traka 21 key cabinets fitted across the wards. PROTEC2 CLIQ is based on mechanical high security disc cylinders combined with encrypted electronic locking and identification. Power to the lock is provided by the CLIQ key, therefore no batteries or wires are required. The system allows for remote key management, providing audit trails on locks and padlocks, and the ability to remove lost or stolen keys from the system, substantially increasing the security of controlled drugs. PROTEC2 CLIQ was combined with the Traka21 key management system, which provides nurses’ access to a single key for the duration of their shift. By entering a PIN code to access a specific key which they validate using the wall programming unit, they can access every cabinet they’re authorised to open. www.psimagazine.co.uk 51
