Networked Access Control & CCTV Solution for European HQ
Choice Fire & Security Solutions has designed and installed a combined, networked Access Control and CCTV security solution for international cyber security specialists Alert Logic, at their European HQ in the Capital Quarter development in Cardiff city centre. The project awarded to Choice resulted from an introduction by the main contractor, Space & Solutions Ltd, for whom Choice has previously contributed security expertise.
A PLAN card/PINpad-based door access control system was interfaced with Hikvision IP cameras at perimeter and interior positions, along with a networked video recording solution. PLAN’s Virtual Control Centre software brings the hardware elements together seamlessly. The end-user has the ability to control and view access control activity, together with live and 30-day archived CCTV coverage, through a single computer application. A virtual site-map provides an interface to lock/unlock doors and view relevant cameras/recordings.
Trevor Arnott, Choice Director with responsibility for West Region, said: “It is very pleasing to provide an effective, IT-based physical security solution for a client that is an IT expert! Alert Logic has now asked us to quote to provide a clone of this solution at its Belfast offices.”
