Security & Fire for prestige residential development

Choice gets smart with Crestron & Comelit

Choice Fire & Security Solutions has completed security and fire systems installations as part of the creation of nine new prestige penthouses/apartments in a refurbished building development in London’s West End.

The Crestron app now brings intercom flexibility.

A highlight of the Choice installation is a breakthrough integration between the multi-featured Crestron smart home automation system, available for each apartment, and the building’s Comelit audio-visual entrance intercom panel. This combination, developed for the site by the two manufacturers involved, effectively eliminates the need for a dedicated intercom unit in an apartment. Crestron control panels installed throughout the property can act as the in-house intercom and, consequently, smart phones and tablets, using a Crestron app, become a wireless part of the intercom system.

Systems protect apartments and common areas

Choice also installed an intruder alarm system in each dwelling, as well as providing the common areas with a 9-camera CCTV system and a 24-door, card-based access control system (cards grant residents access to relevant areas). A fully addressable fire detection and alarm system (to BS5839: Pt1) was provided to serve the common parts. It features an Advanced panel and Apollo devices. Nine stand-alone, mains powered, combined detector/sounder systems (to BS5839: Pt6) are installed in the dwellings, they signal silently to the main, monitored ‘landlord’ system.

The site is monitored and managed, including concierge service provision, from an adjacent apartment block.
