Aston Villa FC’s Maintenance Manager, Josh Tooth commented, “We have been working with TDSi for a number of years as the company understands the complexity of our access control needs and provides solutions that give us peace of mind.
Using TDSi’s access control products and software has given us a highly flexible approach to our access control; we can easily add additional access on a selected door and integrate it into the rest of the network.”
Because of the ongoing programme of upgrades and dispersed locations of access control points around both the Villa Park Stadium and the Bodymoor Heath training ground, TDSI suggested Aston Villa FC use the EXgarde Pro software solution to manage a range of different access controllers across both sites.
Having organically evolved, Aston Villa FC’s facilities use TDSi’ s EXcel2, EXcel4 (serving two and four readers respectively), and EXpert controllers which control individual doorways on the network.
The EXgarde Pro solution can be scaled up or down with ease, as operational requirements dictate. What’s more, with unlimited user-definable holidays, automatic fire door release, time-sheet reports, and full integration with intruder alarm systems, TDSi’s controllers have offered Aston Villa FC the flexibility needed for the future evolution of its access control needs.
