Onetec’s installation encompassed 20 doors at the site and catered to 300+ authorised users who use TDSi EXprox proximity mullion readers to gain entry. With excellent reliability and read range, the EXprox readers permitted staff to move seamlessly around the building, whilst being vandal resistant to frustrate any attempts at vandalism or unapproved entry.
The installation also included TDSi’s Excel 4 access controllers which offer a powerful, user-friendly and cost-effective way to remotely control doorway access via either a WAN or LAN connection. They are also straightforward to install, being commissioned through a TCP/IP port and are fully integrated with EXgarde PRO for constant monitoring at a central point – which means doors can be sealed or opened either to deal with an intrusion or to protect occupants in the event of a fire or other emergency situation.
To offer a cost-effective installation process, Onetec installed EXgarde PRO on Finishing Brand UK Ltd’s existing IT system, using a virtual server setup. This meant the security system is still kept separate from the rest of the company’s IT storage but didn’t require the installation of additional unnecessary IT hardware.
