Maxxess has announced the implementation of its eFusion security management solution to safeguard residents at Spring Mews, a £50 million 400-bedroom student residence and 93-bedroom hotel in Vauxhall, London.
To integrate advanced keyless access control, surveillance and intruder detection onto a single platform the developer, CLS Holdings plc, chose the Maxxess eFusion security management platform to run separate surveillance, intruder detection, and access control for the student residence and hotel while optimising functionality at a much lower cost than a conventional physical security information management (PSIM) solution.
As a modular system built on open technology software, eFusion has delivered one common situational view via a user-friendly interface, off-the-shelf integration and future expandability with the freedom to use equipment from different manufacturers. These include: SALTO Aelement access control across 640 readers; Honeywell Galaxy intruder detection; 256 Axis IP full-HD cameras; and a Wavestore video surveillance recording platform.
This set-up combined with simple, intuitive programming has made it easy for the building managers to manage individual room access privileges, arrange instant room moves, extend stays, cancel cards, enable remote-door opening, activate meeting rooms, identify low batteries and much more. They can also gather real-time audit trail data from every door, programme multiple camera views, settings and protocols and allow smartphones to be used as room keys via near-field communications.
David Towse, Project Manager at CLS Holdings plc said: “The Maxxess eFusion solution has provided all the functionality and flexibility we needed to cost-effectively manage, control and secure our properties to a high quality standard.”
