When one of PE’s largest financial planning businesses , South City , moved into their new state of the art premises in Walmer Park, 4Tech Solutions from Port Elizabeth were awarded the contract to supply and install all electronic security and access control provisions for the new building. This would include access control for 50 plus staff, an alarm system, a comprehensive fire detection solution and the latest in CCTV monitoring , all of which needed to meet the high operating standards of the client at the same time compliment the modern and sophisticated design of the new premises.
Impro’s MDR901 reader certainly met the criteria here and was the product of choice for all access and exit points for staff within the building and combined with Impro’s IXP220 software , offered South City management, a sound, easy to manage platform for their access control needs. Whilst offering the highest standards of operation and advanced access control technology, the IXP220’s ease of operation when it comes to the adding and managing of new users and the accuracy of its’ reporting services, means future in-house management of the access control system can be done South City staff.
The Pima HP8144 control panel formed the basis of the installed alarm system and with no less than five RXN-400/410 LCD Keypads , allows South City staff the ability to enjoy simplified partitioning of the various departments without complicating the user’s interaction with the system and via its’ 4 wire bus line technology, made for a cost effective and well planned topography for the 4tech technical staff.
The CCTV system was designed around Hikvision’s range of IP cameras and quality NVR’s , thus allowing for 2 megapixel quality throughout the installation and resulting in footage that offers high quality resolution and useable footage to South City management. A combination of DS – Range indoor mini-domes and outdoor bullet cameras where used throughout the premises, all which offer IR during low light conditions and allow for excellent recording footage even during low lux conditions.
In terms of the fire detection solution , Apollo XP95’s , one SA’s largest selling smoke detectors can be found throughout the South City building , providing the best possible solution for South City’s fire detection needs. Ideal for medium to large commercial installations such as South City , the Apollo XP95 detector offers the installer and client a phenomenal track record of reliability and detection performance.
“When providing services and solutions to our customers , it’s imperative that our commitment is backed up by quality products and that our choice of hardware enables our clients to see real return on their investment. The products and solution chosen for the South City installation certainly tied in with our philosophy” 4Tech Solution’s Sales Manager , Mr Wayne Walker
