Scope of Works
As part of the scope of works Britannia were requested to implement a system to monitor the building’s site wide sprinkler system and building management system via the fire alarm monitoring. This enables the staff to have prior warning of any failures in these systems, ensuring the safety of the residents at all times.
Intruder Alarm Installation
The intruder alarm equipment comprised of door contacts and sounders throughout the whole site. The primary use of the intruder alarm was to monitor all of the external doors around the site to ensure the safety of the residents within. The master control panel was manufactured by Galaxy by Honeywell Security.
Access Control System
The Access Control system was supplied by Reader Options Ltd and was fitted throughout the whole site to allow staff and tenants to gain access to controlled areas as required. Britannia developed the system utilising long range readers to allow disabled tenants easy access to their living quarters.
Internal and External CCTV
The IP CCTV system, supplied by EZ CCTV Ltd, was designed to give coverage throughout the whole development inside and outside. The system utilises fully functional pan-tilt zoom cameras externally, and fixed cameras internally. The images can then be stored on the hard drives of the Hikvision network video recorder and are readily available should the end user require to view the images at a later date.
