Video entry systems have been installed at a new Barratt Homes development, part of the Hendon Waterside regeneration scheme in north west London, in the London borough of Barnet.
One of Comelit’s Gold Partner installers, Lancroft Limited, has fitted Comelit’s ViP system in a high-end residential development, of 286 apartments across four blocks, where 14 of the 3one6 Sense digital panels have also been fitted at the entrances. Featuring a built-in colour camera, the 3one6 Sense series offers the makers say stylish, contemporary design. It has no mechanical keys, working by capacitive touch instead. And with an IK08 rating, the units provide protection against vandalism the manufacturer adds.
Residents can communicate with visitors using Comelit’s Smart monitors, which feature full duplex hands-free loudspeakers and 3.5-inch LCD displays. The monitors are flush-mounted, to go with the contemporary interior décor. The system’s concierge feature enables the concierge to send messages to all, or groups of, residents, for example to give notice of maintenance work on the lifts.
As an IP product, the ViP system sits on the network as well as connecting to the site’s 80-camera IP surveillance system. Being IP-based, the system has no distance limitations and is able to provide an unlimited number of users with simultaneous video and audio communications, while enabling remote connection and diagnostics. The site will include a daytime concierge, private fitness suite, rooftop garden and community hub service.
