In St John’s Wood in north-west London, Collection Place is a high specification portered development of 14 luxury apartments, near the famed Abbey Road studios.
Home automation and integration company Advanced Integration (AI) asked Comelit to present custom door entry products, as part of a programme of works. Specification included bespoke brass video flush panels with video monitors and the capability to manage from a mobile, with links to 24-hour concierge services.
Kem Rashica, Estate Manager of The Collection Management Limited / Harrods Estates Asset Management says: “Every element of our development, set in heart of our beautiful St John’s Wood, was created to present residents with a high-end luxury lifestyle, from specification to security and privacy. We are always looking for best ways to maintain and futureproof this expectation. Advanced Integration highlighted the opportunity to present smart door entry systems and recommended Comelit, as a brand renowned for delivering on design and style without compromising on technology or security. The installation was seamless and residents are now delighted to be able to manage their home from the convenience of their mobile.”
And Maria Tsiftis, Chief Operating Officer of Advanced Integration added: “When it came to upgrade the door entry, we wanted to incorporate a visual, smart capability, without affecting the style or ambience on site. Being a residential development, we also had to be conscious of any works programme not causing disruption to daily lives. Comelit responded with a bespoke specification, including high end entrance panels, monitors with video capability and concierge systems, enabling a combination of door entry and messaging. Being involved from the design stages ensured a smooth delivery and beautiful custom finish befitting to this luxury development.”
Comelit designed the door entry to operate through its ViP system, which lets residents receive video intercom calls on a smartphone.
Sam Arnold, Business Development Manager at Comelit UK added: “St John’s Wood is one of London’s most upmarket residential locations, and Collection Place has been established in the elegant villa style housing that is synonymous with the area. Any enhancements to door entry had to be delivered to complement this lavish attention on detail, but also serve discerning homeowners who want the advantages of service and latest technology. By working closely with Advanced Integration, we have delivered a sleek and functional, smart security solution to accommodate these requirements.”
