The former Putney Hospital site in London has been transformed into a selection of 24 luxury apartments secured by the 2N range of Helios I.P. Intercom solutions.
The site of the former Putney Hospital in London has recently been transformed into a selection of 24 luxury apartments and adjacent new primary school - all of which is secured using the 2N range of Helios I.P. Intercom solutions.
Set on the very edge of Putney and overlooking the peaceful common ground just minutes away from Central London, 100 Putney Common is targetted at the luxury market with a high-end finish combining style and the latest integrated technologies as standard specification.
With Control4 home automation already specified into each apartment, project developers Durkan approached Imaginise to recommend a secure Intercom and Door Entry System which would seamlessly integrate with the smart home control system.
As Control4 and 2N are approved interoperable systems, the 2N Helios IP range of Intercoms was introduced to the client, who were impressed with the style and usability of the system, as well as it’s ability to easily integrate into the Control4 home automation control system.
We put forward the 2N system mainly because of its integration capabilities with Control4. ...And with the my2N app giving the ability to effectively answer the front door from the other side of the world was exactly what the client was looking for. explained Paul Laventure, director of the project's AV integrators - Imaginise.
Project AV integrators - Imaginise - worked in partnership with CIE’s team of in-house system architects to specify and design an integrated Intercom and Door Entry System using 2N’s latest Verso Modular Intercoms and Indoor Touch touchscreen interfaces.
Each of the 24 apartments at 100 Putney Common is fitted with the 2N luxury Indoor Touch device which allows high definition video and audio communication with any visitors to the site who call the apartment via the outdoor intercom devices.
These stylish touchscreen intercom interfaces enable residents to quickly allow access to visitors simply via the touch of a button on the screen.
Externally the system uses Helios IP Verso Intercoms - 2N’s high-end modular solution which combines style with versatility. Positioned at the site main gate, the pedestrian gate and the apartment complex front door - the Verso Intercom devices feature HD colour camera, microphone and speaker for direct communication with residents, together with contactless RFID Module (for keyfob/smart card access control) and 2N’s brand new Verso touchscreen Digital Phonebook/Keypad Module which can be fully programmed with resident names and apartment numbers, etc, allowing visitors to easily search and dial the correct residence.
"I would certainly recommend the 2N system to other installers. I would definitely recommend doing the 2N integration training and working with CIE as they have full knowledge of the system." added Laventure.
The Putney Common security system also features 2N’s new Contactless Access Units which provide residents and service staff with fast and easy keyfob/smartcard entry to the apartment complex's secure underground car park and communal terraces.
Project Director, Noel O'Dowd of developers Durkan said of the 2N system, "I would certainly recommend the 2N system over the competition - it's proved to have the scalability , the interface and the user-friendly applications that are second nature to people these days. It really is 21st Century technology."
