Currently undergoing major regeneration, London's iconic Wembley Park is the site of the outstanding new residential and leisure development - North West Village - and, at its heart, Emerald Gardens, a new complex of luxury 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.
In order to achieve a flexible and secure door entry and resident intercom system, security specialists Hesis called upon the expertise of Norbain and 2N supply partners CIE to specify and deliver a solution which would meet the needs and high expectations of the development's highly discerning client base.
The recently-formed Norbain / CIE supply partnership brings together a combined team of security experts and system architects to provide consultation, specification and onsite support for the very latest IP-connected access control, intercom and AV integration to its customers - and the team more than delivered in designing and supplying for this high-profile development project.
CIE's in-house system architects specified 2N's top of the range IP Verso modular intercom system for door entry to each of the seven buildings, combined with the innovative 2N Indoor Touch device to be featured within each of the 450+ apartments of phase 1 of this development.
The 2N IP Verso Door Intercoms are positioned at each of the four main access points per building, providing residents and staff with secure, hassle-free door entry via a choice of contactless RFID keyfob or keypad entry code. Each of the 2N Verso Intercom devices also features full HD colour camera and integrated microphone allowing high resolution audio and video communication between visitors, residents and security/concierge staff.
The 2N Verso IP intercoms provide live communication to each apartment within the Emerald Gardens complex via 2N's Indoor Touch - a stylish touch screen video intercom device which provides live video and audio communication to the Verso external intercoms, as well as allowing apartment-to-apartment calls.
Using a highly intuitive user interface, the 2N Indoor Touch provides residents with 2-way communication with visitors to the external entrances (main lobby, garden entrance, car park, etc) before allowing remote access simply by touching the screen.
Residents also have access, via the 2N Indoor Touch, to concierge services, 'Doorbell Snapshot facility' (a stored image library of any missed visitors who called), video & voice messaging and a library of apartment information documents, manuals, etc.
Co-ordinating the project system specification, CIE's Kevin Sherwood explained "Wembley Park will be an iconic redevelopment for the Capital, so ensuring the system met the high expectations of both client and residents was key to project success.
"Therefore, the client's decision to choose the 2N solution was based not only on innovative product, but equally important was the level of service and support we were able to jointly provide as part of the new supply partnership with Norbain. Pooling the skills and resources of CIE, Norbain and 2N's experts, we have been able to deliver an exceptional level of support, from inital specification, right through to project implementation and moving forward into future stages of the development."
"The 2N IP control software was also custom adapated to support full connectivity with the development's Enterprise Management Server, enhancing the total solution environment."
The stylish and elegant Indoor Touch user interface allows 2-way communication with IP door intercom systems, VoIP telephones/videophones, or other Indoor Touch devices on the same network, simply at the touch of an on-screen button. The device/control system will also allow for integration with other third-party IP controlled devices to provide remote, touch-screen control of building management systems such as lighting, heating, curtains, etc.
The 2N Indoor Touch is available in both black and white finish.
