A newly built elderly care facility, Dar l-Annunzjata, required a state-of-the-art Extra Low Voltage system, encompassing:
- Passive IT Network with Fibre Optic backbone
- Access Control
- Public Address & Sound
- Intercoms and Vehicle Barriers
The solutions integrate seamlessly to provide the facility’s staff with complete control of their security, sound, and IT systems. The IT systems installed allow high bandwidth applications to operate effortlessly, such as Wi-Fi, IP-based TV, and Nurse call systems.
AIS installed the security system across 12 floors of the elderly home consisting of:
An IP-based CCTV surveillance. This was installed throughout the whole building, linked to reception, facilities, and management offices.
An RFID-based access control solution. This was used in order for access to public areas, private rooms, lifts, as well as road barriers.
Vehicle barriers were also installed on the premises car park, with access via card readers. This ensures that the facility managers know who is entering the building, giving them peace of mind and full control over who can enter the building.
The security systems were complemented by an all-encompassing Public Address and Sound system. The PA system delivers audio throughout all the building’s corridors, whilst sub-systems cater for music delivery within the gym and public halls. The Public Address system was integrated with the building’s fire alarm system to ensure adequate evacuation of all residents and staff, in the event of an emergency. All systems relied on a resilient passive IT network system, which included a fibre optic backbone. The passive IT network was certified to Cat6A standards.
The client gains multiple benefits from the fully-fledged security system installed across the entire building.
Through the use of an electronic door access control, the client has the flexibility to control all movement throughout the building.
The online access control system allows for full control of access rights and monitoring of movements via PC or smartphone. This online system serves the needs of both Management and IT personnel, with easy functionality and access.
The wide range of Extra Low Voltage systems installed allows the residential care home facility to operate effectively with minimal disruptions to operations.
