Door entry control from Urmet Domus protects Manchester office building.

Urmet Domus Communication And Security : 01 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Voice controlled door entry system used as part of state of the art security system to protect new office accommodation in the heart of Manchester.
Before opening their prestigious new facility in Manchester, serviced offices specialists Anvic Developments, specified that the very latest technology should be employed to create a safe and secure environment for everybody who worked and visited the building.

Piccadilly House is in the very heart of Manchester overlooking Piccadilly Gardens. It has been converted by Anvic Developments to a very high standard and offers six floors of flexible office accommodation to businesses that want to enjoy the benefits of working in a serviced office environment.

Rosendale based William Dyer Electrical was contracted to provide all the building services, including the intruder alarm and CCTV systems. Of particular priority was the need to ensure that access to Piccadilly House could be tightly controlled without causing any inconvenience to people working in the building. Managing Director, William Dyer explains: "We wanted to install a system which would allow Anvic Developments' clients to effortlessly gain access whilst having the ability to keep out unwanted visitors."

William Dyer consulted Urmet who designed a solution based on an Urmet door entry system working in conjunction with an FDI Passan access control system.

The Digivoice door entry panel located at the front entrance of Piccadilly House is fully DDA compliant and offers both audio communication and video. Visitors can communicate directly with a tenant or seek access by talking to the building's receptionist located on the first floor. The Passan access control reader is built into the Digivoice panel and allows access via the front entrance to anyone holding a valid fob in close proximity to the reader.

Authorised personnel are issued with access control fobs which can be programmed individually or in groups to allow access to certain parts of the building at specified time and days of the week.

William Dyer adds: "The two systems work extremely well together and in fact as far as the users are concerned it is as though there is only one system in place. Anvic Developments are so pleased with the Urmet solution that they have instructed us to install the same system combination in all their future serviced office developments.
