Impro16 provides access control to London sports facility.

BPT Security Systems (UK) : 26 April, 2007  (Application Story)
Key pads and proximity readers enhance access control to sports facilities with time-limited temporary visitor access capability.
BPT Security Systems (UK) has had its access control and door entry systems installed into a new community sports facility in London.

The Pavilion is a new £2.8 million community facility in the heart of Stonebridge Estate in North West London, comprising pitches, courts and a multi-use hall, with spacious changing rooms and a café. Work on The Pavilion took 12
months to finish and is now managed by Hillside Housing Trust, part of The Hyde
Group (one of the largest housing associations in the UK).

BPT's Impro16 access control system has been installed by Genesis Integrated
Systems, with 14 keypad / proximity and proximity-only readers fitted to the
four changing rooms and the entrances to the building. Staff members have tags
to freely come and go, whilst authorised visitors are allocated a code which has
time restrictions. Visitors simply enter the code into the keypad within the
permitted time frame to gain access to the changing rooms. Such a design makes for good security and has time saving benefits for members of staff who don't have to bother with programming visitor tags in and out of the system.

The Impro16, which supports up to 2,000 tags operating 16 doors, is ideal for
such a set up as it is not only feature rich, but also very easy to manage.

In addition to the proximity access control, Genesis also installed a BPT System
200 video door entry system, with DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) compliant
entry panels and two Lynea monitors. The entry panels feature tactile
illuminated buttons, Braille characters and LED indicators.

The BPT door entry and access control equipment was installed by Genesis
Integrated Systems as part of a larger security system featuring CCTV, intruder
detection, induction loop and noise control systems. Glenn Grant of Genesis
Integrated Systems is pleased with the finished work and found working with BPT
to be a very positive experience: 'the service provided by BPT is excellent.
Technical support is very good and the main reason we try to use BPT where

Chinyere Ugwu, Chief Executive Hillside Housing Trust, said: 'The flexibility
and freedom that this system gives to the staff team, coupled with excellent
security, makes the Impro16 an ideal choice for such a community facility. We
are delighted with its ease of operation.'
