Riverwalk – Modern, massive and future proofed. This huge contract was for the construction of two towers of high-end residential apartments within central London. We were instructed to install a high-tech security and access system with Crestron integration. Being in London it brought with it complex logistical challenges. With all equipment being delivered within one hour time slots, in the congested areas of the city. Along with the sheer complexity and depth of the security system installed. This was one of our most complex and large scale projects yet.
This system is compatible with the residents’ smart devices so that they can use their mobiles and other technology to access the doors and lifts within the building.
This state of the art IP CCTV installation and network infrastructure was installed by Waldon Security. This incorporated 96 cctv security cameras, a video wall within the security suite and recorders, with a total of 80TB of recording space. Furthermore, all cameras had to be selected for quality, longevity but most importantly aesthetics within what is a blue ship building.
Waldon Security, working with TClarke Intelligent Buildings, installed a 10GB fibre and switch data network throughout the whole of the development. This is used to link all manner of communications, security and building control systems.
Waldon Security installed a site wide video intercom, linking it to the high end Crestron integration and control system on site – this allows residents to use their smart devices to communicate with an on site central concierge, and callers to the building permitting access should they choose. In addition to the video entry system we installed a proximity access system that control access to not only eighty doors on site but also to drive the lifts making them button free for all of the residents.
